At the beginning of our marriage, my mother gave me her old ironing board.
I used it until just recently. My dear friend made me an ironing board cover that at least made it a little prettier. Still, it was the clunkiest thing ever. I thought about painting it turquoise and trying to make a cover for it myself. I still may try it as it has been through 3, yes THREE yard sales and has not sold! HAHA
When I finally decided I had used that thing long enough, I found this one at an antique store.
The cover I had on the old clunker fit this one perfectly.
I guess I went from vintage to antique :)
The little purple spray bottle holds my lavender water. I don't use starch. I just mist the clothes and iron. Between the fresh air and the lavender water, my laundry smells so good.
