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.
Double Leaning Wall Shelf - This set of ladder shelves comes in a twin design for people that need to store more belongings, but like the look of the ladder shelf. It has a total of 12 display shelves and each of them can withstand up to 65lbs, so it is very durable; this set is not a freestanding unit, it has to be bolted to the wall. It has been constructed from oak veneer with a sleek coffee colored finish, which would look great in any living room or bedroom. Because of its size, this particular piece of furniture will cost about $170 each, which is actually not too bad considering its size.
The first step is to buy or find your self a second hand 'A-Ladder', these are old wooden step ladders with 5 - 6 rungs, if you don't have one in your garage or back garden you may be able to find a cheap alternative at a flea market or back yard sale. Don't pay more than $10 for a used A-Ladder and if you have to go to your local home depot they are available for bout $20 each.
