Step by Step

*shout out to D (my hubs & probably how I’ll refer to him from here on out) for this stellar title*

Months ago, D & I acquired several free pallet boards that have been comfortably living in our storage shed. Recently, D decided to break them down in order to have the spare wood ready to be used, which got the wheels spinning in my lil noggin as to what my first reclaimed wood project could be. It didn’t take long for me to realize I could make my twinkie a blanket ladder! I have always loved blanket ladders and my twinkie’s style is the perfect blend of rustic farmhouse and vintage decor.

Once I surveyed the pieces, I gathered my selections and began sanding. Once I got all of the pieces smooth, I used some sage green spray paint that is able to be used on wood metal and several other surfaces. Thanks to my handy hubs, he and I tag teamed screwing in the brackets for each ladder rung and that was it!

I think the brackets could be left unpainted or be painted too, just depends on your style. We got our paint and brackets from Ace Hardware, but I know Home Depot has the same style of paint just in a different brand.

I have to say I’m really happy with the result and am excited to see it displayed at my twinkie’s house.

If you have done any really cool crafting or wood working recently please feel free to share with me! Also, does anyone have any ideas for what our next project should be since we have lots and lots of wood still ready and waiting to be used? πŸ™‚

  1. I am beyond grateful!!! I don’t deserve it, but I appreciate both yours and D’s generosity. Thank you, Boo! It is just gorgeous – better than any ladder that could be purchased. You are a powerhouse team. A dynamic duo. The Stylish Saving Sniders. πŸ˜‰
