DIY Blanket Ladder

Hi Friends,
When I made the Hanging Patio Ladder last week I had enough scrap
wood rung pieces to make another Ladder.  I only needed to purchase the 2 side pieces.
I think everyone but me has made one, but I thought I'd share my version.

 I used (2) 1.5'' x 1.5'' x 8'  Furring strips   -$2.00 each at Home Depot
2 outside pieces- 6 ' each
6 rungs or cross pieces- 17'' each
I used a staple gun
1st cross piece 3'' from top
next pieces are 12'' apart
Use a level 
 Lightly sand, I used the side of a hammer to dent and age my ladder.
My favorite  BRIWAX  in Dark Brown and a soft cloth
Stained and sealed. Let dry over night.
Bring inside, add some blankets! 

This is where it stayed for now. 
 I was very pleased with how it came out. You know me I was changing it and
moving it all over the house.
Thanks for letting me share this scrap project with you.
Have a wonderful Blessed day!
