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.
The leaning bookcase has become commonplace in many homes seeking that modern feel. Quite simply, it is just a bookcase but with a distinct crick in its design that almost looks like a ladder. Almost like the ladder found in libraries of old but instead used to shelve books. The leaning bookcase is usually secured directly to the wall and is set up to make the most of limited shelf space.
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.
