About Wooden Ladders
The sweet smell of worn wood and the crinkled texture of chipped paint on an antique ladder tell a long story of authentic use. While your wooden ladder may be sound enough to be used for work around the house today, some still have a lifetime of use in them when put in a more decorative roll. A humble old wooden ladder with years of character worn into the smooth rungs and broad sides has endless possibilities as a rustic decor accessory for your home. Lean it against a living room wall and drape cozy throw blankets over the rungs, hang it on a wall as a structural statement piece in place of a painting, or place it on the sunny side of your apartment balcony and prop small pots of herbs and smaller veggies in a makeshift garden arrangement. A smaller variation, like a wooden stepladder, can be used as a unique shelf or side table. It is also perfect as a doggie step stool that your tiny pooch or older pup can use to climb into bed. There is a vast inventory of wooden ladders on eBay, so shop for those with charm that speaks to you and put them to work as original decor in your own home.
