Blanket Ladder Shelves

Happy Monday!

Last week I mentioned I would post some of my favorite home decor items! One that I have had my eye on that I think is so different, and practical is the blanket ladder shelf. In my house we have sooo many throw blankets lying around, so I thought it would be perfect to add one of the babies to our living room. I created one on my own. I promise they are so simple, and look so cute in any room you desire.

What you will need: Luckily, I found an old wooden ladder in our backyard that we were no longer were using. I took in the ladder, cleaned it off and placed it kitty cornered in the area of the living room I thought it would look best.

Then, figure out how far up the ladder you would like to cut off in order to make it manageable for blankets to be reached and used. I  waited for my fiance to get home from work, I marked off where I wanted the ladder shelf to be cut, and he cut it with our circular table saw. We took off three steps off the ladder.

Next, bring the ladder up to your desired location and BAM you are done my friend.

Literally two steps!!

The end result was great, and I love how it turned out!!! It is so rustic+I feel so Joanna Gaines proud of myself right now. Such an easy DIY project that I promise anyone can do!

Check out how this baby came out, like I said it is so doable for any living room, office, bedroom or even bathroom space!

Below, I found some other ladder shelves that I wanted to share with you! I really have found that incorporating a rustic style into you’re home adds such a cool and inviting element. Hope you gather some inspiration on this Monday AM!

Have a great week! I will chat with you soon:)
