Rustic Ironing Board

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Hope you are wearing your green today.  

Over Spring Break I had the chance to work on one of my projects.  My mom gave me an old ironing board that she has had since we were little.  I was on Pinterest and happen to see a craft done with one and thought it was perfect for my ironing board.

I created a Welcome sign for my front door.

I started out by sanding the board and then applied Rustoleum Kona Stain to the board.

Once that dried I printed out the lettering - one letter per page and I chalked the back of the letters and transferred them to the ironing board.

I then took a paint brush and Heirloom White paint and painted my letters onto the board.

The next day once the letters dried I sanded the ironing board and applied Rustoleum Weathered Grey Stain to antique the lettering.

Then I applied Polyurethane to seal the board.

I added a bow out of burlap and put it on my front porch!
