Remember my ironing/folding table?
Well, after 5 years the floral fabric
was not looking so nice--some brown stains, from
the ironing I guess?--and so I decided
yesterday to recover it.
I gathered my tools and some of my favorite fabric,
blue striped ticking which I always try
to keep on hand...
I used pliers to remove the staples holding on
the old fabric;
the three layers of old wool blanket
underneath were holding up fine...
After trimming the ticking fabric to fit,
I stapled it on under the lip of the table top...
And here it is,
...and looking fresh and clean again.
Now I suppose I have to finish
that pile of ironing which I have been
putting off for some reason...
