What makes this table so clever is the easy cover that protects the surface and provides a smooth area for pressing. It stays in place with elastic and can easily be removed to be washed. A layer of batting provides just enough “give” for a nice ironing surface.
Plus, a rectangular top works much better for quilt projects than the standard ironing board shape. And, you can customize the table by selecting a beautiful fabric that works well with your sewing room.
The table used for the tutorial doesn’t seem to be available but this one is very similar. A piece of plywood is laid over the top to protect the table’s surface from steam (Lowe’s and Home Depot will cut a piece to size). Adjustable legs make it easy to keep the table from wobbling. The size is about the same, too, at 39 3/8″ x 23 5/8 “.
The cover can be easily modified to fit any table top. Just follow the instructions in the tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson that is linked to below.
