DIY Chunky Blanket Ladder for Under $15

DIY Chunky Blanket Ladder

Hi Everyone, I apologize for my absence over the last while, life just got a bit crazy.  However, the good news is I am back and have a bunch of awesome builds that I have been working on for you to check out! So, expect a new project post every other Wednesday! To get started here is a quick and easy yet attractive piece for your home that will make it a bit more cozy. A Rustic Chunky Blanket Ladder for under $15. 

I built this just before Christmas since I was tired of having the excessive amount of blankets we have lying around, and being messed up daily by one of the dogs. It turned out great and at Christmas dinner my sister-in-law decided she wanted me to build her one too!

So have fun & Happy Building!

Step-by-Step

Cut the boards to size and give them a good sand. Sanding now will make it easier to finish once the Blanket Ladder has been built.

 

After you have sanded, drill 2 pocket holes on each end of the 2" x 6" @ 17" boards..

 

Attach the 2" x 6" pieces, using 2 1/2" pocket screws, to one of the 2" x 4" boards. Use the following measurements:

  1. The WRUNGS are angled so that the opposite corners are flush with opposite edges of the SIDES. This will make the WRUNGS at a 45 angle to the SIDES
  2. The top WRUNG is 3" away from the top of the SIDES 
  3. Each WRUNG is12" apart from eachother

 

Attach the other SIDE in the same way. 

 

Finish as desired using wood filler, stain & Polyurethane 

 

 

I hope you had fun will this build. Share your project and let me know how it went!
