If you’re looking for a fun way to display and store blankets in your house with a modern farmhouse style, you’re going to love this simple tutorial for a DIY blanket ladder! It’s so simple and inexpensive to recreate this for your home.

As I’ve been dreaming of baby girl’s room, I was planning some functional decor items….which are always a necessity for me. Especially in nurseries, I think it’s important to make sure you have your storage bases covered…think ahead about where you will store clothes, shoes, diapers, books, toys and….baby blankets…..enter the DIY baby blanket ladder!

Step 1: Cut the wood down in size.

Step 2: Grab your sander and lightly sand all edges of the wood pieces.

Step 3: Mark the placement of the rungs on the long 6 foot pieces. 

Step 4: Attach rungs.

Step 5: Take some wood putty and fill in the holes where you’ve drilled the screws in.

Step 6: Using a staining rag (or an old ripped up tee shirt or even a foam paint brush), wipe on the stain. Wait 24 hours for the stain to dry completely.

Step 7: After the stain is dry, seal with a wipe on poly.

Easy as that!! This baby blanket ladder will not only provide some aesthetic appeal with a farmhouse style, but it is functional and will hold the baby blankets.
