Today I realised that I have been awfully  lazy with my posting so I decided to repent:D

I had this really old Ironing board at home that I got from my mom.
It was really nice and sturdy once, but since it had its fortieth birthday I really tried to hide it from the guests because it looked awful.


After...Not a very good pic because My Cat tried to pose all the time but you can get an idea how it looks like.

Before...This is the thing for the sleeves...don't know what you call it in english... Tongue


I hear ya had an idea but it died of boredom...

Beautiful transformation. I have a metal ironing board that was a wedding present at my first wedding. Almost 40 years now. You can't buy them like that anymore, so I love your transformation. My cats love my ironing board, especially when the sun is shining in. I just have to remember to de-fur it on occasion.

I love the fabric on yours. mine is an extra wide industrial board I need to make a new cover for it. I didn' t realize the fabric I used for my last cover wasn't a 100% cotton, so it scorches, looks terrible.
