But, give me an ironing board with character and I go nuts!
Yep. Got her at Streck Sales : )
Do you see all those notches in the legs for adjusting the height? I just love the clever design. She was only missing one piece.... the most important one, of course, but not to worry, we junkers are pretty good at improvising.
She came with lots of character too. It took me a loooooooong time to remove all those nails, but I didn't mind. After all, I fell in love with her at first sight!
I know I probably should've waited for the weather to warm up so I could work on her in the garage, but I just couldn't wait. I laid her out on the floor in the kitchen, much to the chagrin of the guys.
Oh well. They got over it as soon as the fumes cleared.
And now she has a new purpose in her life. Not exactly practical, but trust me, I will never use her for ironing!
While I was waiting for the stain to dry, I whipped out the sewing machine and made a little welcome banner to outfit her with. Gives her that "I belong here" look, don't you think?
It's a drumstick!
The boys got a little excited about that until I reminded them that they broke the other one.
I worked on a couple other things while I had the stain out... more about that later, but I am still working on my candles, trying to perfect them. I got tired of jars, so I decorated a couple of cans and called it "good".
And, since my little ironing board is so very Donna, I think I'll link her up over at Funky Junk's Saturday Night Special!
