Over the weekend I began cleaning out and trying to get the home office/craft room organized. Everything was pretty much thrown in the room once the walls were painted and the new floors went down. It is not really functional for daily work that I need to get done (on the office side of things).
But, I also realized this would be a good time to update a few not so functional aspects on the craft side of things. I came to the conclusion that my lil 'ol table top ironing board is no longer going to cut it. It now simply functions as Baxter's new bed.
Once I get everything organized and Alan has time to build some shelves in the closet (soon to be sewing nook) I will be able to get back to work on quilting, etc. In order to make that happen I need a much larger, regular sized ironing board. Since I have turned this room's closet into an open sewing area, there's not much of any closed storage in this space, definitely not large enough for a full size ironing board, so I opted for a space saving door hung board.
It's the perfect solution for this space and I am looking forward to using it in the months to come to finish the quilts I started before my little nephews were born last fall. Maybe they will get a quilt for their first birthdays...hopefully. Better late than never right? I guess...
Since these door hung boards are notorious for bumping against the door when you open and close it (I remember the exact sound they make from when I was little). I cut a piece of 3m wall adhesive strip to fit on each bumper and they no longer bounce against the door. Thank goodness. Problem solved.
