Default Double duty Flea market find

After seeing posts of ironing stations, I've been on the hunt for a used baby changing table or something equivalent. While cruising the flea market, I came cross, what I think, was an old microwave stand. It's all wood & on rollers. Brought it home & had DH cut me a piece of wood for the top. I then upholstered it into an ironing board. But......I got an extra bonus out of the deal! There is a 2 1/2" lip on 3 sides. So, I took a piece of plexiglass & turned it into a light table too! Pretty ingenious, don't ya'll think? All this for $25 too!

Great job by you and your husband. Curious what kind of lights you used? (if you don't mind my asking)

The lights can be found just about anywhere. They're the ones that you push to turn on & off & can be used anywhere, as they are battery operated. I think I paid $7 for the set of 2.
