|Version 1.0 basic ironing board (and studio too--oh my goodness!)|
|Version 2.0 ironing board--same legs but supersized ironing surface|
|Version 3.0 ironing board--new wooden legs but still quite a bit of wobble|
|Kitchen cart base from IKEA|
Plus I realized there was quite a bit of space below that might be better used with shelving or baskets. So off to IKEA we went--originally for a 2 foot square kitchen cart to affix the ironing top. But somehow we wrote down the wrong aisle/space and came home with a larger than expected kitchen cart...which greatly worked to my favor with all the extra shelving and drawers for stowing away supplies.
|Reupholsterng and framing the surface|
And the old black and white interior design fabric was getting stained and releasing fumes which were probably toxic. So I purchased some Therma Flec heat resistant fabric to reupholster the ironing surface. And Doug attached several wooden slats so I could simply set the ironing board on top of the cart and easily remove it if needed.
|Easy on and easy off with some shelf liner to protect the cart's surface|
|Version 4.0-Sturdy and plenty of storage for my ironing and fabric supplies|
