Congratulations! you have scored a blanket ladder from rummaging through antique stores, building one from a DIY plan or purchased one from your favorite store.
A blanket ladder is not only for blankets, but many people have no idea the other really cool uses for these rustic pieces.
I found my blanket ladder a couple summers ago from a barn sale. Year made! The ladder is over 100 years old and was built using the same wood planks that were used build the barn itself....so much character, so much history! It truly is one of my favorite finds!
Yes, blanket ladders are the perfect conversation piece and totally do a great job displaying your blanket collections, Why not use them to organize and display your scarves? I have a few scarves that I wear ALL OF THE TIME....they are my "go to" additions to complete so many outfits!
Tie a few on each ladder rung and not only are they pretty, they are organized and easy to find.
I love this idea of having a blanket ladder near your door to hang a jacket from or a light backpack.
Of course, they make perfect sense to use in bathrooms and powder rooms to display towels.
If you are looking for a creative storage idea in your kitchen to organize pots and pans, why not add hanging hooks to the ladder rungs and have them all right there in view?
I would love to hear your creative ways to style your blanket ladder. Please feel free to leave them in the comments below, or tag me on Instagram.
