When Kaily from Blue Sage Designs’ husband asked what she wanted for Christmas last year, the answer was simple – power tools!
Kaily knew she wanted to start building things and has been putting them to use almost daily.
One of the items she built for her home is this darling wood ladder with wire baskets. I love how the baskets make the ladder function like a shelf, yet the rungs are perfect for hanging blankets.
Would you believe the whole thing cost less than $20 WITH the baskets? LOVE!
Kaily was inspired by this Ladder with Wire Baskets available through A Cottage in the City.

I had he same problem and couldn't sacrifice my antique ladder. I put a 'stabilizing dowel' made of wood through a slot in the wire basket. The wood piece needs to be long enough to rest against the sides of the ladder and will lock it in place so no more swinging.

How did you attach the baskets to the ladder? My ladder rungs are round & the baskets keep swinging. Hope you can help.

Hi Shannon, It looks like the rungs are rectangular, not round, on Kaily's ladder. I would think they would hold the basket in place better than round rungs.
