The Ironing Board & Step Ladder Combo is a must-have for the laundry room.The Ironing Board & Step Ladder Combo combines an ironing board and stepladder, two essential household items -for the purpose of space saving and ease of access. It's a stowaway ironing board with the bonus of multi-purpose functions. It can be easily hung on a wall or door or placed flat against a wall. The extra weight on the back of the ironing board from the folded step ladder gives an advantage over traditional ironing boards because it allows the unit to sit vertically flat against the wall on the four rubber feet instead of leaning diagonally like traditional ironing boards. After ironing you just need to put it into the ladder position and start putting your laundry into your shelves. Very easy to use and to switch functions. Metal.
