Apart from books and other reading materials, one can place other items in their leaning bookcase. Perhaps to use it as a medium for placing their collection of trinkets which they would like to display in their homes for guests to see. This is something which can turn from a regular utility shelf to a wonderful conversational piece. It is no surprise that a lot of people are pleasantly amused with this kind of bookcase. It is something which can not be considered as conventional but is regarded as something modern and functional regardless of the type of room it is placed in.
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.
Ladder shelves come in all sorts of different shapes, sizes and colors. The most common types are made from good quality hard woods, which will be coated with a specific finish. There are also ladder shelves made from other materials, such as bamboo or even metal for extra durability. An example of a unique shelf is the 'Shanxi Shelf'; this oriental styled product is made from a strong hammered metal in a black finish hide metal shine. The upside to having a metal shelf is that it can withstand more weight and will last longer than a wooden shelf; this is especially true if you live in a humid climate.
