$15 Quilt Ladder

Create Pray Love | $15 Quilt Ladder

DIY Friday | Post #1

Hi everyone! Welcome to the official launch post of Create Pray Love! Don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest and Facebook, and also follow me on Instagram for behind-the-scenes sneak peeks of upcoming projects!

Today I’m excited to show you how I made my very own customized quilt ladder.

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’ll have a lot to choose from!

I love mine because it’s not too skinny and also not too chunky. I’m glad that I used 2x4s for the rungs! My favorite part about this design is that it only requires one power tool & a budget of $15. Download the full tutorial here on my Freebies page!

As you can see, mine is FAR from being perfect. There are gaps between the wood and one of the slats is crooked (the bottom one) when you look at it from above. But the wonderful thing about quilt ladders is that when they are full of quilts & blankets, you can’t see their imperfections.

Having it next to my sage green reading chair makes the space even more cozy.

    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!
