Ladder Shelf

Ladder shelves have been around for awhile, but I have never made one until a few weeks ago.

I had a half of a tall ladder, I had used the other half or side for something a few years back.  I screwed barnwood pieces to the rungs, screwing them in from the underside of the rungs.

I added some D rings to the top part of the ladder so it can be secured to a wall.

I decided to leave it in its natural wood state--which doesn't happen often.  It went to a new home this past weekend.
