Ironing Boards Get A Makeover

The topic of ironing can be controversial. It’s a love-hate thing: Some people love a crisp, starched look. Others prefer to go with gentle wrinkles and a bright smile. One objection to ironing is inconvenience. Lugging around an ironing board can be a buzz-kill, no matter how much you like crisp shirts.

Marco has a solution for that – a fold-out ironing board that doesn’t need to be taken out of the closet. Why? Because it’s IN the closet. Meant for walk-in closets, our fold-out ironing board is kept out of place. There’s no big, heavy board to trip over. Installed in a closet drawer, it rotates 180 degrees. It features seven pre-set positions. It’s also compact, fitting into a space that’s 24 inches wide x 14 inches deep and 7 inches high.

When expanded, it’s 37 1/2 inches long and 13 3/4 inches wide. That’s big enough to iron any shirt or pair of slacks. It’s especially convenient for touch-ups, like an unexpected crease in a jacket or skirt.

This closet accessory has an added bonus: there are no ball bearings or slides, like you’d find on a regular ironing board. This means that your clothing won’t come into contact with grease or become pinched in the legs of the ironing board. Included is a heat-resistant cover.

Whether you love to iron or press clothing only when you feel you have to, the fold-out ironing board offers a convenient, space-saving solution.

Marco Makeover: Custom Shutters for a Downtown Condo

If we break it down to its most basic elements, a window is a hole in a wall with a glass covering. That’s just plain ugly, so custom shutters can come to the rescue to add security, temperature control and beauty to the window. Dressing a window with shutters is our preferred way to make an attractive statement!

But, what if your wall is over 100 years old and is a non-standard shape and size? The side windows in this Old Market condominium space are curved on the left and right. Standard shutters wouldn’t do.

Marco was up to the task for this challenge because we make all of our shutters in our own factory. We began by making templates to custom-fit the windows. Then, we brought the templates back to the shop and fabricated the shutters. On the third trip, we took the shutters down to the Old Market condo and custom-fit them by sanding them on site. Our makeover for dressing a window with shutters was well on the way to completion.

Then, it was back to the shop, where we put on the final coats of finish. On the final trip we installed them for a perfect result!

No matter what window shape or size, Marco has the solution for the custom plantation shutters you need. These shutters were made of alderwood, but Marco works with many American hardwoods, such as walnut, maple, cherry, mahogany or oak. These are stained to match your decor. And, if you need painted shutters, we make those, too.
