1 Little Step Ladder, 5 BIG Ideas

Idea number 9 is a simple step ladder. I picked this one up for $3 at the thrift store. I painted green, cream, and blue on it, wiped it with some walnut stain, and added the cricut numbers.
Here is the fun part, deciding where to use it. It looks great in a living room as a decorative piece.
How about in a kid's room for stuffed animals?
It would be great in a bathroom. Notice the reading material hanging off the back ladder rung.
What about in the guest room holding pictures?
And my favorite, in the kitchen as a wine holder. If you use it this way either sand indentations in the back rungs to hold wine more securely or cover the backs rungs with the grip shelf liner. That's a wine opener on top--looks a little funny from this angle.
What ideas do you have for a step ladder?
