Show & Tell: Ladder Quilt Rack

Hi There!

I had to share a quick project I did this weekend. I found two old wooden ladders on the side of the road a few weeks ago. I cleaned them up really good. I decided to use one for our living room blankets. I had to secure the ladder to the wall to avoid my daughter tipping it over (I used an eye bolt and a zip tie) I learned a lesson hard though; I don't own a ladder and decided to balance on the coffee table. Of course it tipped over, and I crashed down with drill in hand. I very quickly got a grapefruit size bruise on my leg. Man....the hazards of DIY.

I think it looks pretty good. It will look even better when I get into a house with a different color on the walls.





Oh and a fun piece of news, I finally got patio furniture!!!!!! I absolutely love it. It's nothing fancy, but it's so perfect for us. Makes me want to have a party.
