    that is adorable but what I really want to see is the quilt on the wall behind it! Somewhere I have an old wodden ironing board.....wonder how hard it would be for dh to make it into something like this?

    The quilt on the wall was made from a bag of tiny flannel scraps that I bought at the thrift store for thirteen cents (marked down from 25 cents). Its large and very warm and soft. Wowee!

    Planning to take pictures of some of my quilts shortly. Just found out how to upload pictures.

    I figured it would eventually turn into an ironing board. Very clever.

    Ingenious ...
    saves space wood and the money to buy the utilities separately.
    Love knowing old times' solutions for every day life.

    That is so cool (dating myself there)! Do you have any idea who might have made it. It's a wonderful antique.

    Love it! The Amish have one called an "ironing board step stool", but they want over $300 for it! It is a cool find!
