ironing/folding table recover

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,
all finished...

...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...


  1. What a great job you did on this, it's so fresh and clean , I like it :-)

  6. I have never seen an ironing table before! what a great idea... I totally want one...maybe once I get a house with my dream laundary...for no all my apartment can fit is a flimsy folding ironing board!

  7. I might even enjoy ironing on this table!

  8. I love the idea of an ironing table. What a great thing to have. I have a "Big Board" and this is even better. So charming. I have been having a good time reading through your archives.
