How to make a super simple DIY blanket ladder! This is an excellent living room blanket storage idea!
Don’t you hate when you’re crusin’ through Pinterest looking for “easy dinner recipe” or “quick lunch ideas” and you see something that looks great so you click on it only to see an ingredient list a mile long and a seperate recipe for the dressing or toppings? When I want EASY, I want EASY! So believe me when I tell you this DIY blanket ladder is SUPER EASY!
You only need 3 boards and 8 bolts to make this this DIY blanket ladder! This living room blanket storage idea seriously couldn’t be easier!!
- Cut one of the 1x2x6 boards into four 18-inch sections.
- Stain or paint your wood.
- Drill evenly spaced holes on each side of the two 1x2x6 boards then drill corresponding holes on each side of the 18 inch boards.
- Spray paint your bolts.
- Assemble your DIY blanket ladder!
You can do whatever size wood you want for the project and could even make it taller if you wanted (use the 8 foot boards instead of 6 foot boards!)
I chose carriage bolts because I liked the round head, but if you already have hex bolts or something else on hand you can use those! The flat tips are better though (won’t poke or scratch!!).
My favorite part of my DIY blanket ladder is the the blue bolts! You can paint and stain yours to fit the style and decor of your home. I stuck mine in a piece of styrofoam to hold them in place to add a quick coat of spray paint.
