***** would be a great to do list for hubby to make *****

I saw these at the quilt shops for $70.00 each and this way you can make your own and use what fabric you want for the top of the ironing board and could match your sewing/quilting studios

Wow - what great ideas. I love the one used as a decorative piece against a wall. Might try this one. Thanks for the links. Much appreciated.

I work for Walmart and they throw signs away all the time.
One of the signs I brought home got cut down to size by DH.
I folded and old towel in half sewed the long sides put the sign inside and made a pretty removeable quilted cover for it and wah lah a strong, sturdy portable ironing board with a removeable washable cover.
I have to be thrifty because working for wally is not a high paying job.

I have used the cardboard forms fabric comes on wrapped with old towels/sheeting for a substitute board. Would transport easily for retreats or classes.
