What's Old is New Again!!!

 OK, I am embarrassed to actually put this photo on my blog.  How did my ironing board surface become so absolutely tacky and grungy?  The funny thing is you don't notice it slowly becoming uglier and uglier, until you look at it and it hits you like a ton of bricks!  You stand back and announce to your husband, "My ironing board is hideous. We will recover it this weekend"!!!
 So that is exactly what we did.  I bought this printed canvas fabric about six months ago for the ironing board.  So hubby and I got the tools out, and took the ironing board outside.  Took about half and hour to replace the cover.
We put new cotton batting under the cute fabric.  So very much better!!  We went one step further and bought new rubber guards for the legs, so she has new shoes too.  The frame got a good wipe down and now I am excited about my ironing board once again.  Isn't she lovely?


  1. Too cute for words! Great job!

  2. Well, it shows that you use your ironing board a lot! Mine doesn't get dragged out very often! Love the fabric.
