Now, cut your plywood to the same size as your vintage game board as well. You will need 2 pieces of this.

Screw the plywood onto the back of the wood frame you built. You can do this step gain by predrill holes through the plywood another 2X4” frame. Insert your screws to hold them together.

Now, the other piece will be for the door of the vintage spice rack.

Install one shelf half way between the tops and bottom of the spice rack. Simply cut a 2X4 to fit inside the spice rack. You can screw it into place from the back.

Now, attach the other sheet of plywood to the front of the box. Do this by install a piano hinge on the left side of the frame. Attach one side to the frame you built and one side of the hinge to the vintage window.

On the right side install your magnetic door hook. You could also use a hook and eye hook like you used to find on old screen doors.

Now, flip the vintage window box five down. Install your picture hanging hooks on the back of the box. They should be attached into the plywood you put on the back.

Now, flip the box back over and lay it on it’s back on a flat work surface.

Now, lightly sand any areas needed on the wooden box and roof.

Wipe away any dust and prime it out.

Now, once the primer has dried you can paint the inside and outside of the Vintage Game Board Spice Rack.
