Transformation!

I did have a set of 4 of these t.v. trays...at one point in time...I believe I might have gotten them as a house warming present?!?!? Anyhoo...1 broke, how?!?! I can't remember...so there are 3 remaining, all of which are not in great shape as you can see from the specimen below...and for the most part, they live in the closet. So when I stumbled upon this tutorial over at Oh, Fransson! I was totally inspired...
BEFORE

AFTER

(Yes, I know there's a tree in my basement...and my pooch..."Mackie" supervised the activities!)

TA-DAH!! A new pressing board...

I used one layer of heat resistant batting and 3 layers of cotton batting...it'll be perfect to sit right beside me while sewing...especially for all those quilt blocks that have TONS of small pieces and require lots of pressing...therefore...more sewing and less 'up and down.' THANKS Oh, Fransson!

CHEERS!

Great idea! I have a set of those tables. They are still in good shape but when they are not...I know what to do with them :)
