I hate ironing. It's boring. And I get frustrated with it easily. So any little bit I can do to make this chore a bit less - chore-ish, is A-OK in my book.
This is my old ironing board cover:
Yeah, I know - ew. On top of that, what you can't really see is that other than being this boring, institutional grey-blue color, it's all stained up and doesn't stay put on the board either.
BUT! Here's my totally awesome, 100% groovy, $4.99, still in the package! (yes, can you believe it?) thrift store find:
Super cool, eh?!?
And here it is in all its awesomeness making my ironing board happy:
Hoooraaaayyyyy! Just look at those funky mushrooms!
Makes the whole ironing thing kinda fun now even. Ok, well, maybe not fun. But better. Much better.
I'm thinking of combining a couple of my favorite things ever (being thrifty and thrifty/vintage finds) and doing a regular post series kinda along this theme - "$5 (and under) thrift finds". Would anyone be willing to join in? It could be about clothes, crafty stuff, ironing board covers...anything you thrifted for around $5. You could link to your blog posts or just post your finds in the comments. Whaddya think?
