BUT, that fabric... ugh. And, it turns out, really flammable. I scorched it the first time I turned the iron on. But otherwise, perfect.
So today, I took this mat I had bought, and disassembled it.
I did it while I watched British Bake Off. I'm pretty sure I will now think tea bread/muffins whenever I iron.
I took the resulting fabric and recovered the ironing board. Worked perfectly. The top drawer is a great place to store the iron. I'm quite enamored with my new ironing station!
Chili for dinner and baseball starting now.
