New use for an Old Ladder

Summer is winding down here…so hard to believe! We are actually feeling ready I think to go back and start learning again. I must admit I will miss them a bit….we have had such a fun time this summer…but I are ready for the routine and comfort of fall and everything that comes with it! Here is a quick peak at something I recently found a new use for….I thought I would share incase you ever spot an old ladder in your travels…

A couple of weeks back I tweeted this picture of an old ladder I had found while thrifting. I really really love it!

Great condition…but it has all the chippy wood that I love. I had dreams of making it into a console table.

 I wasn’t really sure how to go about it….so I started using it this way. It makes for great storage….but yet you can still see the lovely ladder itself.

Perfect!!

And be sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter….I love to share many ideas and pictures on there in between post ;)

    Very cool!

  2. That's gorgeous! I've been hassling my boyfriend to make me one for our bathroom towels for ages, so I'm very jealous of your thrifted version.
