Ladder Craft Organizer

6:21:00 AM

You may remember the old ladder that I 
jammed into the back of my car...

The piece I hadn't used yet made a great 
craft organizer... 

I began by "sewing" on the chicken wire using 
jute twine with a large needle I made out of wire...

Each shelf has a special use...

A magnetic washboard...

Clip on memos...

Rusty metal spikes are wedged in between the shelves to act as ribbon holders...

A basket for "stuff"...
(or cute numbers)

And a bar across the top of the shelf hangs hooks for whatever you want to hang....
(maybe even a rusty bicycle chain in the shape of a heart)

All together it makes an awesome junky 
organizer and is perfect on the big wall in my
