My DH will not b happy, we were going to get it gone, lol but it will be a nice addition to my sewing room I am making in the basement and will have enough room for it too. I will sell my folding table and get more material now....oops. Will take pics and post when I do this......thanks, just love all the ideas and all on here....
    Sounds like that would work too. I bought my fabric tonight to cover the top. Now just got to refinish that old dresser. Had always wanted to use it in my craft room now it will have a perfect use.
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    You need to start making those and selling them. I would buy one! I am good at buying items that other quilters have made. I want to keep my money in the quilting family. I have a long dresser with a mirror. It's just sitting in my garage. Now I'm thinking about moving it into my sewing room and putting my ironing pad (it's one of those homemade rectangular ones) on it. But, if you decide to go into business with your design, I'll be the first to buy one. Honest! You could make a killing. It's so perfect. And if you don't have the desire to make them, maybe you know someone who works with wood and would like some extra money. Or you could sell the pattern even.

    Stunning. Beautiful. It's a total work of art..... and serves a purpose, too. It inspires me to work with a triple dresser for organizing my supplies.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words.
    I am in the process of making cabinets to go above the ironing center.
    Have to run some wiring for the lights, and an outlet for the iron.
    Hope to have it complete sometime next week.
