Recently in one of my Yahoo groups someone asked me about my Gameboard Sampler Box. This sampler is a favorite of mine and I am so glad that it was finised this way. I use it as an endtable in my family room. I looked around for wrought iron legs but didn't have much success with finding them so I settled for wooden ones. It has a very thick glass on it which protects it. So far it has been easy to wipe up and has pretty much withstood the test of 2 grandchildren, I think it was made to last. The top is very heavy so its not so easy to lift it on and off but when when you do, you will find plenty of storage space. What better place to store Christmas stitched ornaments.

Love your idea for an end table and the contents are a fabulous idea as well. I have this stitched up and STILL not finished into a gameboard we can use. It pleases me to no end to see yours and will perhaps inspire DH to get moving on MINE!!! LOL

WOW!! What a great idea for this design, I love it. I'm assuming you made the table? Wouldn't it be great if we could buy something like this for our stitching? I love to see things like this, so inspiring!
Thanks for sharing it!
