Eye Sore

This 14 year old ironing board is such an eye sore. But it still does its job. so I sprayed the legs black, turned it upside down and hot glued the fabric around it. I hope it will stay. I was so excited when my hubby came home and said EXACTLY what I predicted him to say. In a nice voice,"Did we really need a new ironing board?"
I just jumped up and down laughing and told him I recovered it. It probably cost around $5. I think a new cover to buy is around 19.99.

There you have it, I don't mind ironing nearly so much. I decided since I've been doing so much sewing that it would be worth my time (15 minutes) to recover it.

This is great! I should do this to mine...I accidentally ironed some of that sticky iron on paper onto mine and now there is a whole section that I have to avoid. =)
