Hey y'all! I told you yesterday that I was super busy marking items off my to-do list. Creating this nifty little ironing board was one of the projects I completed.
The idea all started with this picture on Pinterest. I was so excited because I do not have an ironing board. I just don't like that big, bulky thing taking up valuable space. :) I clicked on the photo to find a list of materials I needed, and guess what...No list! No description! No instructions! It was just a photo someone had found on Fliker! I was disappointed and the perfectionist in me nearly started having spasms, but I decided I would just wing it on my own and hope for the best.
These were the materials I used. I had one t.v. table, a piece of fabric that was tucked away in my craft supplies, a heavy duty stapler, a pair of scissors, and a roll of high loft polyester batting. Oh, and one very cute dog was supervising!
First, I laid out my fabric with the right side down and then placed the batting over it. I let the fabric leave a very small border. It just seemed like a good idea, but probably not a necessity. ;) heehee!
I then turned the table upside down on the layers of fabric leaving about a two inch boarder of fabric on two sides and
just trimmed, freehand, around the other two sides also leaving about a two inch border.
Lastly, I stapled around the edges, doing opposite sides at a time, and then trimmed the excess fabric. Viola!
Now I just need to find another project that will give me a reason to use the new ironing board! :) I guess I could go find something in a closet somewhere that needs to be ironed, but what fun is that?
Tomorrow, I'll be sharing my sad, little garden and a pen pals made easy idea that I also marked off my list yesterday. On Saturday look for a home school on the go idea that I worked on all in the same day as these other projects! Has the arrival of spring left you with a DIY itch? I would love to hear what you have been working on!
Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
