Alternately, you can open up the ladder, turn it sideways and add three or four shelves which you balance on the parallel steps on each side. That arrangement gives you a lot of instant shelf space with no need to install anything. If you are concerned about the shelves remaining balanced, you can easily secure them to the steps of the ladder with some screws. Measure the depth of the step and the thickness of the shelf. Buy screws that will go through the step (from the bottom) and into the bottom of the shelf, without going all the way through the shelf. This way the screws won't be seen at all.
Everybody likes buying new pieces of furniture for their homes or extra fittings to keep their house looking good. Though due to the recent economic downturn many home owners are holding on tightly to their wallets, afraid of what the future holds. Buying new items to make our living spaces more livable can be quite pricey, though one piece of furniture seems to be selling very well and has become a hot item in most homes. Ladder shelves are reasonably priced can help you to store or display your prized possessions and come in various shapes, sizes and colors.
The second step in building your ladder shelves is to take a few measurements, you will need to know the distance between each rung level, this is so that you can cut out your shelves to the right size. After you have the correct measurements, you will need to add about 16 to 17 inches to the length values, each platform needs to be a little longer than the distance between each rung. Don't forget to add up all the lengths and buy enough wood board for all of the shelves, you might be able to get wood for free at your local landfill site.
