We love this. Vintage ironing boards used as outdoor tables! Yes, they're a little narrow, but they're colorful and sturdy. We found this image from Flickr user One Take Movie, and apparently it comes from Bakesale Betty in Oakland, CA. (Anyone been there?)

Now that we think of it, ironing boards are really versatile. Because they're height adjustable, they'd work in a variety of settings — even indoors. We're thinking they'd make a great landing strip. Put a nice lamp on there and a small box to catch your miscellaneous items, and you're in business...

Anyone have any other ideas for old ironing boards?
