Do it your-‘shelf’

Shelves are always useful, no matter where they are placed.

At home, they not only hold decorative items, but are great space-savers, too.

If you’ve got that space just waiting for something to hold your collectibles, here’s a cool idea you might want to try. It has that great metal element required to create the industrial look that’s a trend these days, and is both practical and ingenious in its simplicity!

What you’ll need:

USEFUL and great spacesavers shelves

1 metal ladder (usually aluminum)

Wood panels for shelves fitted to the width of the ladder’s steps and the length allowed in your space

Position your ladders according to the width your space can accommodate. Insert the panels through both ladders, and voila!

Tips:

You may want to screw the shelves on the ladder steps for permanent stability.

If you’ve got the space, go with two ladders with at least two feet of space between them, and insert the boards through both.
