Fantastic use of salvaged items, there is something very satisfying about rescuing furniture and giving it a new lease of life.

 

Love the bookcases under the table top, great use of what's usually a wasted space  ::D: .

I love skimming freebies!  Looks like you scored pretty big too.  Gotta love "trickle down" economics eh?

Awesome!

 

Some day when my wife and I build or buy our dream home, I will have not only a paint room and a gaming room. If it's a big enough room, I'd have both set up in there.

That was the way it was originally here, the book shelves, game table and my painting area were all one room with maps on the walls...

Now my paint room is in my office, but I still have a dedicated painting area at least!

Scroll down and you will see what it looks like now, going to be modified later today...

There was another thread I saw where someone did a WIP of rebuilding a room from the walls out for his game room, That was cool!

Wow, great idea!  I have seen a lot of usable office furniture going to the dumpster and this never occurred to me.  Now I have something to shoot for!!!

Very cool set up. wished I had space for the hobby.

 

I stash my paints and stuff and when itÅ› painting time, I have to arrange it on the dinner table, and then store it again afterwards.

 

Hoping for more room in the future.

When I clean my table up I will post pictures.  Ten years ago when I moved into our new house I created my gaming table.  In our old house I had replaced our dark luan doors with oak.  I took two 36" bi-fold doors and two 12" bi-fold doors.  Putting the 36" and the 12" side by side I created two 2' by 7' surfaces.  With three 12" x 48" boards I screwed all the doors together on the bottom.  I then placed them on an old dinning table and a 6' folding table.  I then bought a 5' x 15' green felt tablecloth.  That is my gaming table.

Sweet table!! I love the bookshelves as the base of the table idea, that's brilliant.

 

Nice gaming set up, and the price is one that I like as well.

      Now that our new house is done and we are unpacking, living in it for 11 days as of the time of this posting. I wanted to go ahead and start up a WIP thread showing my hobby/game room and the WIP as the last few days I've been setting it up so that I can paint. My OCD won't allow me to actually paint (even though I have an area for it now) until I have the rest of the room cleaned up and organized!
       
      Let's start up with the original plans -
       

       
      And here it is after it was done, a blank slate!

      Do you need a gaming table to play games? Once you play on one you will love the enhancement and functionality it provides!

      So I have a new vacant room in the house that I'm taking over for painting and game playing... as much as i wanted too i could not fit a 4x6 table in there comfortably so i opted for a 4x4.
       
      I had a long piece of 1" thick MDF laying around that was still in decent shape so i cut it down here

       
      Then I laid them out and using some steel brackets, reinforced the join, i'm not too worried about the table failing but this MDF
      is pretty heavy, best to err on the side of safe tootsies


       
      I hit up JoAnns fabric store in order to get some felt. What i found in the way of felt wasnt really what i had in mind, not sure why though so i ended up with some wool stuff... seemed to be identical to felt just about double the thickness though...
       
      I opted to use staples agains advice to use adhesive only because my 6 year old was helping me with the table and we would be working inside.
       
      stretched and stapled, went through close to half a box of staples
       

       
      tomorrow I'll cut and stain the framing and legs and possible the surround... either way.. see ya later...
