Ironing Board Cabinet

I hate to iron.  Seriously.   I avoid purchasing items that require ironing.   And if I do happen to  purchase something that I later discover it does require ironing, I won’t wear it because, let’s face it, once I do I will just have to wash it and iron it all over again.  It is not lost on me that my job allows me to wear shorts and a t-shirt most of the time.

All of that being said, on occasion, an iron and ironing board are required.   Since we moved into our house almost 6 years ago, our ironing board has lived in many random places around the house—none of which were actually convenient to the task.

When we redesigned our guest room, I decided that I was going to solve this problem once and for all.  The guest room is upstairs and near where one might discover that their clothing may need a touch-up. Additionally, traveling guests have their clothes jammed in a suitcase that -let’s be honest here—is not kind to cotton.

I decided to build a wall-mounted cabinet that would hold the ironing board, with a shelf above for the iron, steamer, and starch.  By putting a full-length mirror on the door to the cabinet, it becomes useful and non-intrusive.  We positioned it on the wall where the door opens, so the depth is hardly noticeable.

I’m so pleased with my new set-up that I might even consider ironing something.  Or at least sleep better knowing that hypothetically I could.
