    New Iroing Table / Chest

    So my ironing table was a bit wobbly and it made me nervous. After seeing the pic's here using drawers I thought hmmm what about a changing table? So here it is, before and after. When we purchased it from Craig's list, it was in pretty bad shape. The bottom drawer was missing, still is, the top drawer was in pieces. No wheels. Pretty grim. But then look what my DH did with it, and it matches my entire sewing area now.

    COOL! We bought one a few weeks ago, and love it. I use mine for a cutting table, ironing at times, and storage galore. Mine is made different than yours. Been planning to put pic on but life has gotten out of control. Will try to put it on soon!

    Clever re-do! Fantastic use of an old piece. Your husband is a terrific craftsman.

    That is so cute. What a difference from what it started out as looking.The white paint really brightened it. Love the yellow daisy fabric. I made a big board for our quilting group and covered it with that fabric. Also made one for my "newly quilting" daughter and a sewing machine cover. It's such cheery fabric.
