A while back I stumbled upon this old ironing board and decided to buy it.
At the time, I had no idea what I was going to do with it. It was just different, but I knew I could turn it into…something!
At one point, I really, REALLY wanted to turn it into a table. I thought it would make a neat entryway table or even a sofa table, but it just seemed too rickety to work as a piece of furniture.
So, in the end, I turned it into a welcome sign that has turned into one of my most successful posts to date.
Not only was this sign an instant success, but it sold after only two days in the store!!
So, naturally, I’ve been on the lookout for another ironing board ever since.
Luckily, while chatting with a sweet friend over at the store a few weeks ago, I saw she had an ironing board stashed in the back of her booth! I had never seen it there before! She said she hated it and I was welcome to it.. for FREE!! I was beyond excited and couldn’t wait to get it home and turn it into another sign!
I opened it up.
It was amazing!
It wasn’t at all like the ironing board I had before. It was heavy, and sturdy, and the board was thick and wide. It was just too nice to turn into another sign.
I mean, as nice as an ironing board can possibly be!
OK, now don’t be shocked, but I have a confession to make….
I did NOTHING to this ironing board!
Not a thing.
No paint, no sanding, nada!
So, while my husband was away from the house, I crept into his office and started rearranging and decorating.
Anyone else do this or just me?
So, what do you think?
By the way, the hubby LOVES it!
So, would you use an ironing board like this in your house?
