Decorating with a ladder is a very original idea – it saves space and adds vintage charm to the room. You can use a ladder to hang ceilings in the living room or as a shelf for photo frames or plants. A great alternative to the traditional bulky wooden ladders is a thin metal ladder. A ladder can also be used as a coat or shoe rack in the foyer, with hooks on the sides for keys and jackets. A double-sided ladder can have wooden boards between the steps to create a wide shelf. A stepladder can be used as a bedroom end table, and in a dining room it can act as a shelf for eating utensils and snacks. It is a decoration in itself. You can do a lot with an old ladder.
