What most people like about ladder shelves, is that they look original and they can make effective use of the vertical space in your home. If you tend to have a lot of extra belongings and don't now where to store them then this is the right shelf type for your house. A lot of people forget to use the vertical space in their homes; shelves and cupboards are a great way to save a lot of space. Ladder shelves will add a creative touch to your interior and give you a neat way to organize your things.
You now have the main frame, which is the ladder and the shelves prepared. The next step is to choose a color to paint the ladder shelves; a lot of people opt for a neutral matte white or rustic earthy brown. Don't use oil-based paint; this will make your final product look a little unattractive.
If you have the space, you might want to consider buying 2 identical ladders. You can buy long planks of wood for the shelves, and create a whole system. To really add flair, have the ends of the planks extend past the ladders on both ends. Have the planks cut so that the bottom plank is the longest, and then shorter and shorter. The end effect will look like a huge ladder!
