No more dragging the big ol' ironing board out!
Not when you have your own personal ironing board already set up and ready to go with this great tutorial! I admit I have seen a picture or two floating around pintrest with a ironing board on top of a bookshelf. I thought to myself, eh, that can't be THAT hard to make. It really is not. I found a spare shelf in the shed that was from a leaning tower of pisa bookshelf that was dismantled and most of it thrown away. No repurposing for the wet and shredding walmart specialty cardboard backing of that sucker. I brought it in and cleaned it off.Fits a little bit large on each side of my existing small bookshelf but it worked in a pinch. I have a small 3 shelf bookcase sitting in my living area that holds my yarns and cross stitch items. It is tucked into a corner and is perfect to be an "Ironing Center". My supply list is ~ Spare shelf or length of board that fits mostly the top of your bookshelf batting (I used a piece of leftover quilt batting I had on hand) cotton quilters fabric about a yard roughly staple gun and staples Place your board onto the batting piece
