It’s getting chilly here in Wisconsin, so I like to keep blankets all over the house so I can always have one in arm’s length. I’ve seen a few of blanket ladders online, but wanted to make mine a little different with exposed gold bolts and green painted reclaimed wood. The only hiccup, they don’t have either one of those at the hardware store. The solution: Spray paint! The nuts and bolts got a golden makeover with Krylon® ColorMaster™ Metallic in Gold and I found this pretty Green – Krylon ColorMaster Paint + Primer in Satin Italian Olive – to paint the reclaimed wood. During construction I ended up with a happy mistake – I cut the tall pieces too short, and instead of starting over I reattached the cut off pieces with hinges, then used that part to lay flat against the wall, and screw in hooks to hang plants and stabilize the ladder, Yay!
