In fact, depending on what you plan to put on it, you could actually use a real ladder as a shelving unit by leaning it against the wall without opening it. Since there won't be much depth to the shelves if you do this, make sure you leave the ladder in a part of the room which doesn't get much people traffic. It's perfect for displaying changing artwork or photos and adding interest to a corner.
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.
Ladder shelving is exactly what it sounds like: shelving which resembles the steps on a ladder. It's a great solution for areas which lack space, but which are perfect to use as decorative feature.
