Since this is called "The Quilt Rack", I'll show you a cheap and easy way to make a quilt rack to display all of your quilts (or the ones you will now be inspired to make!). After checking out the local antique stores for an old ladder and not wanting to pay $40 and up for one, I checked out one of my favorite stores - Home Depot. I was planning on making one myself but found this handy little number already done. It was only $7.59 and made for storage shelves. I was worried about the metal brackets but they turned out ok.
I spray painted the ladder and then sanded the edges to give it a little more rustic feel.

All done! How easy was that!?! You don't see the metal brackets at all and you can hang 4 quilts on it. It isn't very wide so it will fit in a corner or behind a chair. Send us pictures if you make one, ok? Now get busy!
