We used the Fancy X Farmhouse Table plans to create the table then stenciled the game boards onto the sanded tabletop with a pencil. After that we scored over the pencil tracing to prevent stain bleed over, then carefully polyurethaned over the sections we did not want stained. After the poly dried we used a small craft brush to paint the stain in one color at a time.
