I have been looking for a new way to hang my stockings and came across these ladders all over Pinterest. Each one was completely different but it came down to the same thing….. rustic ladder with some hooks. I leaned on my hubby a bit for this project 🙂
Chris picked up some 1×4’s and 1×6’s at the store. We already had the dark stain at home. We determined the height and Chris played around with cutting the ends (to better lean against the wall) and he got to work!
The Kreg Jig is a great invest and way to hide all of the screws!
After the stain dried, he took some steel wool to it so distress is a bit.
We installed some hooks (smallest I could find at the store but honestly love how they look on it!)
I added some Christmas Garland to spurce it up for the holidays… wreath look familiar 🙂
I love how it turned out!!!
Also, a special thanks to Chris’ Aunt Cindy for making 3 out of the 4 stockings! Chris’ was made from his Nana. We love out homemade stockings!!
I plan on removing the garland after Christmas and using it to hang blankets pictures frames from it!
