I finally broke down and made a new cover for my ironing board! It was in really bad shape. I had worn through the padding and was ironing some spots right to the metal.. nice, huh? I found this great tutorial and it was so easy! I bought a cover for a large ironing board (mine is a small one) at the thrift store, and used it as my fabric. It had the padding already so it was a 15 minute project with results that make me giddy, and for just $1!
