This is the easiest project ever.
I swear. You will love it.
Go to Home Depot and just snag up three wood dowels. (Go HERE to buy them online.) Hobby Lobby sells them too for about the same price. I like the ones that are about 4 feet tall, but they come in various heights and sizes so just go with what feels good.
Or just go with whatever you can get in your cart before your kids start crying because the hardware store does not sell anything fun like Lego’s and My Little Pony.
Welcome to my world.
Two of the dowels you do nothin’ with.
The third you will want to cut into 12 inch pieces.
If your dowel is four feet tall, you will end up with four pieces.
Brilliant mathematical observation on my part, yes.
Warning: Cut evenly! You can’t make a ladder with mismatched pieces in the middle.
I used wood glue to piece it all together, and then reinforced with nails when the glue was dry.
Use a flat surface to lay it all out. I do not recommend doing it on the garage floor while your three-year old rides her trike in circles around you.
I do have a photo of her encircling me, but I can’t show it to you because I may or may not have made said three-year old cry.
I did feel bad. Just so ya know.
I spray painted mine with Rustoleum Copper Metallic and I love how it turned out looking like copper pipes instead of wood.
I think it will go in my closet primarily for scarves.
I love scarves.
is it fall yet?
Doesn’t that sound lovely? Wearing a fall scarf and ditching the sticky flip-flops?
Girl can dream.
