Ironing Boards


I have found that old toy ironing boards make the perfect end tables in our family room. The child size ironing board is the exact length to fit next to a chair or sofa. The big ironing board I found for $15.00, I use it as a table behind the sofa to hold a lamp and books. Old ironing boards are usually priced quite low so pick up a few!

I used one as a bar for a party. Worked great. The child's ironing board would look good as a center piece for the dining room table.
I love the tree sculptor in your livingroom! It is wonderful. Makes the whole room. Details, details, please. thanks, PJ

Those ironing boards are great. Much better to use them for a table than to actually iron on them! LOL!!

I have a weakness for them, too!! My three year old would never part with hers...I found a tiny vintage yellow iron to go with her board. My mother and I collect the full size ones and use them for entertaining...instant sidebar. You have an enviable collection...of everything, actually! :)
