There's Nothing Like A Party.......

to get me in the mood for fixing things up!!  I am joining the Where Bloggers Create Party that is being hosted by Karen who blogs at My Desert Cottage. The party starts Saturday the 14th of July. As I looked around my crafting room, I decided I needed to do something with the ironing board.

About six months again I installed a wall ironing board. It had white contact paper stuck to peeled it off, painted it and got out the modge podge.

Then I decided I needed to make a new ironing board cover.
I used the same vintage barkcloth to make the ironing board cover that I used to make chair covers for the crafting room.  You can read about it here

I'm looking forward to joining the party!!



  1. I love those type of ironing boards you have and I like the fabric you chose to cover it with. Love that vintage touch!

  2. Oh, I can't wait to see your whole room, I love to once a year snoop around peoples craft rooms! I have such a utilitarian room, not dreamy and not eye candy!


  3. oh, maybe I'll check out that site and join in the fun! love that bark cloth by the way!
    have a lovely weekend~

  4. Your iron center makeover turned out great! Love how you used the vintage pattern packaging; I've got a stash of my own and need a creative use for them:)


  5. I love the vintage patterns! They look super cute! I wish I could find some to have in my sewing room. Where did you find yours?

  6. So cute. I really need to find one of those. The bark cloth is yummy. Can't wait to see what it all looks like. A full day on the computer getting so many ideas..My husband will be thrilled...? Smiles..Renee
