Versatile vertical storage for your everyday textiles

The blanket ladder is a simple storage workhorse for just about any room in your house. In a bedroom you can employ it as a valet for the next day’s outfit, as a place to throw those not quite dirty—but not quite clean—clothes (it’s ok to admit it), or even as a spot to store actual blankets. In an entryway, it becomes a coat rack; in the den, a place to drape cozy throws or magazines. I built my five-rung ladder out of Port Orford cedar (see Woodsense, p.52), a fragrant wood that is a joy to plane, and whose delicate weight belies its strength. With shoulder-less, wedged-tenon joinery tying the rungs to the rails, you don’t need a lot of big power tools to build this quick project for a home that’s cozy and organized.
