Make this simple towel rail ladder out of some repurposed home materials – a simple and quick DIY!
- Pine PAR – 3 x 32mm x 69mm x 2.4m
- Chalk paint
- Coarse sand paper
- Wood stain
- Wood glue
- Tape measure
- 60mm cut screws
- Cordless drill
- 4mm wood bit
- 2 Sides: 1.8m x 32mm x 69mm
- 5 Rungs: 450mm x 32mm x 69mm
Use a pencil and mark where to place the rungs along the sides. Start the first rung 150mm from the end and space the rest equally on the uprights.
Drill holes at the marked points.
Top Tip: Place a piece of scrap timber beneath the wood you are drilling into to avoid the drill going into your work surface.
Start the screws in the pre-drilled pilot holes and then screw the rungs into place. Turn one side over and line up the rungs.
Make use of a spacer beneath the rung to make sure it sits at the correct height.
Start at one end of your ladder and make your way upward. Use wood glue on the mating surfaces as well as screws to ensure a solid bond. Repeat the process for each rung.
Once all the rungs are attached, sand the ladder to add more texture to the wood and also to smooth any rough or sharp corners.
Stain the ladder in a colour of your choice.
Once the stain is dry, apply chalk paint to one end. Use masking tape to section off the side of the ladder you want painted.
Finally, once the paint is dry you can use sand paper to give the ladder a rustic, earthy look or simply leave it as is.
