I took an old wood door off of a cabinet and laid it on the floor, I placed my ironing board on it upside down (plate against the wood) and screwed wood slats into the door surrounding the ironing board on the two long sides and the pointed end. This leaves the right end open. Stand the ironing board up put the door on top and voila, you have an large ironing surface. The slats keep the top from moving around or falling off. Now make a cover and your good to go.
