      25 NEW WAYS TO USE YOUR OLD STUFF Rebecca Kuenzi @ilovelucylu needed somewhere to hang-dry her clothes without taking over her small laundry room. She immediately found the perfect use for an old wooden ladder. She cut the ladder in half, painted it turquoise and screwed four hooks into the top. She then added chain links and hung it directly from the ceiling. To hang her clothes from the ladder, she added multiple shower curtain hooks to each rail.

      When laundry time comes around, do you find yourself hanging damp clothes all over the house? We thought so. Rebecca Kuenzi needed somewhere to hang-dry her clothes without taking over her small laundry room. She immediately found the perfect use for an old wooden ladder she had wanted to put to use. She cut the ladder in half, painted it turquoise and screwed four hooks into the top. She then added chain links and hung it directly from the ceiling. To hang her clothes from the ladder, she added multiple shower curtain hooks to each rail. Now clothing can be hung with ease and the drying rack can stay out of the way when not in use.

    Baby gates into laundry drying racks. Now THIS is totally clever! (pinned to upcycled stuff and hh laundry boards) I think this would work SO well, perfect use of old baby gates, and with a minimum of effort. Really genius - I need this!

    DIY laundry room drying rack - I just had put this in my rehab idea book too :)

    Cottage-Style Display Shelf When you think an item has no functionality, think again. Melissa Michaels of The Inspired Room placed a small, brightly colored stepladder on the wall to function as a display shelf and eye-pleaser. The weathered finish on the ladder paired with crisp white frames on the adjacent wall gives the room a classic cottage look.

    I would never fall behind in laundry if I had such a sunny, organized space to do it in. Maybe I should just settle for the clothespin rug.

    Would have never thought of this! Paint a ladder and hang it up for drying clothes in the laundry room. Great use of space.

    I'd much prefer cabinets in mine than those wire shelfs! Another job for my home improvement guy!
