Fun Ways to Use Old Ladders In Your Home

By on April 1, 2012

I have been looking for some old ladders to use in my garden and in my home since….forever! I think everyone else is looking for them too (since I can’t seem to find even one old rickety wooden ladder).

I thought I’d share some ladder ideas that I’d been saving. Maybe you’ll be luckier than me and find one!

Lean one against the wall –  it provides great storage without putting holes in the wall! Make a ladder into a pot rack.

Hope you found something to inspire you to recycle ladders into your home decor.

Have a great weekend!
