When you strip the carpets, you usually find a lot of dust and the odd bit of loose change that you lost decades ago. But one homeowner found a whole lot more when he ripped up his old carpet – a giant, hand painted Monopoly board. This is probably the last thing you expect to find when undertaking some property DIY.
Every home needs its own version of the classic board game, but most of them you can pack away and store in the cupboard when you’re done. Reddit / Nnewel A man pulled up the carpet at his home and found a giant Monopoly Board. The home’s previous owner had painstakingly painted the entire board onto the floorboards underneath the carpet.
There are accurate colours for the different tiles, and the game’s famous squares such as Free Parking and Go To Jail have been recreated. Judging by the snaps a lot of the boards have not been filled in although you can make out Change, an unnamed station and the dreaded Income Tax square.
