Clever DIY Ideas Using Wooden Ladders
One unique D.I.Y. idea to employ ladders made from wood is to use them as a coat rack. By securing the ladder to the wall in a horizontal position, it becomes easy, stylish storage for coats and sweaters that is functional while giving any room a rustic vibe.
Additionally, leaning a wooden ladder against a wall, securing with nails and adding shelves creates a unique, nautical-style bookshelf. Adorn it with seashells, ribbon or lace to customize it to align with any decor style.
Avid crafters and quilters alike will appreciate the versatility of using a wooden ladder as a display for their creative efforts. Utilizing the same technique described above, secure a ladder against a wall in a leaning position and drape quilts, embroidery or needle-work over the rungs. For added customization, sand and paint in a desired color.
Bathrooms are, by nature, some of the smallest rooms in a home. To incorporate towel storage that is both functional and interesting, attach a wooden ladder to the wall in a flat, secure position, leaving enough space to drape towels over each rung. If you'd prefer to only have a few rungs for storage, this can easily be done by removing the unneeded rungs and sanding down the edges.
To clear up some cabinet space in the kitchen, install a wooden ladder horizontally from the ceiling, hanging at the desired height. Using S-hooks, secure pots and pans from the ladder for an easy-to-reach alternative to those pesky cabinet pan piles.
With the right tools and a bit of creativity, this common household item can be transformed into a variety of functional pieces with endless creative possibilities.
