If you have just moved into a new house or apartment, then you're probably spending a lot of your free time thinking up creative ways to decorate your interior and make it our own. There are so many different ways to do this, you can make it look cozy, modern, sleek and elegant, the list is endless. Though besides making it look good you'll also need to consider how you are going to store and display your belongings. If you are like me you may have cupboards filled with ornaments, potted plants, books, CDs, records, etc; what are you going to do with all of these things? One way to deal with the clutter is to use cupboards to hide all of your unneeded belongings away, though a better option is to use shelves to present some of your more ornate items in a neat ordered way. The great thing about shelves is there are so many different shapes, sizes, styles and colors to fit your décor, currently the most popular type are the ladder shelves.
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.
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.
