    My husband is getting tired of me hanging out in the dining room. For less than $200 he went to Lowe's yesterday and in the ready made cabinets found a sink unit. Got a piece of plywood cut to fit the top + a little extra for overhang and brought it home for me tonight. In 2.5 seconds I had it covered and moved in my room. I'm not going to mount the board so that I can change the cover as I get it dirty..and my daughter the artist~ is going to paint it. And then there's my room...I'm slowly getting there in the organized department....i think....

    The sign of a happy room..LOTS of projects going on at once!

    My flannel is so bare..I just moved it. And my frame is in Holding pattern for the moment...literally.

    I used two layers of thin cotton batting and a twin size flat sheet I had hanging around. Its the height that amazes me..its perfect for me. It sits away from the wall so as to not cover the vent on the floor and i have total access to the whole thing.

    it's not a mess...it's creativity flowing...lol. I love your idea for an ironing station. I think I want one like yours. What a nice size(little ironing boards just don't cut it anymore) and it would be nice to have it a little higher than a normal ironing board is. Congrats on your new station. Hope you enjoy ironing more.
