Hanging Out and About
In a home office or kid's room, vintage game surfaces can make for charming, offbeat shelves. Whereas storage pieces very rarely pack personality, these are as entertaining as they are genuinely useful, thanks to the sturdy brackets undergirding the cardboard.
Elevate to Art Status
Looking past the original purpose of a well-made wooden Chinese checkers board, Apartment Therapy celebs Greg and Deirdre chose to mount a particularly attractive one on a wall in their kitchen. With its sculptural form and geometric precision, it is, in its own distinctive way, a work of art.

A Spot for Everything
The pits of a Mancala board not only fit the game's pebbles, they're also amply sized to accommodate home office supplies, jewelry, and bedroom miscellany. The board is sort of like an ice cube tray, but sleeker. Alternatively, you can follow the lead of Etsy seller FlotsamJetsamCrafts by turning a Mancala board into an artsy installation on the wall.
