I decided to keep the nightstand in the room and use it to keep some of my sewing supplies in it - thread, trimming scissors, my quilting gloves, rotary cutter, etc. With the new arrangement I quickly realized that I needed a better system for pressing blocks during piecing. My ironing board on the other side of my sewing table and I felt like I spent most of my time jumping up to press a seam. After a quick trip to Home Depot, I had me a perfect sized piece of plywood that I covered with some extra batting and a scrap piece of upholstery fabric. Viola! A cheery little pressing board to give our old nightstand a new purpose. It worked out beautifully.
