An ironing board (and boppy and crib, oh my!)

September 14, 2015

Have you read the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie? Because this is going to sound something like that.

If you put up pegboard in the laundry room, you’re going to need to re-cover the ironing board.


If you are going to recover the ironing board, you might as well also recover the stool.



If you have to order fabric to recover the ironing board and stool, you might as well get some fabric to sew a boppy cover.


If you sew a boppy cover, you might as well populate it.


Why the Artic Deco fabric? Because when people (strangers and loved ones alike) express their profound disappointment that you don’t know the gender and then angrily ask how you are going to decorate the nursery, you can say, “The nursery is narwhal and iceberg themed!” and they will be so confused that their disappointment with your personal decision will be replaced with a sense of wonder that narwhals and icebergs exist.

Is that the new minky fabric from Spoonflower? Yes and it is so soft! But working with it made a little bit of a fuzz-mess, depicted above.

What happened to the edge of your classic white Ikea crib? In a similar If-You-Give-a-Mouse-a-Cookie moment, this time pertaining to ordering items from Amazon, I ordered contact paper with a marble motif to cover the white ends of the crib. It peels off without any residue, which I know because I had to peel it off and realign it several times. Guess who is not a fan of the fake-marble look? Grisha! And maybe you too?


What are those weird looking letters above your bed? A story for another time!
