Espresso Ladder Bookcase - This also features 5-tier shelves. This ladder shelf is perfect for displaying all types of books. Because it is wide enough, it's also ideal for displaying photographs and toy collections too. The Espresso Ladder Bookcase is made from solid wood and has a refined dark brown finish.
In fact, depending on what you plan to put on it, you could actually use a real ladder as a shelving unit by leaning it against the wall without opening it. Since there won't be much depth to the shelves if you do this, make sure you leave the ladder in a part of the room which doesn't get much people traffic. It's perfect for displaying changing artwork or photos and adding interest to a corner.
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.
