Blanket ladders are one of those things that we drool over in the pages of magazines. They are simple, but they add such a great element to any style room. They work for Farmhouse to Modern, Scandinavian to Boho. And, they are one of the hardest working accent pieces you can own. Not only do they look awesome, they offer you storage of towels, linens, and yes, blankets! Did you know you can easily make one yourself for a fraction of the cost you would find them at a furnishings accent store? In fact, a couple of these you can make for less than $15! DIY blanket ladders are one of the most satisfying projects you can make, because you will use them everyday. Oh, and did we mention? They are trendy and on point. And, they will take your boring room from… well, boring, to something special. Yep, a blanket ladder DIY project can do all that. Plus, you won’t have all your throws in a corner of the living room floor, courtesy of the kids, the dogs or the SO. Worth it right there? Ok, let’s get to the tutorials!

    My husband has offered to build me a blanket ladder a few times – we definitely need one, but it always falls down the priority list. This list of ideas has definitely renewed my interest! So many ideas I never would have thought of – especially loving the white and gold, and the wall hung one. Maybe I can make one myself instead of waiting for it to come up on the Honey Do list :)
