Ever look at something and in your mind you can see it as something else? That is called creativity, a vision or maybe even a little crazy but it makes you a creative, FUN kind of crazy!!!! At the thrift store one day, I saw this ironing board.
I made a fun and colorful bandana wreath for the summer and I loved how easy it was to make and how I love decorating for fall, but I rarely decorate my porch. I wanted to change that up this year, so
But mostly, I was sold on having such a unique piece in my home. The ironing board is surprisingly sturdy. I was able to place all my living room books on it plus a few plants.
Dimension LxWxH : cm x 43cm x cm. Product Categories : LaundryIroning Board. This is a super large size ironing board for heavy usage. The board is made of full metallic mesh thicker than normal.
Do you remember the vintage ironing board I picked up last month? My personal limit when I thrift. I had no idea what I was going to do with it.
It may seem obvious that ironing has to be done on a flat surface, but there have been exceptions. Chinese pan irons were sometimes used on cloth stretched in mid air between two people. Ancestors of the ironing board include, in the West, the whalebone smoothing boards buried with Viking ladies, and in the East, the stone slabs used with Korean ironing sticks.
This time, we transformed an antique wooden ironing board into a console table with storage. I used to have him build stuff for me, like the washer-dryer pedestals in our laundry room. Mom decided she wanted to use the ironing board as a table between two chairs in their living room. Since the old wooden ironing board was pretty wobbly, we needed to stabilize it.
This made it unable to stand without wobbling and called for an immediate replacement. Every now and then I take the cover off and apply Old English furniture oil to it. I did this recently and took some pics while waiting for the oil to finish penetrating.
