It's going to be a high stakes weekend as the boys go all-in and turn their quaint family retreat into the Cottage Casino. But a gambling den would never pass the "Mom Test” so it'll need to be discreetly hidden away until their high-roller friends come calling. To accomplish this sleight-of-hand, the boys are converting their parents' furniture and knick-knacks into cleverly-disguised custom poker tables, craps tables, beer dispensers, cigar humidors and more.

Project Steps

Step 4

Every winter we have with the guys, at the cottage, we end up playing poker. So we decided that this year, we’re going to convert the inside of the cottage into a Cottage Casino. The first step is turning our mom’s dining table into a poker table. We decided to take the top off, so we could permanently attach the felt to the underside of the table. That way, when you flip it over, you’ve got nice green felt to play on. For an extra feature, we did a perimeter surround made of wood that has arm rests and cup holders built-in.
