Great Ways To Use Old Ladders

We know ya'll come across rickety old ladders at garage sales. Most men don't see the value in them so they toss em' out for garbage, after all, if they are rickety then they can't be used for their original purpose...right?
Sooooo's what we see in an old ladder!

Use a small step ladder for an end table. You can paint it any color you want. Since its small and sorta see could go really bold with it.

 Here's a clever way to store books and they are right a the tip of your fingers. 

 Use a ladder to display a collection of items, like these vintage buckets. Maybe you collect perfume bottles, this would be perfect for that in a bathroom. You could a couple of rungs for towels. 

 This is a creative way to use old ladders, old locker baskets and vintage style light bulbs. Unique!

Take them outside and use them for a beverage station at your next outdoor BBQ. 
So let's let those men continue to throw out their useless of us junksisters will find em' and put em' to good use!  Can we get an AMEN...sisters?


  1. Amen! I have one just waiting for me to paint it! ♥

  2. I have a wooden step ladder that had old drawers added to the ladder steps....decorated with ceramic drawer knobs on the front. The whole thing is painted yellow. And the drawers are meant to be used as planter boxes! It looks darling with pansies planted in it.
