Six Unique Ways To Give New Life To An Old Ironing Board

Trendy table options
This might not sound like a viable option at first but an old ironing board can be adapted to make a cool laptop or PC table. Usually the undercarriage has several settings which allows you to adjust height, giving you a level of comfort that suits your sitting position. Cover the ironing board with some bright, durable material remnants and place your PC or laptop in the middle. You can use the tail ends for other accessories like pen and pencil holders, mouse and mat, or special lighting fixtures. These home-made desks have an added advantage of not being cumbersome and bulky and they can be quickly moved from one room to another depending on functionality. Experiment with different fabrics and lighting; drape a throw over the ironing board so the legs can't be seen. Then add a soft lampshade to bring a relaxed atmosphere into the bedroom.

Pegboard/hold all
The underbelly of an old ironing board has specific features that can be utilized in the most remarkable ways. Many old ironing boards have a mesh or wire surface which makes it perfect for hanging tools or household items. You can use it for storing those pesky objects that you can never find when you need them; scissors, keys, stationary goods, kitchen utensils, art supplies and other personal effects. Other old ironing boards have built-in holes, making it a perfect pegboard that can be used to keep your precious arts and crafts tools protected and in one place so you can access them whenever you want.

Dress it with spools of thread and colourful balls of wool. Hang paintbrushes and palettes, or simply use it as a cool noticeboard where you can pin correspondence and important documentation. You can also add detachable compartments for smaller items.
