Today's TV Tuesday post written by Kirsten Earl, TV Crafter and TV addict:
I like to believe that it's not just me who still has those hideous wooden folding TV tray tables from the college/just-out-of-college era. My husband and I now have an actual kitchen table to eat on, but I held onto the folding tables because they work well for setting up my sewing machine when I want to craft while I'm watching "LOST" or something. [You would think by now I would have some fabulous piece of furniture in my living room that morphs like a Transformer into a sewing station when I need it and disappears behind beautiful doors when I don't, but I have yet to discover such a thing. Or such a thing that would still allow me an unobstructed view of Ben Linus and the smoke monster.]
Most of the sewing I do is quilting, and quilting involves a lot of ironing, and dragging out an ironing board requires too much motivation sometimes. And if you're a quilter, you know that a lot of the things you have to iron are small, and numerous enough that you don't want to keep going from machine to ironing board and back. I decided if one of my tray tables were somehow to become a small handy ironing board, all would be right in my TV/craft-addict world.
The gallery below shows my process for the transformation -- I even made a pretty washable cover for it, and I'm very pleased with the results.
