How To Make A Duck Tape Picture Holder
You know...they sell these at the dollar store. Made out of plastic, springs on the cues for easier use & you can up-cycle it by drilling out the pockets & add netting under each one for the pockets. The balls are all plain colored, so you can just get a small paint brush & use some acrylic paint to make 'em "official". Take some 1/2"dowels or use craft sticks (popsicle sticks) & make some squared legs, like mini 2' X 4''s. You can even apply hinges, as to make it more portable or for easy storage. Next, take a piece of felt & cut it a bit larger than the card stock & wrap it over that stock paper. Next, cut around the pockets & apply that netting. Use your imagination. Fabric can be used, bottle caps, heck, aluminum, just give it a look you can be proud of. Use fabric paint to draw your lines thinly on the table (felt) & glue it onto the craft sticks which are under the table, providing your sturdiness) to add that extra little stability. It comes with a rack, a mentioned, balls, & cues. If you want to get extra creative, as I did, you can add a rack slot underneath the table. There's a million & one ways to make you dollar store pool table into something that'd easily sell for much more afterward. Another one I did, I used craft stick, ends cut flat, & glued them together with wood glue, as you would the base of the house. Just measure the table & make your four sides and boom bam! You've got a sturdy base. This one just can't be tucked away as easily but its definitely a conversation piece. I added a hinged bottom to mine that closes with a small latch that I put a mini lock on & I have the key. Pool BANK! I decorated it as a real table & used my dremel to make a slot for quarters to go in. Everyone gets a kick out of it. Your friend will challenge you, your family, etc. Practice makes perfect & since you own it, time to become a mini pool shark (ouch! I bet those would hurt if you were in your pool. ;-P) & fill that pool/piggy bank up! Hope I said all of that with good clarity. Maybe I will do another & FINALLY test my skills on Inscrutables. Thanks for reading & g'night! :-).
