I needed a more storage in our bathroom, but didn’t want to clutter the space up or weigh it down with a big enclosed cabinet. This open shelf ladder style storage unit is perfect and keeps everything within easy reach. It’s a simple project that goes together quickly and easily. This simple ladder shelf adds tiered storage. Perfect for a bathroom or any room of the home!

  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Cutting Cut all of your boards according to the cut list. Cut longest lengths first to ensure best use of material. On angled front legs, set miter saw to 15 degrees on the deck, and cut both ends parallel, overall length is measured along same edge, long point to short point. After angled front legs are cut, measure in 1-3/4” from short side and use a square to mark back of leg. Cut off with a jig saw.

      Back Ladder Assemble the back ladder with either 2” self tapping screws or pocket hole screws.

    3. Step: 3
