Another Weekend find

This old ironing board, circa 1950's? Solid wood, And the legs I figured I would unscrew and take off immediately. Wrong.... they were riveted. so I had to ask how to get them off. My son told me to use my drill and drill them out. ok. It worked but was not easy. Then I sanded the front and back and now it is ready for a project. Any ideas what I am going to do with it???
Here is the back. Made in USA, and made to last.

  1. I found one just like it last year and I made a cover for it and am using it as an ironing board, but had thought of using it as a plant stand outside. Why did you take the legs off?

  2. I've seen these with a beautiful rosemalled painting standing next to a fireplace and also one made into a coffee table with glass on top and momentoes under the glass. Most anxious to see what you will do with it. Have fun!!
