Ironing board moved out of the laundry

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.

RE: Ironing board moved out of the laundry

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.

but why would I want to iron in the kitchen? that's where I cook?

because irons were heated on the stove?

Because clothes were washed in the kitchen?

Because the kitchen was the woman's workroom?
