Yay!! Our downstairs bathroom is finally coming together. Today’s DIY bamboo ladder was an easy solution for extra towel storage and to fill up wall space. Oh, and it only cost me 10 buckaroos.
Bamboo – 2 x 1 1/2 inch thick rods and a thinner rod
Twine in a contrasting color
(The bamboo rods we found were about 7 feet tall, so my husband cut them down to about 6 ft. )
Step one: Cut the thinner piece into three ladder rungs. Make them short to long so the ladder will taper at the top.
Step 2: Lay out the cut pieces on the floor using a measuring tape for even placement. Secure each side of the rung with two zip ties in a cross pattern.
Step 3: After all of the ladder rungs are secured, trim the zip ties and conceal them by wrapping twine in an “X” pattern. Tie a knot in the back.
It’s perfect for a towel rack! You could also hang magazines or “S” hooks to hold other bathroom supplies.
One step closer to a finished bathroom!
