decorating with ladders

I have a ladder I've been toting around forever. It's definitely not as fabulous as these are, but it's a ladder all the same. 

I'm currently using it in the living room with blankets draped on the rungs. But I'm thinking about moving it into the bathroom for towels and to hang a monkey fist on.

So it got me to thinking... what else could I use it for?  I found some great ideas and wanted to share them with you...

Dreamy Whites uses her vintage ladder to display glass bottles.

Use it for towels in the bathroom.


Pottery Barn has made a shoe ladder. Hmmm.... what do you do, when all of your shoes are flip flops?

And the Pottery Barn prop department even has ladders for sale.

The Coastal Living Idea House created a ladder to a secret spot.
How cute is this?

The Cappuccino Cottage gave her vintage ladder a beach christmas touch, adding a starfish and greenery.

A ladder acts as a Christmas tree.  I could see doing this, using an old ladder in a guest room for the holidays.

Country Living showcased this ladder with a wreath on it.

Or, use an old ladder to hang stockings and lights, like shown in Coastal Living Magazine.

Do you have a ladder that you use, as part of your decor?

Love these ideas and the photos are so beautiful! I do have a ladder and currently it is in limbo. It was hanging sideways on my wall and I perched pictures on it but now it is in my family room awaiting its new spot. :)

I don't but my sister does. she put pieces of wood in the middle and uses it as her entertainment center. these are really cute. I have a latter but not very chic, it's the little giant from the infomercials :)

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see
if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a
youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to
start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
