For years a vintage wooden ironing board sat in the basement of my childhood home; last summer I dragged it upstairs into the dining room and repurposed it as a side table (because of its narrow profile, it fits perfectly in an awkward corner). Suddenly I’m obsessed with ironing boards as tables; here are some examples spotted recently:
