Ironing Board Tray
Welcome to another Tuesday of SEW Organized craft room ideas!
When it’s garage sale season I usual spend my Saturdays, well more like Thursday-Saturday, at garage sales. I love a good bargain and there’s nothing like finding something old and turning it into something new.
I love how this ironing board is so much smaller than a regular ironing board, and much cuter! It’s cute enough to keep sitting out and small enough to put away and not take up a lot of space, I keep mine sitting out next to my sewing machine, It works as a handy little table while sewing, too.
Hot glue gun
- Measure the size of your table and add 1-1/2 inch to each side, so that will be a total of 6 extra inches plus the measurement of your table.
- Cut your fabric and batting with this measurement.
- Place the batting on top of the table and place the fabric over the batting. Making sure it’s nice and even.
- Using small wood nails tuck the batting and fabric underneath the tray and hammer in place.
This works best if you lay the tray down on the floor first. Like shown below. (no project is complete in my house without kitties)
- After you have hammered the fabric to the back side of the table, hot glue the edges to the bottom of the tray so the raw edges don’t hang down and show.
TIP: A reader said if you place a piece of heavy duty foil on the tray before adding the batting it will draw in the heat making it easier to iron out creases.
Sidenote: These kind of trays are so thick I would not recommend using a staple gun.
