Lets decorate with... old ladders
September 21, 2011
I’m always on the look out for clever storage ideas and one of my favourites is giving an older ladder a new use. Small ones make great bedside tables or plant displays, while larger ones are great for hanging from the kitchen ceiling for pot holders or leaning against a wall to stash towels, blankets, or even books and magazines.
They’re pretty easy to get your hands on too – eBay usually has plenty on offer, and Bubbledrum and Elemental tend to have one or two in stock. If you like the idea but not the beat-up dirty look (which I love!) then good old M&S has a ladder-style bookshelf in a few different colours which is cool for a sleeker look.
