DIY Blanket Ladder

This blanket ladder is so simple and such a quick project. Plus is adds a little bit of boho interest to your storage options, and who doesn’t love that?

So without further ado:


Two 1x3x6 pine boards

One 1 inch x 4feet dowel rod

2 inch screws

stain of your choice

Tools needed:

Saw- I used my fave table saw

Drill and bits

Sand paper

Step one:

Cut your 1x3s down to 5 feet using a 15degree angle so that the bottom of the ladder will sit flush with the floor. This isn't absolutely necessary and you can totally just cut it straight to 5ft, but it looks nicer and will sit better on the floor.

Cut your dowel rod down to 4 14in pieces- these will be your rungs.

Sand all pieces lightly.

Step 2:

Measure 20inches from the bottom of both legs and mark. This will be where your first rug goes.

Measure 12 inches up from that and mark. Do this 2 more times. There should be a place for 4 rungs and about 4 inches left over at the top of the ladder.

Step 3:

Drill a hole through the marks you made on both legs.

Drill a hole in the center of each side of your rung pieces.

Screw all rung pieces to one leg, then attach the second leg.

Step 4:

Stain and let dry!

I attached some little felt stickers that I had left over from my cabinets on the backs of the top of the legs so that it wouldn't scratch up the walls.

Enjoy your new blanket ladder!
