Back in the day, when we were dreaming about the house we would build "someday," we saw a Rev-a-Shelf fold out iron drawer and thought it was the coolest thing ever. At the time, we didn't have a laundry room, and our appointed ironer, Niels, had a permanent ironing board set up in our master bedroom. How romantic. So, the fold out iron went on our wish list.
For a variety of reasons, the board has been sitting in our laundry room for the last three months. I think it's safe to say we could have saved ourselves a few hundred (ouch!) bucks by using an old-fashioned ironing board because Niels hasn't ironed ONCE since we've moved in.
However, it is nice to have it out of the way when we don't need it, and maybe the cool factor will entice D to iron when his time comes.
Here is our newly installed fold out ironing board:
And at last, our finished laundry room!
