Before and After


I have had a big mess all around my ironing board and I really do not like it. I see the big X under it as a big waste of space. I am for ever throwing bags or little boxes under it. 

Well I replaced the board.


So I got this Ikea shelving unit in Red. Love the colour. I then put a 20 by 60 inch board on top. Look at how good it looks. Works well too. I covered the board with felt and then cotton ducking. I have a few white bins from Ikea too. Two of them have yarn in them, One units is set aside for the iron board stuff, best press, spritzer and pressing cloth, that stuff.  
Also I have added a TV to my room. My mom gave me an extra one she had. Lucky me. 


  1. Very brave and well done! I really need to tackle the sewing messy area. I think I'll take a picture... but not sure I'll ever post it! Love the ironing table. I hate my ironing board - way too small. Maybe I'll ask Santa for one and see what my hubby can come up with!

  2. Looks great Cathy, I keep thinking shelves under my ironing board would be good but my ironing board sits on my treadle machine and I don't know where it would go.

  3. now all you need is a caterer and you will never have to leave your studio...EVER
