Ladders : Repurpose, reuse and recycle!!

Love how a simple ladder, its unique shape can be given a new lease of life, re-purposed to fit as functional furniture in just about any where in a home. I love recycling ideas and being crafty and environment conscious is a great way to celebrate interior decorating and designing.

Think out of the box and use ladder in unexpected ways, turn it into a side table, a bath rack, a kitchen stand, or multiple shelves. Here are some awesome ways to convert a simple humble ladder into an interesting piece of furniture.

All this step ladder needed is a fresh coat of bright paint. It is a perfect sturdy shelf for your patio, kitchen or conservatory. Re purposing can be so easy!
