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 1

This week we’re going all-in and turning our quaint family retreat into the Cottage Casino. To do this, we’ll start by turning mom’s kitchen table into a hidden poker table. We’ll felt the underside and add a custom bumper with drink holders. Gramp’s old daybed will be a great vessel for a pop-up craps table. We’re also adding some cool accents like a beer dispenser, a humidor, and mood lighting to make this covert project a gamble that pays off.
