If you use a steam iron, I'd be concerned about warping the wood top beneath. Maybe occasionally, ironing on this hack would be okay.
put a layer of aluminum foil down before the padding and the cover and it will be fine...
That's a cool idea, and timely since I am going to be redoing my laundry/sewing room. But that table is $279 in Canada. That is one expensive ironing board! Maybe if they have one in the as-is...
love this -- multi-use and doesn't scream "ironing board!" . . . especially nice is it doens't need to be put away after every ironing task . . . would look nice painted too, great idea i'll keep in mind for myself
),Olö,)l),lHello, what a wonderful consept this is!I love to "hack" furniture as you call it, and have several IKEA items that has been made over more than once!I don`t get if this is a private or a commercial site!!Please leave a response on my blog, although it is not english.I`m quite bicontinental as they say!Brgds, M
love your website. TrentUtah Attorney
I might even be able to iron properly with one of these...!!
What a great idea!!!! Certainly given me food for thought!
Fantastic, I love it.
As a quilter, this is exactly what I need! Since we dont use steam when pressing quilts, ventilation is not an issue. Size and stability, are! Also the added storage is always useful.
Love this idea for my quilting room, but way to expensive in Canada ($289!) in my city. I will take this idea and "shop around" though. Thanx!
