It was chilly on the prairie this morning! Once the sun was up and the kids were getting ready for school the feels like temperature read 43*! We had turned the furnace before heading to bed last night so in the night I was awakened to the smell of the furnace warming up for the first time of the season. Knowing that cooler weather was rolling in I wanted to geet my latest DIY project finished. We like to use a blanket in the evenings, we can have up to three blankets in use at one time. I have never had our blankets organized but really wanted a ladder to hang them on when not in use.
Hubby cut the lumber and assembled my ladder and I gave it a coat of dark Walnut stain.
I wanted the rungs of my ladder attached on top of the side rails, that looks more rustic and reminds me of old ladders going up to the hay loft in old barns. I love the imperfect finish of the deep, dark stain. Natural Oak or Early Americana are my usual go to wood finishs but I am loving the Dark Walnut stain on this piece!
Buffalo plaid blankets are perfect for fall and winter. The 2 red blankets and the printed blanket at the bottom were gifts, I made the black and white blanket. Now we are ready for the crisp nights fall will bring!! Now that the kids are back in school and baby girls has started Preschool I am hoping to get back into my hobbies!! Thanks for stopping by~
