    MaryAnnMc,

    You could place clocks under it to make it higher.

    Since I posted this picture my husband cut a piece of hardboard to the exact size of my cutting board so I can use it on top of the ironing board. It isn't fastened down so I can lift it off when I need to.

    You could put risers under your cutting table Like I did, works great.

    That's ingenious!
    No the iron won't be wobbled off that table and it's multi-tasking!

    What a GREAT idea. I would never have thought of it. Lucky you. You could probably use the bed risers to raise the hutch to the correct height.

    great idea. In fact I have just used the same idea only for a television stand. I am going to fix the drawers to have drop down fronts to put the dvd player in and the rest of the drawers will be for the dvd's.. I love mine yours looks great too.

    Very nice I'm also going to be updating my ironing board. I don't have a cat to knock it over but my big board is making my current ironing board a bit unsteady... I have been on the lookout for a similar piece of furniture to convert...

    Very nice - and I agree - storage underneath is a wonderful thing!

    Love that idea! My sewing room seems to get smaller all the time! This would definitely be one idea worth trying. Thanks!

    what a great Iron/storage idea!! If I didn't love my Moms old wood ironing board so much I would do this too!

    I know about the cats knocking things over. However, I think this is too inviting for them to sleep on. I can't win.

    Fantastic more room for fabric as well as ironing. Is it also the right height to put a cutting mat on as well
