Indoor-Outdoor Game Table

Article excerpt

You paint the pattern on the glass top

Not rain, nor sleet, nor even spilled milk will harm this transparent game board--it's painted on the underside of a glass tabletop. The dark red checkerboard resembles fused glass but is simple to make: Just spray-paint the pattern on 3/s-inch safety glass. The pattern is cut out of adhesive-backed shelf paper, which is affixed to the glass. The paint, a Krylon color called Stained Glass, is available at art supply and crafts stores for about $6 per can.
