I either can’t afford the Star Wars stuff I’d like, or they’re not available, so sometimes I just make things. I’m not the most talented at crafting, but I do what I can.
I had an old beat up stool with lots of dings that I was using as a plant stand, so it had stains on the top. I thought about tossing it, but needed a small table for my drink in the movie room, so I repurposed it. I wanted ot make it more Star Wars, so my girlfriend used her decal machine to make me a huge dejarik sticker for the top of it.
I’d been using it for a while when I had a new idea. Does anyone else remember the dejarik table in the original Millennium Falcon toy? For some reason it was blue and the board was yellow and brown.
I thought it would be fun to emulate that version, so I got to work. I removed the old sticker, sanded everything down, and painted a few coats of blue. My girlfriend made me a new yellow and brown top for it and here we go.
I still need to put on a couple coats of poly to protect the surface, but I’m happy with it. Most will probably think it’s just some strange looking thing, but I know the story behind it, so it’s special to me.
