I found a new ironing board cover the other day at TJMaxx(I love that place!) and I realized my ugly ironing board was just not going to get prettier with just a new cover.
It sits out all the time and I decided if I am doomed to have to look at it all the time why not spruce it up? So I was bored today and the weather was cooperative so I got to work on it. This could not be easier. Flat black spray paint, several coats to make it have the wrought iron look and then hammered copper spray paint just lightly sprayed and scattered. I had some trouble with the copper spray getting too heavy in spots so I just lightly sprayed the black over that and it turned out great.
