tutorial to make an ironing board with a tv tray
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I did this exact thing for my retreat back in the fall. It was perfect!!!! I am right handed and sat with my right to the wall so I put the tray against the wall and my table and just had to spin to press it was fantastic!!! I have been using it by the TV upstairs when I am cutting my postage stamps in front of the tv.
Thanks for sharing!
craftybear: Thanks so much for the link to the TV tray ironing board. This is a great idea for me to use in our RV this summer.
Thank you CraftyBear! As usual you save the day! I have 2 of those tv trays one of which I'm going to put to use! The only thing I'm going to do differently is wrap it with aluminum foil. I saw how to make a large ironing board and they covered it with aluminum foil to stop the board from warping and I suspect that it will help reflect the heat back up to iron better! :)
TUFTS - What a great idea.

I have been using a big bath towel doubled and then put my June Taylor pressing board on top of it and just the right size to put on a tv tray!

I had a small tv tray to right of me and one to the back of me with my small cutting mat

My chair was on rollers and could just turn around (old piano stool that adjusts in height)
