Completed Blank Ladder Project

Here’s what we did:

We went to our local Home Depot and purchased 2 – 2x4x8’s and 1 – 2x6x12.  We had our guys at The Home Depot (also a great place to purchase our BLACK+DECKER drill if you are not the lucky winner), and had them cut the 2x6x12  into 4 17″ pieces, and we picked up 2-1/2″ pocket Hole Screws by Kreg.  We brought our goodies home, and got started.

Supplies needed to complete project

We popped our new BLACK+DECKER 20V MAX Lithium Cordless Drill/Driver with AutoSense Technology out of the box and got to work.

We took the 4 17″ 2×6’s and added 2 pocket holes at each end of the board using our Kreg Pocket Hole Jig, and our BLACK+DECKER Drill.

Adding Kreg Pocket Holes

After all the holes were drilled, we attached the 2×6’s to the first 2×4 at an angle starting the first 2×6 5″ from the top, and spacing 14″ there after until all the 2×6’s were in place, making sure each piece fit within the 2×4 on the angle with no overlap.  Once all the 2×6’s were attached, we added the second side starting with the top, 5″ down to match the opposite side.

Next, we painted our ladder with General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint, and let dry.

Once dry, we brought the ladder into the sitting room, placed behind the chair and filled with lovely, snugly blankets.  See how easy that was?  And just think, no more blankets on the floors!!!

Oh, we are not done yet – I promised you one lucky winner here in the US, will win a new drill just like mine! How exciting is that!!!!  It’s a BLACK+DECKER 20V MAX* Lithium Cordless Drill/Driver with AutoSense Technology.  This drill  has an automatic clutch that has proven to be three times more accurate than a mechanical clutch. I didn’t have to experiment with trial and error to set the clutch. I simply set the drill to drive mode, and it did the monitoring of torque needed to drive the screw…Totes am I right!
