Decorating with a ladder is a very original idea – it’s space-saving while it’s giving some vintage charm to the space. You can use a ladder to hang up throw blankets in the living room, or as a shelf for photo frames or plants. A great alternative to the traditional bulky wooden ladders is a thin metal one. A ladder can be also used in the foyer as a coat or shoe rack, with hooks on the sides for keys and jackets. A two sided ladder can have planks of wood in between the steps to create a wide shelf. A step ladder can be used as a bedroom side table, and in a dining room it can act as shelving for dinnerware and snacks, it is a decoration piece in itself. There is quite a bit that can be done with an old ladder, so look at the gallery below and get inspired!
