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 purse hanger... and more!
When Gathered Random Junk Becomes an Entry Table
This vintage ironing board and mirror were both the perfect size for a small table in the front entry.
Loving all things galvanized, a meat grinder acts as a purse hanger.
The minnow bucket was filled with white mini Christmas lights for a lovely nighttime glow. And the other bucket holds fall dried hydrangeas.
Tarnished silver dishes were layered to hold loose change, and a laundry line wheel holds a rusty old measuring cup in place for odd keys.
A vintage drain cover was the perfect spot for my Funky Junk cards to land.
And on the opposite wall, there's a big 'ol junk wall gallery to hang your coats! But that's a whole other story. :) On Hometalk at: http://www.hometalk.com/737450/organize-that-junk-by-hanging-it-up-with-your-coats

Lynn on Apr 15, 2017Lol, 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).
