I admit to having a slight addiction to vintage ironing boards. I have 3 in my stash now so I'm always attempting to put them to work in different ways. They are so light and versatile!

    I still have that ironing board - and I'm still using it! Would love to trade it out for a lighter one (it's quite heavy), and use it as a plant shelf for my living room window. It would be quite a conversation piece!
