    My "redecorated" pressing station

    I had this small dresser that was a changing table back when my girls were babies (they're 22 and 17 now!) - I'd been using it for storage but now decided to convert it with a "big-board" type top into a pressing station. I covered the top with batting and fabric and decided that the drawer fronts needed sprucing up as well so bought coordinating fabric and am covering the drawers. Only the top three left to go.

    No picture, but that does sound like a great idea. Are you getting snow today? We are.

    No snow by us - sunny and about 40 degrees (my kind of winter!). Can't figure out how to post the picture..... I liked the "old" board........you know what they say about old dogs/new tricks............that's me!

    Would love to see a picture. Have heard that baby changing tables can be made into pressing and cutting areas for sewing rooms

    love the look, I think I'd leave the top three drawers as is... I love the contrast of brown with the browns in the top/board covering.... just MHO....
    I have thought about covering a piece, but I feared it would be difficult to keep clean.. did u use anything such as Scotchguard on the fabric drawer fronts????
