How to Make a Rustic DIY Quilt Ladder for Only $15

Create Pray Love | $15 Quilt Ladder

Hi everyone! Today I’m excited to show you how I made my very own customized DIYย Quilt Ladder for only $15.

Quilt ladders are a great way to add a rustic touch to your room while simultaneously showcasing your favorite quilts, blankets & throws.

And if you’re like me, you probably have a lot of blankets to choose from!

Here’s what my DIY Quilt Ladder looks like:

And honestly, it is FAR from being perfect. There are gaps between the wood & one of the slats is crooked.

But the wonderful thing about quilt ladders is that when they are full of quilts & blankets, you can’t see their imperfections.

Kind of like me when I pile under blankets on the couch with a cup of tea, right? I wish! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I was just looking for a solution to a gazillion blankets draped over the back of the couch. I think I’m going to attempt this. Thanks for the great idea!

      SO glad it could help you! I was struggling with the exact same thing. We have 9 blankets & quilts and didn’t have enough room to store them away or even keep them on the couch. Let me know if you have questions while you’re making it!
