Anyone have a suggestion for an ironing table that is about 20-24 inches deep and 54-60 inches long with a cabinet underneath? I've been looking to replace my regular ironing board with something more attractive and functional. Nancy Zieman has something like that and it holds one of those big board ironing boards, but it seems overpriced. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Thx.

Mine is 31 deep and 72 long...go to the sewing spaces topic...I have recently posted the photo of my ironing center.. I purchased the Quick quilted fabric from Nancy's notions, I thus have a huge surface to iron.

Kitchen cabinets would work. Also a free standing kitchen island. Like these or something from Ikea.

Liz's idea is great. mine is built in. This system is far superior to an ironing board if you have the room. Mine doubles as a cutting area if I need it. I have a cutting mat then a June Taylor ironing board mat and then the Quick Quilted ironing fabric on top of that. If I need to use it as a cutting board I just fold the ironing mats and set aside.

Thank you all. Great suggestions. I've noticed that Ikea table, Sewliz and I really like it. And Threaddy's built-in looks so nice. In fact, her whole sewing room looks great.

One of the things I've wondered about when thinking of a flat rectangular ironing table is whether I would miss the pointed end on the regular ironing board. I use that for ironing shirts and let sections of the shirt hang off the edge to keep them from wrinkling. I also use the point in the way it was intended. How do you handle this without the pointed end?

Do you see I have a small ironing unit in the background. I must have that for sleeves and collars. In my ironing drawer I have hams and a point presser and clapper.

It's great to have space to keep that sleeve board at the back of your (beautiful) table. But I was really referring to the larger point offered by a regular size ironing board. I use that for many things, and I drape things over it while ironing, and I was wondering whether it would be hard to get used to not having that.

I have a 36x72" door that I put over a day bed. I love the size but I still keep a regular ironing board around for those shirts etc. The other thing I noticed about the built in is the fabric can't hang off the other side (I still use tablecloths) I'm pretty sure I could not manage that.

Since giving away my Grammy's wooden ironing board (too short for me), I started using my butcher block kitchen Island. Not cheap though. Have had it 15 yrs. Love the result of fabric that is ironed on wood.

I also keep a $20 Ikea ironing board in the closet for shirts and shorts, etc. They both have very different uses.
