Yesterday when I was in town, I stopped at our “used” store. I have been needing a new ironing board and was excited to see that they had several ranging in price from $1-$6. I started checking them out, and the cheapskate that I am of course started with the $1 one. Well it didn’t have a cover so I quickly moved on.
The last one…the $6 one….was EXTREMELY sturdy. I set it up and noticed it even had a lever. It was an adjustment lever so I could adjust the height of the ironing board without having to flip it over. The cover was in decent shape and it was VERY heavy compared to the others. I “broke the bank” and bought it.
When I got home, I decided that the cover from my old ironing board was in better shape so as I was changing the cover I noticed another lever underneath. I pulled the lever and the ironing board went from having a narrow tapered end to having a wide squared end. I was so in awe!! I’ve been ironing on junkie ironing boards my entire life….this was a Cadillac.
Who knew six dollar ironing board could thrill a person?! I guess that just goes to show what a simple girl I am. I went to the internet to see if I could find any information about the ironing board. It is a Rid-Jid brand. I found this ad and discovered that you can sit and iron without banging up your knees…LOVE IT!
Mine seems to be a newer version as it doesn’t have the thin metal pieces the one in the ad has. I was oggling and awe-ing over it SO much that my daughter grabbed her video camera and captured me.
Now for my dilemma….Where can I find an ironing board cover that will expand at the end so it can convert to a square end? Any ideas would be helpful.
