    I am in the process of setting up my own craft space and have 3 wooden ironing boards just perfect for this treatment. My question is; what do you do with the original legs? The thought of tossing them leaves a bad taste in my mouth. What did you do with yours?

      Lucky you, Arlene! I’d love to have a designated craft space! I agree with you; I hate throwing away vintage parts. I usually keep them and eventually figure out some creative way to repurpose them. Otherwise I’ll see some cool idea and be mad I tossed them! Can’t say I’ve figured out any way to repurpose the legs yet…maybe a sofa table with 2 sets of them? Let me know if you come up with something! Have fun with your craft room!

  2. Now those are just about the coolest closet shelves I’ve seen in a long time! What a great idea 🙂 Besides the unique shelves, I love and am envious that you have a window and a lamp in your closet. I want what you’re having!

      You’re too funny, Marie! And yes, I love having natural light in a closet; think more new house builders should figure this out! And the lamp is great when hubs gets up early and I go to bed late; avoiding the overhead light is nice;)

  3. I’ve been looking for an old wooden ironing board and you found four when you were doing this closet. Great organization, too.

    1. Wish you were closer to MN, Sharon-they’ve always been plentiful up here. Maybe Northern ladies liked to iron more to keep warm…?

    Stopped by from the Funky Junk link party – what a wonderful idea to use these as shelves! Would look really cute in a laundry room, too! Your closet re-do turned out great!

    Love the ironing board shelves! What a great way to utilize their vintage awesomeness!

    1. Shelly,
      I was counting the other day, and I actually have 7 vintage ironing boards in my home…and none of them are used for ironing! Thanks for the comment!
