Ladder Shelving

An old ladder found on the side of the road gets an easy and functional makeover using a few pieces of wood
and white paint...

I cut a 1" x 6" to create a shelf for each ladder rung, previously this ladder had only dowel-like steps. I screwed the wide boards securely to the sides of the ladder, 
drilling the holes first and using long screws...


It was easy to turn this unused ladder into much 
needed shelving with little or no effort.

A coat of bright white paint unified the whole piece...

and the shelf width is perfect for baskets, collectables, or books.

My clock fit perfectly between the top rungs and 
makes it look like it belongs there!

My original intent was to use these shelves in my newly painted
bathroom but this cute and functional shelving system 
will work in any room!


Pretty impressive Before and After, glad I didn't drive on by!
