A simple, easy-to-make, portable board game

My husband and I both love playing games, especially board games. We have a games bookcase that's full of our favorites, but the one we play the most is Go. One of the reasons why we love Go so much is because we made our own game set. We wanted to be able to toss the set in our pockets or my purse and go to coffee shops or the park to play. It was one of the easiest projects we've ever done, and also one of the most useful. Here's how we did it.

Paint your own polka dot rug

Rugs can transform a mediocre space into something more special but it's not always easy to find one you love on a tight budget. While nothing can compare to that rug you've been saving up for, this DIY is a great option for areas that need a little pick me up such as a studio, a guest room, or your front porch.
