Description

It starts as a chair or stool; people have used it for centuries to sit kids at the kitchen table, to cut the families hair, a kitchen work table or as a bar stool. Use it as a step stool or chair without changing positions. Perhaps this is where the name "Onit" originated from as you can do so many different things on it. Flip it up and it becomes an ironing board, flip it on over and it becomes a step ladder.

The Ironing Board Chair is the perfect home accessory, even in the most upscale homes. It is ideal in the master suite to reach up to high shelves in the master closets and then to touch up wrinkles in clothes. Use it at the vanity to apply makeup or to fix the granddaughters hair without having to bend over.

Use it in the kitchen as an extra chair or bar stool. Then have a step ladder available to reach the tall cabinets. Use it as a plant stand, or even as a time out stool. It also makes the perfect kitchen work table especially when using grandmas’ clamp on apple peeler which, won’t clamp on to the newer granite counter tops. Truth be known many kids depended on it being their easy access to fresh baked cookies on the counter and then reaching up for a glass to top it off with milk.

It's a perfect item for RVs and motor coaches. In a very small space you will have a ready step stool to wash the windshield. Make it a ladder to work on canopies, have an extra bar stool or chair, then an ironing board for quick touch up of so called wrinkle free clothing. Even use it as an extra worktable for outdoor camping.

The Ironing-Board-Chair is even perfect for a small college dorm space.

The overall measurement at the base is 13-1/2” wide and 20” deep. The seat on the chair is 23” high; with a foot rest down 11” that is also 12” from the floor, the ironing board folds up to a comfortable 32-1/2” working height, and the ladder folds up to 38” tall with steps at 12” and 26” off the floor.

When homes were small and furniture was limited people looked for simple items that took little space but could be used for different purposes. The Ironing Board Chair fulfilled that need and over the years it has been resized but the basic design has been maintained.  A strong piano hinge keeps the folding part solid and strong.

Our Ironing Board Chair now ships in a smaller box at dimensional UPS rates. It is just too cost prohibitive to ship this size of chair fully assembled.

The new designed chair no longer uses the wooden knob covers (pictured top) on the sides for locking the chair into the various positions. The new chair will come with standard wing nuts. The new chair will also have a straight edge on the top step as pictured in all the other photos. The top will be assembled but the base will need to be assembled.

The top and sides are shipped fully assembled. Screw on the steps, the cross supports, the top and you are done. The Ironing Board is actually built fully assembled in an Amish shop and then each piece is carefully disassembled and numbered for the customer to screw back together following the number sequence using square head wood screws.

The Ironing Board Chair comes completely finished in your choice of natural oak, medium stained oak, or dark red stain oak. Select stain options using the drop down box.

Optional ironing board covers are also Amish handcrafted made from heavy cotton material with batting to keep the high heat away from the wooden top. Cover uses a simple draw string to snug the cover over and around the top edge. Color choices are white, blue, green, or burgundy.

Our Amish craftsman custom builds each Ironing Board Chair per order. 

Please expect a 3-4 week build out period before your chair is shipped.

International customers: We are sorry but the box size is still too large to ship USPS Priority Mail.
