Ironing board moved out of the laundry

dayenuJune 27, 2005

My husband added an in-wall ironing board center to my dressing room, which meant I finally had to reorganize, give away alot of stuff to good will and toss the irredeemables. This feels so good. Wonder how long it will stay neat.

The ironing board is one of my biggest problems (see the thread on shirts that need ironing). If I could have a dressing room w/ a drop-down ironing board, I would, in a flash. I keep trying to figure out how I coudl shoe-horn it in to my current space. I don't want to mount it on your beautiful mahogany-veneer doors, and all the wall space is covered w/ dressers or the bed, or door ways.

Good for you!

(how long it will stay neat? well, for a few weeks anyway--until you start outgrowing stuff, either physically or emotionally, or buy about 4 new things. With clothes, this is a constant process)

I remember in the olden days homes were built with ironing boards built in. They were usually in the kitchen behind a cabinet door. Don't ever see them anymore.

because irons were heated on the stove?

Because clothes were washed in the kitchen?

Because the kitchen was the woman's workroom?
