    It really looks wonderful and your idea to use baskets with holes is brilliant. I admit I have "out of sight out of mind" issues. I wish I had that much space! My sewing room is too small and to get to a back storage area I have to fold my ironing board away. Maybe someday...

    Brilliant! I have plans to do the same and have ironing top/pad already plus dresser, but had not thought of wheels...
    Great idea as they will bring up the height to make pressing easier!

    I'm with the others here...you need more WIP baskets!!

    I have done the same with a double dresser, minus wheels. I store my patterns, thread, tools, and misc in the six drawers. I plan to have shelves hung and a pegboard for rulers on the walls above it. One of the drawers also holds all of my receipts aka "the evidence". My best friend Deborah has strict instructions that should she get the call that something has happened to me, she is to immediately go and destroy the contents of that drawer!

    Thank you thank you thank you LoveMyMachines and Guitar Gramma!! Your ideas are brilliant and gave me an idea for solving my ironing issues. I hate having my board up because it was a cheap one to begin with and is already rickety. Now thanks to your ideas I am going to repurpose my microwave stand, a wire one on casters, and use Guitar Gramma's idea to stick an ironing surface onto it with command strips. My micro cart is about 34" high, which is a pretty good height for me. I can then move this smaller stand to whichever room I am using to sew and then back out of the way easily. This is gonna be great! Thanks again for making my day!

    I wanted a rolling ironing area. I didn't know they made them. I was at a friends and was bored. I started looking through their stack of catalogs and when I got to Fingerhut, this is what I found. I went home and ordered it online. They want you to make payments to them for the merchandise, but after a couple of times declining the payment plan I was able to purchase the ironing board and pay with my CC. I was amazed two days later I came home and there was a box the size the the ironing board assembled sitting at my front door. The only assembly I had to do was put the wheels on the bottom and insert the metal iron holder in the pre-drilled holes. I did have to put the cloth liners on the baskets.

    Here is what I got for $99.

    The rounded part of the ironing board can be lowered and that is how I keep it most of the time. You can also lower the iron rack if you want to store it.

    That gives me an idea. I am a garment sewer too. I might need to add a hinged board for sleeves!
    Or
    I could just find the handheld pressing helpers...
