I know I’m a little late with the Mother’s Day post, but I had to wait until after I gave my Mom her gift so I wouldn’t spoil the surprise!
My Mom has wanted a quilt ladder for awhile now. My sisters and I have kept an eye out for one, but we couldn’t find one we really liked for a reasonable price. A few months ago we were at my oldest sister’s house and they were getting rid of an old step ladder with metal hinges. I had Matt take a look at it to see if we could take it apart and use the side with rounded rungs to make the quilt ladder. It actually worked out pretty well. I didn’t take a picture of the whole ladder, but here it is after we took it apart:
Then I sanded it and used the black paint and finish we had left over from the table. I forgot to take a picture of just the ladder, but here is a picture of the ladder with a few of my Mom’s cozy and beautiful quilts.
She’s pretty talented, huh! The best part is that my Mom loved it! Her reaction was priceless! Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
