Love projects like this one, part sewing, part painting. I think that’s why I dove head first into sewing. For the past however many years of being homeowners, we’ve been remodeling, now onto our second – and probably final – home. I am a huge fan of This Old House, have painted nearly every surface in our house (sometimes twice), am pretty confident using power tools, and I think I’m not too shabby with the wet saw.
We’ve spent long hours fixing up the house we live in, but now there’s only one or two smaller-ish projects left. So I find myself looking at older houses in town when I drive by thinking how cool it would be to fix that one up, oh wait, that one, no that one! I’ll probably never get to fix up another house, but that’s where you luck out, it’ll make me dive farther into the sewing realm…
And so you might not have noticed, but I’ve never shown my ironing board in my tutorials. There’s a reason for that:
So I had this fabric, no idea of what I was originally going to use it for, and some bias tape, and a can of spray paint.
One ugly ironing board, turned slightly more pleasing to the eye.
If you think it’s time for an ironing board overhaul check out these tutorials:
