Good idea! I actually bought a small board and covered it so I can move it where I want. And for big stuff...I have an old decrepit buffet that we have used as a bureau, fish tank holder, etc. The top was ruined, beyond repair or refinishing. So I bought a piece of plywood to fit it, and covered it for a giant ironing board. So much easier to press fabric and quilts than on the regular ironing board. And, it has storage under it. :)
A woman at our monthly quilt retreat has a tv tray that her husban fixed up as a portable press board for her. Nice !
