You've inspired me with a topic on this board! I finally created that ironing station that has been on my wish list forever. If you'd like to see how I did it, all the details are on my site Screaming Mimi's Sewing Room

Good idea! Too bad I can't use it in my little sewing room. I don't have anything to mount the board on.

I HAD to find out how you did this, so I went to your blog. Creatvie. I would not have thought to attach the ironing board to the dresser and have it swing out when you need it.

Honestly, it looks like it is floating on air and I wondered HOW you did that!

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.

Great idea, I have a board that folds into a drawer, and folds out to use....great idea, but I do not have a drawer in an appropriate spot
Maybe I should do a BIG clear out!!!!!!!!

That's an interesting way to set up your board. Very creative! And great idea for a topic. While I've sort of come up with a solution for my own space, I'd love to see what others have set up for inspiration!

My sewing space is also my bedroom, and I didn't know how I was going to deal with an ironing board. And then my roommate gave me a board that hangs on the back of a door. It's a tight fit, and the door has to be completely latched for the board to come down (my closet wall is opposite the door), but it works perfectly, and is super easy to fold down and up when I need it! A handy bookshelf beside the door is perfect for setting my iron on too. You can sort of see the set up here:

ETA: OKAY never mind. That picture was HUGE! You can see the photo here.
