The last step is to put the ladder shelves onto the A-ladder frame. If you're worried about the shelves falling over under the weight of your belongings you can use glue to attach the platforms to each rung. Some people like to use a few screws just to make sure it is stable; your ladder shelves are now ready for decorating.
When you learn how easy it is to construct a simple set of ladder shelves, you'll wonder why you hadn't done it sooner. If you have a quick look around the house you probably have all the materials that you need, the most important part is having an 'A-Ladder' made from wood, the rest of the supplies can easily be bought at any hardware store or home depot.
Why are ladder shelves called as such? It is because they look like conventional movable construction ladders. It is based off a pyramid design with a number of level trays that are adhered to the front legs, stepping up to the top of the shelf hence the name 'ladder shelves'.
