Description
An ordinary ironing board was modified so that it is now wall-mounted and hinged. The height of the ironing board when folded out is adapted to the user. An electric outlet for the iron is on the wall next to the ironing board. A metal chain holds the ironing board in place against the wall when it is not in use.
