I wish this post was about how we did this amazing remodel in our laundry room...but it's not, sigh. Instead, I have this DIY Iron and Ironing board holder that improved this space by at least 11% and helped me clear some scrap wood.
I built the holder to hold the ironing board and the iron to easily keep everything in one place.
I used scrap 3/4" plywood and scrap 5/8 and 1 1/4 inch wood dowels. If you don't have any scrap then you can purchase 3/4 inch plywood or a 1 x 10 or 1 x 12. For the rail you can use a dowel, piece of wood, or thin piece of metal. For the iron board hooks, you could use a 2 x 2 or hooks, if you don't have a dowel.
Here is what my cuts looked like.
