I have been meaning to recover my ironing board for quite some time. I seem to always press in the same area so my cover becomes very scorched and soon starts to rip.
Looking back, I last recovered my board in February of 2013 with this polka dot fabric. Three years of hard use really isn't that bad but when choosing fabric for the newest makeover, I had both a light and dark fabric that would work.
I decided to go with a dark fabric hoping the scorch marks would not show up so soon. I think it looks great but I admit, I have a harder time seeing things I lay on the board. I am hoping I will get used to it soon and I won't feel like I am constantly being reminded I am getting older!
Do you have a preference on the fabric you use for your ironing board? I hopefully will get another 3 years out of this fabric but I would love to know your thoughts!
