We have an ironing board very similar to this one from Target.  (I didn't choose it, DH picked it up on a whim years ago)


I have a small dream to hang it on a wall in our laundry area, but see those funny, bowl shaped feet?  I can't seem to find a commercial ironing board hanger that would fit it.


Does anyone have any great suggestions for me as to how I could hang it?  I'm fairly handy and will eventually figure it out, but I've found that seeking other opinions usually makes my projects easier and come out looking better!

Google hang all bracket (I'm not sure if I can post links to shops).  I think a hang all bracket would catch on the bowed feet, but it wouldn't hold it flat to the wall.

How about a small shelf for the bottom to stand on, then part way up have a couple of hooks and a bungee type strap to stop it falling away from the wall.
