This pic is my ironing center. I'm fairly happy with it. Its works for me. Its just not pretty. The old dresser underneath houses my pattern collection and projects I've downloaded from the Internet. I've put 2 Rubbermaid tubs underneath my ironing surface so its at the right height for me. Being 5'8" everything is usually too short for me. The ironing surface itself I made. I found precut MDF at Home Depot, covered it with several layers of cheap cotton batting and then stapled on a layer of Muslin. I actually made 2 of them at the time, thinking I would lay them on a bed to iron large pieces of fabric. That didn't happen, lol. Now I use one of them as a design board where I take pictures of the garments I make.
