It started with a can of beautiful aqua spray paint...
My ironing board makeover!
I found the perfect orange to go with it...
I was hoping to be able to use the old cover as a pattern, along with it's elastic.
It was evident that wouldn't work as soon as I took it apart because the elastic band was soo tight...it was beyond me how I could accomplish attaching it to a new fabric.
So I looked at a couple different tutorials, and when AmandaJean recovered hers last week, it pushed me over the edge...I had to commit to finish this!
I could handle this, surely...
Actually not really even close!
Believe it or not, I had my board up on the table, tracing around it etc etc.
It is so pitiful! It is just balanced on that board, barely hangin' on!
I see a trip to WalMart in my near future...for a new ironing board cover!On the bright side, I have a couple nice pieces of orange Lotta to put in a much more deserving project!
|could it be my subconcious self couldn't bear the thought of this fabric becoming all used up on the ironing board? hmmmm|
