    It's wonderful! I hope to one day have a room big enough to keep a permanent pressing table.
    That is a great table!

    We bought the shelving unit at Ikea and turned it on it's side, bought a "craft board" and "L" brackets from Lowe's Hardware and got ironing board fabric at Pacific Fabrics.

    Assembled completely in about an hour.

    Is it moveable so that fabric can hang over the side by the wall?

    Looks great!

    It's about 3 inches from the wall and could be pulled out more as needed.

    Another idea for my dream sewing room when the kids move out and I can have a bigger sewing room. Only about 12 more years if I'm lucky. Of course I say that now, but I'll be crying when they really do leave the nest!

    IKEA here I come!

    How tall is it? Taller than a regular ironing board? I do get tired of hunching over and messing my back and shoulders up.

    I don't exactly know what craft board is, LOL. We went looking for a sheet of plywood to cut down but they were pretty rough and there would have been waste. Farther down the aisle there were these really nice boards with no knotholes that were the perfect size. Mine is 20 by 72 inches. The had bigger and smaller.

    I like to use the reflective fabric because it helps heat up the bottom side of whatever I'm ironing and it doesn't stick so bad to adhesives. I love the fabric from Bo-Nash but it doesn't come big enough.

    I sprayed the board with adhesive, stuck the batting to it, sprayed that layer with more adhesive and stuck another layer on. Then sprayed that and stuck the top fabric to it. Turned the whole thing over and stapled it around the edges. Creases smoothed out the first time I used it.

    I chose this one for it's height. We looked at some others that we would have needed to add feet to. This shelf is about 37 inches plus another inch for board and padding. Perfect for Jenni and I and we are both about 5'8".
