How to Make a DIY Blanket Ladder


Cut two 6-foot pieces for the sides of your ladder and five 18-inch pieces for the rungs.


Next, you’ll want to angle the bottom of the 6-foot sections to 10°. You need to do this so it will be flush and level when you lean your blanket ladder against the wall when it’s finished.


After you cut all the wood, sand all the surfaces paying special attention to the ends that were cut until they are all nice and smooth. For a more worn look, round all the sharp edges with the sander if you’d like.


Next, you will use a tape measure to mark 12-inch increments along both sides of your 6-foot pieces. These will be the spots you will nail in your rungs.


Before nailing in the rungs, apply a little bit of wood glue on each end. Once the wood glue dries, it will really be what is holding your blanket ladder in place.

When your ladder is leaning against the wall, you want your rungs to be level and straight. When your rungs are level you will able to sit knick-knacks on them and hang your blankets on the ladder and everything will look nice and straight. That said, your rungs need to be angled at 10° when you nail them in.

To do this we grabbed the scrap piece of 2×4 that we had cut off the legs in the second part of step 1.



You’ll wedge that tiny scrap piece in place using a triangle as a guide. This is an easy way to make sure you have the right angle without having to measure it over and over again for each rung. Then you’ll pop two or three nails into each end of the rung using a nail gun. Repeat for each rung.

To hold everything in place, use two large clamps. Set aside and wait! You’ll want your wood glue to dry a good 24 hours.

Be sure to sand off any spots where the wood glue might have leaked out when you clamped your ladder. The stain will not adhere if there is any wood glue residue
