I don’t know why I love a good library ladder – I just know that I do. Ever since I was a child, when I saw them in movies, they were always my favorite thing. From Beauty & the Beast to Hidden Figures, every time I see one, they just sing to my soul.
So when we built our studio, I was kinda crushing on the idea of installing a library ladder, but I wasn’t really sure what the point of it would be if I wasn’t using the wall for storage. But a few weeks ago, we decided to move our metal grid boards (that tutorial is finally coming next week!), so to get them up high enough to maximize wall storage, then a library ladder was a great solution to get up there and use every inch possible.
I wasn’t sure exactly how to build it…. then I came across these kits on Rockler Woodworking. and I was sold! I know that their project kits are super easy to follow and make things come together beautifully. So that’s the route that I took so we could build ours without figuring out angles and weird cuts.

I started with this kit from Rockler Woodworking – which makes the whole project incredibly easy. While I could show you a TON of steps, instead I filmed a step-by-step video to show you how to build it all.
