How to make a ladder shelf.
You can make an interesting display with an old ladder, I’ve seen them used in so many projects. I was so excited when I spotted this one at a local store. I knew I had to have it! I knew I was was going to make a ladder shelf. This is how I reFreshed a ladder.
For this project you’ll need:
1. Wood ladder
2. Salvaged boards
4. Thumb tacks
These old boards were removed from a cabinet, they are not very pretty, but they are very sturdy. Perfect for creating shelves.
I placed my board on the burlap to create the pattern for the rest of them. I cut around leaving an inch of overhang.
After cutting all the burlap, I used thumb tacks to secure it to the boards.
The ladder has seen a lot of jobs, the rungs are sturdy and show lots of character.
I added a couple colorful banners. I used cards stock, glue stick and string. Really high tech stuff 🙂
