So we bought the biggest one they had at Big W. Here you can see it with my old one:
The little one is still going to live in my sewing room. The big one will live in the laundry and be brought out when it's need (probably once a week). It will be wonderful for when I've pre-washed a length of fabric! The new one is 130cm long, so a 112cm wide piece of fabric will fit right across it in one go! Will also be a lot easier to iron quilt tops.
This is the first full sized ironing board I've owned since moving out on my own (nearly 15 years). I think very soon I will wonder how I ever lived without it!
