This is just a fast project. I’m not even sure I should call this a “project”.
Anyway, I bought this ironing board from Ikea a year ago. It is convenient, small (but big enough for me), and easily stored away when I don’t need it.
The problem was that it was very very thinly padded !!!
What do you all think of Ikea products? To me, beautiful designs, good to save spaces, and frankly unique, and it has it’s “class” of it’s own.
Here’s the big BUT.
BUT it is expensive (at least to me it is).
BUT its quality (wear and tear) is not that good for the price we pay. Most of the cupboards are made of chipboard :P, poor lamination, or pine wood that breaks easily. Well, I can go on and on, but I won’t.
Back to my ironing board.
Anyway, I wanted it more padded. So, out came the sponges (not ideal material for ironing board too I suppose, sponges melt when under direct heat from iron!). I figured, the 100% cotton fabric will protect from direct heat, and as long as I don’t leave the hot iron on the surface to too long… it’s gonna be OK!
I cut 2 pieces of the sponge. I want them really padded.
Put them all together (no glue, no strings..) on top of each other, and then cover back with the original fabric. One day, I will change the fabric to something cuter ;)). But this satisfy me for the time being.
