Ladder of quilts



It has been a while since I last showed you the ladder that my DH made for me.

It has been painted and a few quilts thrown on it just to give you an idea of how it turned out. This is not the space it will eventually find a home ….. I just wanted you to see it finished.
Now, this ladder was easy to make. No nails or staples or glue! Just primed and painted and that is what is holding this whole piece together …. just primer and paint in the grooves to keep the rungs in place! It is possible down the road that I may have to do some repairs; but we’ll see how long it lasts like this.
Enjoy!

great ladder -- I have a wood one in my garage that was really a ladder that I keep meaning to psand and paint and use, but haven't got to it yet. THe rungs feel a little narrow on it, but beggars can't be choosers :-)

I love the ladder. Hhmmm, I wonder if I could convince someone (like my son) to make one of those for me???

Your quilts are beautiful. My daughter bought me a bamboo ladder several years ago. I keep mine in my living room.

A ladder like this is something that is on my wish list.

Looks great! I would love something like that but not sure where I would put it.

"Just like that" you create a smile with this! It has such a good feeling.

What a great idea. Especially the no nails etc very ingenious.
You will have to show the quilts in full now. I am intrigued to see them what little bits I see look beautiful.

What a wonderful way to display your quilts. Right now, my quilts, not on display are laying over a chair. This would be a perfect way to display them in my familyroom. Thanks for the great idea.

What a great, great idea! You could get your husband to take orders! A little hard to ship one to Japan but I need one of those in my house! I'll drop a hint to my hubby!

OMGosh - I love the quilt ladder! I always wondered what I'd do if I actually complted more than a couple of quilts and this is the perfect solution.

Thanks for sharing!
