Hey guys! We are so excited to kick-off the first day of the 12 Days of Christmas! To keep up with our latest projects follow us on Instagram!
Our first post is a super easy and inexpensive Blanket Ladder. I love making my home feel comfortable but chic for the holidays, whether it be for my own family or our guests! I’ve seen a lot of ladders for blankets in the past but, when I saw the one our sister Kyndra’s hubby made for her, I HAD to have one of my own! My favorite part of the ladder is the 2×6′s! They give it a solid, chunky look!
Here’s how I did it!
Next, I used my Kreg Jig to drill 1 1/2″ pocket holes into the ends of each 2×6. If you do not own a Kreg Jig, you can pre drill from the sides of the 2×4′s into the 2×6′s and follow up with 2 1/2″ wood screws.
You can see that I circled where I drilled my Kreg pocket holes.
I set the 2×6 boards so that the front corner touched the front of the 2×4 and the back corner of the 2×6 touched the back of the 2×4. I placed the top 3″ from the top of the 2×4 and spaced the others 12″ apart from each other. I measured from the front corner of each 2×6.
Make sure your Kreg pocket holes are facing the back. I used 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws to attach the 2×6 boards.
Next, just attach the other 2×4 to the other side of the 2×6′s the same way.
Once it was dry, I added a few cute and soft blankets!
