My Little Ironing Table

Image result for ironing board

Yes, I have a normal size ironing board in my sewing room....

 my new ironing folding table that my husband helped me create.
It started as a plain wooden folding table
and I bought a portable ironing mat.
I cut off the iron rest and centered the wooden folding table on top of the mat.
Centering the table on top of the mat.
  Then using a tack cardboard strip (that is used in upholstery), my husband measured 4 strips the length of each side of the table.
This was my amazing husbands idea, to mark the placement of each tack on the other side of the cardboard strip. Then you know exactly where to hit with your hammer.
Before placing the ironing mat onto the side of the table, I sprayed the table with an adhesive spray.  Then I pressed the mat up. I trimmed the excess mat material away from the corners almost like a "V".
My husband hammered it in!
Add the strip to the opposite side, then the two shorter ends.

The finished
 ironing table. 

Look at how it just slides under my sewing counter next to my sewing machine.
