My husband did more work on this project than I did, and I think that the results are absolutely marvelous. We purchased this antique ironing board/sleeve board for $10, then restored it. My husband cleaned the rust off the metal, then did several applications of linseed oil on the wood, which really brought out the color. I made new fabric covers for it, though I didn’t put too much time into it on account that I have other, more exciting projects to work on. The end result makes a nice addition to my ironing arsenal.
