Not that!! Get your mind out of the gutter. I’m talking about a quickie project. I love Elizabeth Hartman. She’s so creative and fun and I just adore reading her blog. What I really love about her though, is how she makes my life easier!
I have trouble with ironing boards. I currently have two in my home. I hate both. The first one creaked and squeaked and as soon as I got to a certain place (usually where I needed a precise seam pressed or something) it would “pop” up or down and mess me up. I bought a second one and it’s brown and ugly and wouldn’t you know it, I melted something on the end and well, you get the idea.
I don’t like having them out because a) they’re ugly b) they take up space and c) I’m a piler. (Any horizontal surface deserves a pile, I don’t mean to do it and I de-pile at least once a week, but it is an unfortunate truth in my home.)
Enter Elizabeth Hartman’s genius. A while back (ok, a loooong while back), I saw her tutorial for a TV tray pressing table. Great idea! It’s small, cheap, unobtrusive ANNND it is NOT big enough to pile on! So, about two weeks ago, I marched myself down to Target and bought one of these.
A couple layers of batting, a layer of denim, my husband’s SUPER CRAZY stapler and in less than thirty minutes, viola!
Here it is all folded up and pile-less! Wish me luck-I’m hoping that this little guy will be a great addition to the Hody Handmade Family!!
