The extension built of wood fits securely over your existing ironing board. According to the designer, Diana Beaubien of Pleasant Valley Creations, the weight of it will stabilize an ironing board that’s a bit wobbly. Plus, you can remove it easily and store it should you need to do so.
To make this you’ll need some experience with a drill, screwdriver and staple gun. A lumberyard or home supply store, like Lowe’s or Home Depot, will cut the wood to size for you.
The pattern also includes instructions for a padded cover.
The finished board is 22″ x 60″ but you can easily adjust the size to fit your needs.
You may want to cover your board with that gray ironing board fabric. You can purchase Therma-Flec Heat Resistant Cloth Silver Fabric by the yard here.
