    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.

    What a great idea, so handy !!!!!!!!!!! a tv tray, awesome. My daughter is letting me use her oak desk, a flat top one, and it has a pull out drawer that is used for keyboards, i use that to iron on and the big drawer i use for my templets. The smaller drawer I use for scissors, etc.

    I made a "Big Board" with plywood (22" X 48"--should have made it 24" X 55"). It had guides under the board to keep it from moving. I covered it with a layer of 1. old wool blanket, 2. layer of flannel and topped it with a decorative fabric (that has a casing with elastic in it) The fabric matches the one that I made a window valance with, covers for my machines and a cover for my chair. I suppose you could put the reflective ironing board fabric on, but it is rather pricey. I made mine pretty cheaply.

    My very FAVORITE ironing board is one I bought from stencilnstitch.com. It is 7x14 and clamps to my sewing table with the long end hanging out from the table. It's GREAT for all those times you need to just press a seam before you sew the next piece. Take a look.
