because life should be eventful

Tag Archives: stain

So, I saw this idea on Pinterest and totally wanted to make one! It was such an incredibly easy project and only took about 10 minutes (not including staining the wood)! The great thing about this project is you could make it as narrow or wide as you want, with as many rungs as you need! I made mine shorter but wide enough to really display the blankets. I used this stain by Rustoleum in the Kona color. It turned out so pretty and only needed one coat. 

Enjoy! Xo

What you’ll need:

1 – 1 x 4 x 10 piece of wood

1 quart of wood stain

Paintbrush

Long nails and drill

First: I had handsome cut the wood to the measurements I needed

Second: I stained the wood (this is for more than one project).

Third: I measured out where I wanted the rungs to go and made marks with a sharpie.

I wanted the rungs to be at an angle so it was a little harder to hold everything while drilling.

I did put 2 nails on each side of the rungs to keep them from rotating.

Final: Put your favorite blankets on display! I just love how this turned out. Ours is a little shorter and wider than the one pictured but I like it that way!
