    Oh, I wish I had room, for something like that!!! Hmmmmm . . . I wonder if just one bookcase, covered with plywood, would be a good ironing board. Maybe . . . .

    The table is awesome! Wish I had the space though, but I'll bookmark it just in case. Thanks!

    OOOOOOOOOOOOhhh-that would take up so much less space than the mess I have-using 2 saw horses with batted plywood for ironing and old outdoor table for sewing (SIGH) Someday I'll have the quintessential sewing room-

    I love it and it looks so much more sturdy then the table I use now from Joanns. The added storage space is a bonus. Thanks for sharing.

    When I redid my kitchen, I used the old cabinets to do the same thing. Gave me closed storage & drawers!

    What a great idea - I passed on a sewing table counter height for a small desk due to the cost ($75 vs $3,000 - I don't have cheap taste unfortunately) - however, this would be perfect. Glad I waited.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    Thank you tesspug for posting this. It is exactly what I want for my new quilting room. Just hope that size will fit. I have bookmarked that site. Once again thank you.
