This step by step tutorial of how to build a homemade blanket ladder quilt stand is a simple DIY project that not only organizes your favorite quilts but showcases their beauty. Do you have some precious quilts that you or someone you loved has made ? Most of us probably do and know how hard it is to put away our hard earned quilts away in a closet to be unseen. Especially during the cold months, we want them close at hand in case we get cold.
Granted, most of us will probably keep folding them and putting them away in this manner because we dislike the cluttered look of blankets and quilts draped over the couch. If your house is like mine, each one of our dogs take a quilt left on a couch as a sign that it was left there for them. A slight dusting of dog hair can be avoided by placing your quilt upon a quilt ladder rack.
If you check out the instructions below, you’ll find you can make your very own quilt stand for your living area. Just like a folded ladder, you can make this stand with just a few pieces of wood, some screws, and a few other odds and ends. It’s just a great addition to any room where you want to hang up your quilts and blankets and have them on hand when you need them, especially on those cooler nights.
Along with your materials, you’ll need a drill bit set, a plug cutter, and a router bit for your drill to get this project underway and completed in no time at all. The great thing about this quilt stand is that you can leave it natural for a rustic look or paint it to match your room’s décor. So if you want a new home for your used quilts, look no further than these instructions below.
