    Cool Ironing Board/Thread Organizer

    I told my husband I needed an ironing board and thread organizer, and this is what he came up with. I think you all can agree; he is, and it is, "The Bomb"! I can now iron all my quilt tops with ease and my threads are all labeled and dust free. I can't think of anything else a girl could ask for (well, maybe a new machine).

    That is awesome! What a great storage space. I love how everything can be put away.
    Happy Sewing

    I love this! Did your hubby build the cabinet, or did you buy this and then he created the rest? If you bought it, where did you get it? Very nice!!

    Wonderful job! I love everything about it! I also noticed the small cart on the end with your iron. That is great, too!

    Great idea. Wish I had the room for something like that but I'm now starting to get stuffed as it is. Need more thread racks so having to go with the pegboard method once again. Making my own with leftover pegboard and 1 x 2's. Had my neighbor cut a 3/8 groove down the 1 x 2's, sanded them down and started painting them this past Sunday but its been raining ever since so can't finish them as I'm working out of my rear garage. My thread company (Connecting Threads) has changed the shape of their spools so they no longer fit my rolling drawer.

    Tell you hubby "nice job" and he might want to draw up his plans to sell as he did a professional job from what I can see.
