Supplies you’ll need to make a Kitchen Towel Ladder:
- 1×2 Wood Pieces
- Black Magic Voodoo Gel from Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel from Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Hand Sander
- Titebond Wood Glue
- Brad Nail Gun
To begin, cut your 1×2 pieces as follows: 2 – 16 inches tall pieces, 3 – 10 inch long pieces. 2 – angled pieces (optional). Since I was doing two ladders, I made two sets of the pieces. Also note that the black ladder has angles cut into the legs at both the top and bottom. This is an optional step.
Once all the pieces were cut, I used my hand sander to smooth out any rough spots on the wood.
Next, it was time for stain.
One set of pieces was stained using Voodoo Gel Stain in the color Black Magic. You can also see in the photo above, that this was the ladder that had the angles cut into both legs.
The next set of pieces was stained using Voodoo Gel Stain in the color Tobacco Road. I simply used a clean cloth to apply the stain on both sets.
Make sure to stain all sides of each piece of wood.
Let everything dry completely before moving onto assembly.
Now it’s time to assemble!
For assembly, I used two raw scrap pieces as spacers, along with a tape measurer and pencil to mark where I wanted everything to go together.
Then I used wood glue, clamps and a brad nail gun to assemble the ladder.
Be sure to glue and clamp the bottom rung first so you have room to nail the small angled pieces into place.
Once the bottom rung and angled pieces are in place, add the other two rungs using the glue and nailer combo.
Let’s take a look at the finished ladders!
This has to be my favorite way to display all of my cute kitchen towels!

Yes, you are correct, good eye. We used Dixie Belle Voodoo gel stains in Black Magic and Tabacco Road. https://dixiebellepaint.com/voodoo-gel-stain-water-based/
