Ironing Board in the Kitchen Trick Solved!

Remember George's post from January 1? The old 'Ironing Board in the Kitchen Trick'

One night last week we were cooking dinner together and he needed to get in the spice cabinet above my 'work space'.

We had recently put the ironing board down to use as pseudo counter space. As we realized the spice rack should be in a more convenient location, an "A-HA moment" occurred and we figured out where it should go!

George built new shelves (re-using old wood of course) in the ironing board wall cabinet space. Love it! I think it still preserves the charm, yet in a more utilitarian way for us.

p.s. Thanks for the great suggestions Kansas Kate! It does make a good work space.


  1. What did you do with the ironing board?!?

    Oh my gosh that was soooo long ago I can't even remember. But looking at the pics in the blog, it looks like I might have cut up the ironing board to make the shelving for the spice rack.

    Here's a link to an interesting history about Victorian ironing boards.
