Materials required Depending on the panels you choose (and what the current wood prices are), you can build this decorative grove staircase for as little as $ 10-20 worth of materials! When choosing your wood, keep in mind that the fur slats are cheap in sizes 1×4 and 1×2, but they are not of the highest quality wood so you have to be picky! Read our tips here to choose the straighter and best palettes. Tools Needed The angular profile of this DIY ladder means every notch is angled at the ends, so we recommend a compound miter saw (although a circular saw with an adjustable blade can work as well). The nailer will make the assembly process quick and easy, but you can also use wood screws or a hammer for the nails. Stair Building All required cuts, stair lengths and locations, and ladder building steps are included in this printable PDF plan. This is a perfect plan for a beginner or weekend project, with just a few steps: Angle the top of the ladder and the bottom (optional, to help the ladder settle against the wall and floor). Cut the ladder at an angle of degrees. Attach the stairs with nails, nails, or screws. Sand and finish. Finishing and staining the decorative staircase Once you have finished building the ladder, have it match your style with the finish you choose! To get the look of a country farmhouse, you can remove wood with hammers, screws, etc. You can also factory trim the edges of the panel for a hand-sculpted look. Then a tea stain with this DIY handcraft wood stain recipe will give you the cute rustic look of old wood, like these large wood frames and rustic wall boxes. DIY Distressed Wood Worktops If you want to add some color, use our favorite color wash technique to paint the wood in any color! You can also use this technique to adjust the color of the stain before adding the topping, as we did for the baby barn door and Dutch door. You can also add some metallic hardware to the vintage look, like upholstery nails at the ends of steps or a large bolt screw at the top / sides of the ladder. Age the metal by soaking it in vinegar or dusting it with spray paint as Corrie did with metallic accents on this wall shelf. How to Decorate a Ladder Now you have a great decorating piece to help you transition into a vertical position! You can also use this ladder to hang towels, arrange blankets, or store high-heeled shoes. See 10 more ways to decorate a ladder.
