I am still perusing the internet for some craftroom/sewing room ideas. I came across Pleasant-Home's site showing her studio. I saw her tabletop ironboard and realized that was exactly what I wanted for my peninsula. I am realizing while I am working at the peninsula I have little room if the full size ironboard is behind but infront of my counter area.
I thought it looked easy enough to make. I remembered we had a couple pieces of MDF leftover from my shelves, so I decided to use one of those. I gathered up some batting, fabric, MDF and off to the garage I went. (My neighbors must think I am weird using the air compressor at 6:45am).
I started by placing the batting down on a work surface and then laying the MDF ontop. I pulled the batting tight and stapled to the backside of the MDF. Then I flattened the fabric on the work surface and placed the MDF ontop. I pulled the fabric taut and stapled in place. Simple and easy to do.
Here is my tabletop ironboard:
