This is my FIRST "Instructable" that I want to share with all my sewing and quilting enthusiast friends! I just recently got married and moved. The room I use as a sewing/quilting area is also used as a spare bedroom, so space is very limited and needs to be "neat". I was using a standard ironing board, which was large and awkward to navigate from sewing table, to around bed to the board to iron every seam on a quilt block as its prepared. I had saw on Pinterest pins made from a TV snack table...but alas I didn't want to break apart a set, and wanted a larger ironing place....So, with thought and seeing a bookcase that my new hubby had sawn down, I had a vision. Don't all DIY projects start with this crazy vision of a completed masterpiece? We had this bookcase that was very tall that he had cut down into a smaller bookcase to fit in our office. I quickly grabbed the measuring tape and measured the castaway part. It was 36" from floor to ceiling! PERFECT height!! (if yours isn't, just measure and recut!)
So, here is the beginning of my "masterpiece"! Its a sturdy particle board bookcase. You could also use an old dresser or table for the same purpose!
