Repurposed Ironing Board from the Dump!

If you can't tell by now, I like finding treasures at the dump! They are FREE and 
they get to be recreated into something completely different and unique! 
I found this ironing board over the summer, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it!

It was a great color green to begin with, but I decided to update it with 
a little dry brushing. First I took the legs off, those went back to the dump :)

 I attached it to the wall with a screw, these hooks are meant for 
Christmas ornaments but they work perfectly for other things as well!

I found these at my favorite junk shop, they are meant to go on a peg board for tools, 
but I found two areas where I could attach them on here for tools!

I added some canning jars for paint brushes and sewing supplies.

It's magnetic too! This was a fortune I got, I thought it 
was perfect for me and this was the prefect place for it!
This could be used for just a memo board too.

I have this vintage metal funeral basket, which I love (25 cents at a yard sale)! 
It adds a little color and life.

My sewing table was originally right next to it and I am sure it will be again, 
we all need change once in awhile!


  1. Ok, Now! I love this idea.
    I ACTUALLY OWN one of the ironing boards and use it...ehem! when I iron.
    This is a cute idea.
