Project Pinterest: Quilt Ladder

Most of the quilts I make are given away as gifts, but the few that I keep end up folded and stacked out of sight. I’ve been looking for some way to display my quilts and keep them handy… Enter Pinterest to the rescue!  I’ve collected quite a few pins of ladders like this:

And hey… if I ever need more shoe storage I suppose this is another idea!

Quilt Ladder

The Amateur Librarian // Quilt Ladder

I love the idea of a rustic ladder for quilt displays, and we happened to have an empty wall space out of direct sunlight, so the hunt began!
Turns out… old ladders are expensive!  I guess there are lots of other people who have caught the Pinterest bug.  But the more I thought about it, the less I wanted an actual antique ladder… too risky if it’s full of splinters or rust or lead paint.  So I started focusing on refurbished or new ladders made for display.  I couldn’t find any in local stores, so I turned to Etsy and eBay and found lots of cute options… but the shipping was pretty steep.  Finally I found Willow Island Primitives on Etsy with a variety of sizes, colors, and the best part – free shipping!

The ladder just arrived the other week and I absolutely love it!  I chose the “colonial blue” color and love how it blends right in with the colors of the quilts and other colors in the living room.

Once again… three cheers for Pinterest!
