Something out of nothing

DIY ironing board tutorial

Any old fabric
Any old wood
Mail packing (what we used)
Or any 'ol batting
Some elastic

Nail together pieces of wood totaling 10 in wide and 3 ft tall

Glue batting over wood

Make a little cover using fabric and elastic

(I simply laid the fabric over the form an cut around the it- leaving 4inch seam allowance all the way around)

...the end.

I love the sense of creating something from nothing or old otherwise unusable items

I love finding a need. And then fulfilling that need.

I love a creative mind that can do that.

I love my husband.

He sees something that's junk to me as useful items worthy to be something great.

That reminds me of Jesus.

He took something otherwise worthless, and created something beautiful and new.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2 COR. 5:17)
Remember today that you are a new creation...And smile :) because you've got something to smile about :)
