Looks great, need to try and find a spot for one in my sewing spot.


A win-win!! Congratulations on your new ironing surface/storage area. And new iron! What a weekend! (Only a quilter or sewing could understand, I guess). I hope you have many fun hours in your quilting studio this week!

Looks good!


So...liking this project and might copy your idea...or Thelma's. Now, off to Lowes later for the board and shelving ;)) Like your ironing space!

THat looks great. Very good use of space too!



It looks great and I love the idea! Perhaps I would make a second cover for the station which can be replaced since you nailed the one you have now in place.

My thanks to you and Thelma for a brilliant idea. I was a little sad when I saw how tall the shelving ended up, but cutting it down is something I could work with. Wishing you much happy pressing!

great job. Glad your husband helped, mine did not. I also have used these for years. I have a Big Board on top of three shelves with casters. Love it. Need to recover it since I do a lot of will love this.........looks great and storage, what else? Keep up the good work......gloria g. Wellborn, FL


I have that same shelving unit! Must ponder if I have the floor space to try this. I know I don't, but maybe I could rearrange things?

Great collaboration with the hubs! Mine would do the same were I lucky enough to have space to put such a station! I recognize that cover fabric, an older April Cornell print I used as a backing for a favorite quilt.


I ❤️ your ironing station!! What a great matter whose it was! I may shamelessly copy you & add one to my sewing room! And, Walmart irons are very free-ing of any guilt when buying a new one! I don't care what brand as long as they meet my criteria of super hot & super steamy!

Stellar!! I have one that SH made for me several years ago and I love it. If you don't mind bending over, the floor space under your ironing station is handy for flatter storage!

Looks great ! Enjoy !


So jelly! I need to go make one now too, just have to figure out the hacksaw 😂


What a great pressing station! I'm currently using the top of an old sewing cabinet with a 10 x 14 pressing surface. I would love to have that much room to work.
