I do not like to see an ironing board standing in the corner.  And the "built-in" wall units are so very expensive!  I wanted something to hide the ironing board, fit in a budget, and MOST importantly fit in with the theme of my craft room.  So, I decided to do something totally different...a Victorian dress to cover the ironing board:

I purchased a dress and hat at the local Goodwill store, for less than $10.00.  Then, I re-purposed, recycled, re-did them into something that would hide my ironing board. Very little sewing, very low cost... I wish I had taken pictures of the before/after dress.  It was a throwback "party", or maybe even a bridesmaid dress, that had a straight bodice, gathered shoulder-to-tapered long sleeves; 3 ruffles at the bottom of the slightly above-the-knee hemline.  I added the lace,waistband, sleeve bands, and pearl buttons,  gathered the ruffles into a "bustle", poofed the sleeves, and Voila! 
Here are the pictures:

I would never have guessed it was an ironing board under there, excellent.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
