An ironing board can also be a handy table for kids
On any vacation, there will be afternoons when the children want to have some snacks and watch TV. To prevent them from spilling their drinks or creating disorder throughout the room, it’s easy to make a table with the ironing board and then place it in front of the TV.
Once they finish, the food containers can easily get thrown away, the “table” can be folded back up, and only one small area needs to be cleaned instead of the whole room. And the ironing board will wait patiently in the closet until its next shift, perhaps at dinner.
