    I ALMOST bought something very similar to this from Ikea, but didn't want to spend the money.

    Well, today at my favorite thrift store, there was one just like it for $15!! It has a little door which have three folding chairs in it! lol

    Yay!!!! A cutting table for meeeee!!!! Also found a Rowenta iron for $5, but it totally leaks water. @@ Bummer that, but oh well. Can't win em all!!

    That is a super find, I had one just like it but one of the table flaps got damaged but the quality was so good that when I moved I took it with me and a handyman made a super work unit for me in my kitchen, well done on your find, bummer on the iron but you can't win them all I suppose :lol:

    I would take those chairs out and put my rotary mats in there when I am not using them. The Rowenta, don't put water in it, but use a spray bottle instead, the heat and weight of the iron is worth that.

    wOW! Great find! Agree with jdiane318, don't put water in the iron. Keep it for your "pressing"!

    My thrift shops are always so expensive, I might as well buy new!! :(

    I was thinking the same thing, especially about using the iron with no water. Great finds!

    Rowenta irons leak. I don't water in mind. When it dies no more Rowenta irons.

    Wonderful table; love it. If the iron works otherwise you don't need to use steam. I don't steam when I piece.

    Cool table.
    At least with the iron you have an excuse for the iron leaking you bought it used. I just bought one from WalMart and it leaks like a colander.

    What a great find!!! Congratulations, now go enjoy that marvelous find. And a rowenta, even if it leaks, another great find for the price you paid.
