Do you love chess, but don't have time to sit down for a long game? Play everyday with just two moves a day, and add a little style to your home to boot!

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Supply List:

Frame with glass
spray paint
cheap chess set
measuring tape
double stick tape
sheet metal
metal clippers/shears
glue (I used E-6000)
<p>I love the creativity, but board orientation is wrong. Not trying to troll, but it's surprising how many chessboards are not set up properly. Please google and show us the right way.</p>
Oh that sucks. Oh well, good with your other entry though :)
Hey, if I were you I would enter this in the I Could Make That Contest. I saw it on thisiswhyimbroke.com for $219.95 ! I was shocked at the price cause I figured it would be fairly easy to make for a much cheaper price. Anyway if you do enter it in the contest, good luck :) and nice job.
That's a fantastic idea since I'm sure it cost less than $50, but sadly I can't. The I Could Make That Contest opened after I posted this ible. I did enter my <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Knit-Headphones/" rel="nofollow">knit headphones</a> in that contest. Thanks for the heads up though!
love the idea. I would of made each square enclosed. Im a chess player, and I love this
Now, this is really cool! I love the decoration of having the game on the wall, but I also love the idea of vertical chess. My wheels are spinning over time and I know some individuals who this would make the perfect Christmas gift! Nice work!
really great idea! and looks nice too
This vertical chess board i have seen it first time here. I really don't imagine that <a href="http://www.jaquesamerica.com/chess/chess-set.html" rel="nofollow">chess</a> can be played by vertically. It is totally innovative idea to play chess.<br> <br>
This is really cool, and it looks great. Good luck in the toy contest.
I love art that serves a purpose! This is a great example of interactive art. Only comment would be the color pattern of the board should be inverted.<br/>Only If the glass represents the white, and the colored squares represent black. <br/>An old ryme of "Bishop white, on the right.<br/><br/>This will be an excellent living room / entrance piece!
