Ironing Board to Surf Board Table

Surfboard Table

It started as a vintage wooden ironing board.
When I saw it, I instantly knew what I was going to do with it.  
Gotta love those moments!

I used the jigsaw to give it a more surfboard shape...

I taped it off for the stringer detail and dry brushed with blue
The blue and white in this pic is the tape

I added white to the center stringer line and  
left the natural wood for the other two stringer lines.
I sealed it with paste wax..."waxing down my surfboard" you could say...yes, I went there

I think this would make a great sofa table at a beach house or even as extra serving space for a party

Basically, I suck at "staging" photos.  
But I actually did made an effort this time 
by getting a vase with some green stuff in it and lighting a candle. 
 I tried and well... you get the idea..."A" for effort and all that, right? :)

And the best part, if you are using for temporary serving space, it folds up!
