    Did you buy the ironing station from Victorian Trading Co? Do you love it? What is the height?

      Yes, the ironing station came from Victorian Trading Co. I do like it and it does give you a nice amount of storage space. I keep my batting and Polyfil behind the door and fabric in the baskets. The only negative that isn’t really a biggie is that the ironing surface is fairly soft. I use the Dritz craft iron and it’s not heavy enough to press well on a soft surface. If you use a heavier iron though it does just fine. I use a pressing sheet on the floral fabric as I don’t want it to get messed up with fusible webs. The height of the cabinet as it stands on carpet is 31″. I use it sitting down rather than standing up. Let me know if I can answer any other questions 🙂 .

    Thank you so very much! I had a gift certificate from my son and I have been looking at this for quite some time. I don’t have a “sewing room” so to speak. I sew in the living room, so not quite sure where I will put it, but I will figure it out. Is it well made? I figured I could order it and see and always send it back if I have to. Thank you for the info!

      Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. My computer has been acting up and isn’t quite right even now. As for the craftsmanship on the laundry station, yes, it is much better constructed than I expected it to be. It doesn’t wobble at all. Being the daughter of a carpenter I tend to be picky…OK, I tend to be very opinionated about the quality of workmanship and won’t accept ill constructed products. This station met all my expectations and then some. If you can find room for it I think you’ll enjoy it. All folded up it doesn’t take up very much room, but I keep mine extended, except for the leftmost portion of the ironing board. It sits to the left of the computer desk. My sewing machine is to the right of the computer desk so I have a horseshoe shaped sewing area. It’s small, but it works for me. Enjoy!
