    I was surprised yesterday to see a wide ironing board at Wal-Mart. I came home and measured, and I had room for it, so I bought it today. It is 18 inches wide by 49 inches long. Then there is a 6 1/2 metal addition to the length of the ironing board to sit your iron on. There is also a shelf type thing under the board, which I thought I wouldn't want, but now that I have it up, it looks pretty useful.

    I am one very pleased quilter. My sister has one of these, and I have looked online at them, but there was one at Wal-Mart...for $39. It fits in the same place my old ironing board did. Now I can't wait to iron, when normally I dread it!!

    Enjoy! I love my wide ironing board. I had my son make it for me and I covered it. I couldn't find one already made. Nice to know others can have one now too.

    When I visit my DBF in Upstate NY I don't have an ironing board. At first I was putting a towel on the dryer but didn't like it. Then I got smart! I open a large folding table, lay some batting on it and it works great. I always loved those wide ironing boards, too, but this works for me. At least until I have more money.

    I got one of those for christmas a few years ago :D it doesn't have the shelf or iron holder though... Was one of the best christmases from hubby ever -- I got my ironing board, and an electric griddle... sure beats the welder I got for my birthday one year :shock:

    I have wide board too. Love it, all except the metal shelf for the iron. My iron is too big for it.

    Oh, for those who already have this. Can I set my iron on that metal addition, even when it is hot? There is absolutely no instructions included.

    Craftybear just sent me the Wal-Mart site that has a picture of it.

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Whitney-De...-Board/7942561

    It is the one that says $39.97 (or some number close to that). I read the information there, and now I know I can rest my iron on it, even when it is hot. Not sure I will be able to let myself do that though...

    Hmmmm, that makes it look like it isn't available in the stores, but, I promise, I just bought mine at Wal-Mart today.

    FYI- when watching some quilting show the other day (? F&P) they suggested turning your ironing board so the wide end is where you uI'm in.sually press fabric. I never thought of it. Now when I want to iron a shirt (not often) I just turn it around so the pointed end is where I need it.
    Why didn't I ever think of that before?

    I do like the looks of the one from WM. Will have to look next time I'm in.

    I have one of these wide boards too. While it is really handy, in my case, it can be a pest at times (because of its size).
