사다리를 이용한 DIY [번역중입니다.^^]

One of my favorite things about the Country Living Fair was seeing all of the different ways that vendors used vintage pieces to display their wares. Old vintage ladders were one of the things that I noticed being used again and again as part of creative displays. It got me thinking about the possibility of using a vintage ladder for a bare corner in my living room so I went looking for some design inspiration to see what others have done with vintage ladders in their homes. I was astounded by the number of creative ways that I found to repurpose ladders and by the decorative interest they added to these homes so I’ve put my favorites together in a post to share my inspiration!
25 Unique Ways to Use Vintage Ladders

One of the simplest uses of vintage ladders is to prop them up against a wall and drape items on the rungs. Tracey chose to hang grain sacks from her vintage ladder as part of her gorgeous studio as seen on her blog, French Larkspur

Ladders with flat rungs can be used to display favorite items in your home, such as these gorgeous sea colored bottles that Maria of Dreamy Whites displayed on her vintage ladder

Old ladders are also perfect spots for plants, both inside your home

and outside in your outdoor living space or garden.

I also love the ideas of using a vintage ladder to:

  • hold towels in a bathroom such as {here} and {here}
  • hold jewelry such as {here}

If you have a front porch, think about using a vintage ladder when you decorate the outside of your home this fall. Which idea is your favorite?
