I have a table that has legs that fold in and it folds in half. It is my space for pinning in our new and smaller place. I am going to take an old cotton mattress cover, quilt it with a canvas top and put heavy elastic around so that the table becomes my ironing board as well, for the larger pieces of pressing. The table has been in the middle of my already small bedroom for the last 2 days, so I am glad that it is folded away again. I've already tried out the matterss pad by itself and pinned 2 quilts, so I am feeling fairly effective right now.
