Ladder Love For Your Home


After I repurposed my old weathered ladder, I became interested in ways others might have repurposed their ladders. So I went to Pinterest to see what I could find.


I love this lighting!


Using old drawers. This is very similar to what I did with boxes.


So many exciting ways to use ladders outdoors. I like how this one used vintage boxes with plant containers.

This would be a good space to start seedlings too.


This particular "ladder" looks as though it was a DIY project. I love how she used it in her bathroom to organize items.


This is a cute little step ladder. The plants arranged on the rungs are a nice touch.


Creating boxes for house plants is a perfect use of this ladder.


And why not hang it for use in the kitchen to act as a storage shelf?


Here's another ladder with house plants.


And another one used in a bathroom to hold towels.


Here's one that stores board games. Wouldn't children love this type of storage?

Do you use ladders as decor in your home?

  1. Hmmm. We have a rickety red wooden ladder that I kind of hate to just throw away. You have some good ideas here, and much safer than using the ladder for climbing.

  2. I do like the use of ladders in decorating. We live in a small house & I haven't been able to use a ladder in doors. I guess we already have to much furniture around. But, I do use them in our yard. I really like your new profile picture too!

  18. I have an old wooden ladder that was my dad's. I still use it for painting projects, but these ideas make me wonder if I should put it to a different use. Thanks for the clever ideas.

  19. I love old ladders. I have a big one that I use outdoors to put plants on. My neighbor was throwing the ladder away and I rescued it. I love that little green painted ladder with the plants on it. There's a vintage consignment shop near me that usually has these little ladders for sale in the nice weather. I think I might have to buy one this year now. ;-)

  20. I have a dumpster dive step ladder in my main bathroom. Since it is a very small bathroom I leave it closed but lean it up against the wall and the air register holds the bottom so it does not slide. I use it for a magazine rack and display on the shelves. I love it.
