Sometime last year my darling husband created a custom ironing board for me so it would be easier to iron out quilt tops. He replaced the top of my ironing board with a piece of 20"x56" OSB Board. (It looks like a piece of wood to me...but he said if you told your husband OSB Board he'd know what you are talking about...men! LOL!)
So here's what the little handy dandy board looked like yesterday...not so good.
(Sorry for the blurry picture...I was laughing too much, as my DH acted more like he was getting his mugshot taken instead being the "star" of my post!)
So after a little research and a visit to JoAnn's he stapled two layers of natural/cotton batting down. Then finished it off with two more layers of natural muslin.
One lady swore by this method for a "OSB" made ironing board.
Here it is renewed!
I thought of using a decorative cover, but often find myself using this as a mini design "wall" too...so went with the clean, simple look. Interested to see if the new layers will change the heat in my ironing? Interested to know if you have ever made an iroining board cover? If so, what you used...as if this doesn't improve my control of heat, I'll be looking for a plan B.
Today will find my busy repainting and recovering my studio chairs. Fun colors to come.
