    Lightbulb Sharing my new ironing center

    I finally got this done! It's made similar to my cutting table. I made a base with wheels and put some of my jetmax cubes on it for storage. I finally got the trim on the bottom of both-it really looks a lot better with the painted trim. I'm keeping all of the stuff I use a lot to iron in one of the drawers (the rest are miscellaneous junk I need to go through-eventually I'm hoping to keep fat quarters that aren't in sets in them). The white thing is a hair dryer/curling iron holder that I had in my bathroom but our new bathroom counter isn't big enough for it. I have a power strip to plug in my iron and there's a jar of scraps plus a jug of distilled water in there, along with my spray bottle and magic sizing. I can also fit my iron in there when I'm not using it. I'm sure I'll move things around and add things as I go when I decide what I need there. The top is plywood that is painted (it's actually cut from my old craft room desk) and I put a layer of insulated batting on it, and then the twill fabric topper. I used a casing with elastic so I can remove it for washing if needed.

    Also the top is a "floating top" type of thing. It's not secured down but there's a frame of wood on it to keep it from sliding on the base.

    Nice job on your ironing table -- The only additional thing I would do is move it a little away from the wall so when you iron long pieces of fabric it can go behind the board. Love all your storage!

    It's on wheels so I can easily move it away when I need to. The wheels lock so wherever I want it, it will stay.
