Use Robe Hooks To Hang an Ironing Board
It used to drive me crazy when we would open the laundry room door and hear the ironing board bang against it. Not only was it annoying, it was tearing up the door. So how did we fix this problem and you can too? Mount 2 robe hooks to the wall to hang the ironing board on! Not only does it make your laundry room look classy, it also creates a designated space to store the ironing board.
