Ironing Board Storage Pegboard


Well I've been trying to do this project for 2 months. Finally got a little time and space to get her done! This Ironing board was half off $3.99 at Goodwill, with broken legs. Who needs an ironing board anyway? Not me lol. I painted her with Shabby paint. Carefully Remove the legs. Paint then add some cute vinyl letters, stencil, or free hand. (I'm not that talented)
UPDATE: Somebody mentioned limited space and I got to thinking that this would work vertical with vertical lettering. Then limited space led me to think of a peg board and the S hooks fit! How awesome to have a space for stuff on an ironing board in your laundry. I can't wait to see one hanging like that on the back of a laundry door.
Old metal Ironing board..I don't iron :)
Painted and lettered.
Peg board hooks fit with a slight adjustment.
Workshop or Laundry storage. Oh and don't forget magnets will work too :) ShabbyPaints.com

    I love this idea! What hooks did you use? Regular pegboard hooks won't work.

      Lynn, not intrude but I went back to the beginning and she said she used reg pegboard hooks with a little adjustment. She also said she used S hooks. jc

    How do you remove the legs? They appear welded on to the top.

      Hi..most I've seen can be forced with a small pry bar. Send a picture if that doesn't work and I'll try and help.

    Great idea. Have an ironing board but no iron. LOL

    Iron decided to quit, never bought a new one. Hope the legs aren't too hard to get off.
