... it lived happily ever-after !

what can you do with an old wooden ironing board?
What can you do with an old wooden ironing board ?   
IRON clothes, of courses ...         

No WAY !!! 

so, what did I do ?   
I made a cutting board. 

  a Farmers' MARKET cutting board.
36" long and about 12" wide ... this sucker is heavy. 
Left one side plain and will likely add another sign.

 The three small knotholes add a little bit of charm.
(middle hole is where I removed a brad holding the legs on).
I added a little bit more charm with cut marks.
... oiled and waxed

... drilled a one-inch hole in the handle for hanging.

Now WHAT? 
... laid it on my dining table. 

... added bleached leaves and burlap pumpkins from the Dollar Tree. 
I painted some white and some jade green. 

... threw out a little candy corn.

... added white candles in an old Mason jar. 

... added place settings for French Onion Soup and
now we are ready for a nice Fall supper.  

... remove the decoration and use the board to sit the food on.

Happy Fall ...
Thanks for the visit.
I hope you will say hello.

  1. What a fantastic idea, Audrey! And it also makes such a cute centerpiece for a fall table. I actually love an old wooden ironing board too! Hope you are having a good week!

  2. As always Audrey you inspire me every time you create something fresh from something you had around. Of course I pinned your ironing board turned into an oversize bread board that makes a wonderful centre piece base.

  3. Such a wonderful idea and the cutting board is perfect.

  4. Good morning, Audrey. I love your new header - how cozy! What a great repurpose for the ironing board as well! I have my mother's wood one her dad made. Guess I won't cut that one up, ha! Really like your cutting board- it makes a great centerpiece on your table. Hope you are doing well.

  7. Hi Audrey!!!
    You've been on my mind, but I am not on the computer much these days. Hope you and B are doing well...would love to see you again sometime! Love that ironing board - I think I had a similar one and sold it in a garage sale. Should have kept it!

  8. Audrey, this is a great idea! I love how it turned out and what a great upcycle!
