What should I do with this ironing board?

Iron my clothes-yeah right! I don't iron! I don't want to use it to iron clothes anyway-I want to do something fun and creative with it. Does anyone have any fantastic ideas for me? My mother in law got rid of her old ironing board and knew that I would love the vintage look of it so she gave it to me. I absolutely love it! I am just not sure what I am going to do with it! I love the logo on it and it is such a sturdy board too. As old as it is, it still really glides easy when you open it up.
I could always just hang it in the laundry area (garage) as a decoration. Maybe it would inspire me to iron or do laundry-probably not though, I don't think there is much that could inspire me to do that!!

The stand has the cutest green paint and it is so shabby with a great patina!
Isn't the stand really neat? Way better than a moderin ironing board!

Now for those ideas of yours. I Googled "decorating ideas for old ironing boards" and didn't get much. The obvious thing is to use it as a table but I don't have room in my tiny little house for that. So if I can't come up with any other ideas, I will probably use it for a table outside when we have parties. If you have a fantastic idea, please let me know! I am really looking forward to what you have to say!
