Iron out some extra counterspace

This hip trick comes to us courtesy of David Lebovitz, my go-to ice cream and dessert recipes blogger/author. He posted a Hip Trick-laden blog post a couple weeks back, and this one stood out as tres HGGH. Grab your ironing board for a small-space solution to your abysmal or non-existent counterspace situation. I like to throw an oilcloth over the top to prevent spillage or crumbs from settling into the place where we straighten out our clean laundry.
