I built this at the Home Depot "Do it Herself" class last month. I have been trying to figure out something for a large ironing board (for yardage of fabric for quilting) for quite some time now. I decided this was PERFECT! I removed the top tray, and added a 2' X 4' craft board on top, covered it with insulbright and canvas and it's a perfect Ironging station!! I keep the ironing supplies underneath, and I have tons of extra storage space, it's WONDERFUL!
$35 (since I won the project from the free class, no cost on that material) spent $15 for the craft board, $20 on the Insulbright and I had the canvas material for the cover!
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
First, i removed the top tray (it would have been useless with the board on top). Then i screwed in the craft board to the side poles. (2 screws in each post) Then, I glued down the Insulbright (special batting for ironing on) and stapled that to the bottom. then put the canvas down on top and stapled that nice and tight.
