Recovering an Ironing Board

This is just a sneak peek into my laundry room makeover. We're in a rented townhome nowadays, so we cannot do much to make things over, but I'm still trying to make it home. As a part of my makeover, I've been working on the laundry room and trying to spruce it up. As I've been working at it, I've been finding that the more I like the space, the more likely I'll be there, so this is an incentive to get the laundry room finished up, so I can love it.

Or so I try to tell myself and my husband.

Anyways, I recovered our ironing board as a part of the makeover, and to tell you the truth, it is ridiculously easy to do. You'll need less than one yard of fabric (for a half/sized ironing board) to do it, some cute (but thick) fabric and a staple gun.

Lay fabric flat on the ground and place ironing board over it. As you staple it in place, pull tightly to prevent wrinkles. Trim the edges of the fabric left over and staple as needs be. Then step back, ooh and ahh over your cute ironing board, and ignore the pile of clothes that need to be ironed. You deserve the break!


  1. How darling! I LOVE it! And so easy :) I can't wait to see the rest of your laundry room!

  2. I sooooo need to do this!
