mini-ironing table

Another end of summer project! 

I was determined to get a few projects done before school started and within a few days I had them all done - ha! Kinda got on a roll!

My mom got me onto the idea of making a mini ironing table for my craft room. She made one first and I copied. I'm mildly creative, but I usually just steal ideas off other people {if you haven't noticed.}

I bought a plan tray table at Wal-mart for around $10.

Stapled on 2 layers of polyester batting & then covered and stapled it with an upholstery fabric. I had the batting and fabric leftover, so all I bought was the tray table. The hardest part was digging through all the junk in our garage to find the staple gun!! 

I even emailed Ryan at work to see if he knew where the item was that made staples go into things really fast and hard was and he had no idea what I was talking about - I didn't want to us the word "gun" in an email to a nuclear power plant! We eventually got it straight....right after I found it on my own!

I used to have a big ironing board up all the time and it just too up so much room! This is perfect!

I love how I can even slide it under my long table :)  

Thanks for the idea Mom! ;0)

Ok. This is a genius idea! And really adorable. I must admit I have craft room envy:)
