DIY Ironing Chair

From the archives of All things Ironing - Ironing chair.

Hard up for space and nowhere to do your ironing?

Here is a Do It Yourself solution - an inexpensive and practical high-back valet chair that unfolds to become a compact ironing board!

This humble pine ironing chair asks little in the way of space while providing two coat pegs, shoe storage and underside accommodations for cuff links and tie clips. And when the heat's on, the hinged bottom and back can be locked horizontally to take care of any "pressing engagements."

The denim upholstery fabric, backed with cotton underlay is tough enough to serve well in either capacity.
