    Clever Uses For An Old Ladder http://www.diylife.com/2011/09/14/diy-ladder/ If your ladder is a bit dingy, clean it up, scrape or sand off the old paint unless you're going for that shabby chic look. Tighten up that wobbly leg, and try one of these nifty ideas: 1. Bookshelf. You've seen ladder-shaped bookshelves, right? Well, obviously, they were inspired by the real thing. You can use an old ladder as a bookshelf and save yourself a lot of cash while still getting the same look. 2. Pot rack. How fun is this idea we spotted over on Woman's Day? Just take an old ladder and place it on its side, affix to the ceiling and use it to hang your pots and pans! diy ladderDo these photos inspire you to dig up your old ladder?

Why not use your old ladder instead and save that money for some new bath salts or a towel upgrade? diy ladderAn instant purse rack! Photo: Holly Becker, decor8 4. Plant stand. You can actually buy ladder plant stands, but why spend $99 when you have a free one collecting dust? 5. Closet organizer. Ladies, do you want somewhere to hang or rest your purse collection? What about sweaters, or maybe you need somewhere to hang your pants or rest your shoes? An old ladder in the closet is a great place to organize your clothing and accessories. 6. Nightstand. If your ladder has flat rungs that are like small shelves, you can use a ladder as a nightstand. Simply place the ladder next to the bed and use the rungs to place your alarm clock, books or magazines and phone (or whatever else you keep next to the bed). 7. Wall decor. Hang an old ladder on the wall as art! Paint it a fun color to match your room, or affix family memorabilia to the rungs and use it as a wall display.

Instead of installing a typical metal rack to hold your towels, enlist a ladder made of bamboo (or some other wood that can withstand humidity) to do the job.

Saw a ladder at a resale shop today. Old wood. Little bit of paint droplets. I think I am going to buy it and do shelving similar to this. Any thoughts?
