The funniest part was when we got it back to our car, we realized we forgot WHICH car we'd driven and getting a 7 1/2 foot ladder into a Chevy Cavalier was no small feat! I'm not sure what I'll do with it but when looking for inspiration I found some very cute ideas!
Carolina Country Living added a rustic piece of wood to the top and made this fantastic shelf!
Here's another version with the ladder as a shelf from Mia's Interior
Better Homes & Gardens featured this in a storage and organization article - LOVE those old furnace grates attached as shelves!
Crafts by Amanda has the most wonderful tutorial on this decoupage ladder! She gives all of the details for covering the rungs as well as how she made some of the decorative items ON the ladder! I think some of this will definitely be happening to my ladder!
Poetic Home has a whole slew of ideas for ladders including this great one for housing your book collection!
This "Spooky Style Ladder from Midwest Living.com would be fun for different holidays too! I'm thinking some vintage fabric hanging behind with different letters for different holidays . . .
I know, this is a bit early but over at curbly.com (OH, you have to stop and browse this site!) they came up with what they call "Curbly Recession Busters: Free Alternative Christmas Trees" -- this really made me smile!
Not sure what MY ladder will end up looking like but this gives me a start on ideas!
