My Re Purposed Wooden Ironing Board

In December I wrote about using an old wooden ironing board and turning it into a wall decoration and said I had another one that I was working on, well it is finally done.  I have this right inside my back door and just love it.

Wooden ironing board, old forks curled and bent for hooks and a basket to hold small items.

All I did to the board was to sand it down and use Min Wax Antiquing oil, added the fork hooks and added the basket.

Isn't she pretty.

The basket had handles but I cut them off.

Right now it has my chores jacket, my apron, bag on the left holds plastic bags and  basket has my gloves , earmuffs and any other thing I need to use outside.

Everything for this was FREE, Ron got the ironing board out of the scrap, forks from the scrap and the basket was in some stuff last week that someone did not take after the auction.
After auctions people go through their stuff and leave the stuff they don't want.  We do this with larger items but we usually bring the small  stuff home and go through it here.
