When Gathered Random Junk Becomes an Entry Table


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!
All it took for my most recent creation was to marry one up with a like minded wood framed mirror for an instant entry table. But that's not all... wait till you see the illuminated minnow bucket night light, meat grinder

Loving all things galvanized, a meat grinder acts as a purse hanger.

    Lol, just saw your post today shortly after my 25yo daughter said "should I throw "this" out?" THIS being my great grandmothers wood ironing board. (I'm 56, so my ironing board was probabmy built in the late 1800's) I explained to her this is the only ironing board I have left, as the other 3 'new boards' were tossed after my fat & lazy cat jumped on them from the window sill and bent the front leg to the point it was unusable. Wish I had 2 more of these. (Quilting, Ironing & multi-purpose).
