What is a quilt ladder?

Are blanket ladders functional?

Often called blanket ladders or towel ladders, these vertical storage solutions are perfect for draping blankets, towels or even magazines. Even if you are unable to scale them for a little extra reach, they do have a function — and it’s a dang good one for small spaces.

What angle do you cut the bottom of a ladder?

Trim Feet. If your ladder is also 80 inches, know that a 10-degree angle is what I used when I cut my feet. Height will affect the cut you make, so start with a smaller angle, and cut away more until you’re confident that the ladder stands securely at an appropriate (and expected) angle against the wall.

What angle do you cut ladder legs?

Step 1: Cut your wood.

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.

How far apart are the rungs on a blanket ladder?

Place the six foot (1 x 4-inch) pieces on the ground and place the 18-inch boards at even intervals between them. Spacing the rungs at 14 1/2 inches apart works well, but you can space the rungs however you like.
