Repurposing ladders

Before the school year started, I decided to clean my room and throw away those papers, magazines, reference materials and other books I have not been using. It took me almost a day to sort out and finish everything. Ironically, I have a small room yet I always allow myself to accommodate a lot of unnecessary things. As I browsed the few magazines I have, I saw this


At least for my friends, they know me as the last person who would ever purchase this kind of magazine. I don't know what forces and spirits made me bought a Singaporean based home and lifestyle magazine. Perhaps, I just wanted to display something in our living room back when I purchased this. I admit that of the years I had this magazine, I never had the chance to browse and read the entire contents.

I checked the magazine and look what I found 


How unique and innovative!

This in effect made me google more ways to repurpose a typical ladder.

I was amazed of these simple creativity and imagination. If destiny will allow me build my own place, repurposed ladders will surely be included in my home pieces.

  7. Good thing you found that magazine when you cleaned up your room, Diane!
    I have stacks of those kind of magazines because I love interior design :)
    I definitely like the shabby chic ladder and the red one in the kitchen is kind of cute too! Unfortunately we don't have any space to put it, our house is tiny ;-)

  8. Hi Diane! Oh, these are great ideas using the ladders! I saw a ladder used in a flower bed and just loved it. Maybe I can find an old one and put it to work.
    Be a sweetie,

  9. I love all of these ideas! My favorite is the one hanging over the dining room table with all the lanterns attached. I'm certain that one day you'll be using ladders in creative ways all over your beautiful home.
