Changing: Now, that's a good thing!




 It wasn't one of my original ideas -


baby changing table repurposed by marty mason
 
but I loved it enough to copy.  Several weeks ago I saw a picture of a baby's changing table that had been repurposed.  I put out the word to friends and family that while I wasn't expecting a baby in the house, I indeed needed a baby's changing table!
 
One good friend took me at my word and found this one.  It didn't sell at her church's rummage sale so she called me to see if I wanted to take it off their hands.  After donating to the youth mission fund, I hauled it home.  The cats gave it a good once over as did the huMAN of the house and all
declared that it wasn't in the best of shape
and
what was I thinking?
 
I persevered their verbal abuse and stayed with my vision of
 
transforming it  into my new ironing surface!
 
AFTER
 
the top roll bar was trimmed off
and
rolling casters were put on the four feet
and
 pullout drawer and shelves were made stable
and
 ply board cut, padded and covered and securely attached to the top

The perfect addition to my sewing/crafting studio where 
quilt patterns and ideas are stored in the drawer space
 rulers - all safely stored together within easy reach when needed on the first shelf
and
fabric bins holding projects ready for sewing on the bottom shelf
Man O Man - times, they are a changing!

  1. That is brilliant. I want one......guess I will be trawling the op shops - much better than a rickety ironing board. Have a great day. Sue

  3. Oh, wow!! This is a great idea!! I love all the storage space below!! I think I might make my top a bit larger as I love to use my ironing board as a design wall as well!!

    1. Yes, Kris, larger would be great. My space just wouldn't allow larger. Perhaps someday! The top is put on with an L-bracket, so if I win the lottery and acquire a big sewing room, I can just lift this top and enlarge.
