Ladder type: Loft Ladder, Timber Loft Ladder
Used for: It’s not often that you get to see attic ladders used for anything other than getting to a loft or attic. But we here at ladders-online felt that Courtney has done something so truly wonderful with her old loft ladder that we just had to share it despite the low number of sites these pictures are on.
How many different web pages is this ladder image on: 4,800+
Where is it: California, USA
Story behind it: Because the images kind of speak for themselves we will hand you over to Courtney’s own words to describe exactly how we ended up with the images we are looking at: “It all started few months before May 25, 2011, a friend and I visited ReStore for the first time. I of course walked out with quite a few great finds. One of which was an old worn out ladder, I just assumed it was an old loft ladder/attic ladder.” (which indeed it was)
“It sat in my garage for quite some time while I tried to figure out what I was going to do with it. While getting ready for a show I was perusing my “stash” of re-usable goodies, pulling out potential projects. I decided that this loft ladder needed a new life pronto. And I guess in this twisted brain of mine, I looked at the loft ladder and saw a hanging art gallery! I grabbed a couple of doller land store picture frames to hang from the ladder, then I stained the frames with a dark walnut stain and then painted them the same Heirloom White as the loft ladder. I took some sandpaper and distressed both the loft ladder(a little bit more than it already was, and the picture frames. Then using a few white hooks, I attached the picture frames with some pretty off white lace ribbon, and there you have it! A pretty easy project and I loved the end product!”
“It would fit perfectly into the corner of a room, a place where a hole needs to be filled. It could even be hung up on the wall, or even turned sideways and the hooks moved. The pictures can easily be changed out and the whole gallery can be moved around easily without a bunch of holes in the wall! What’s not to love?” And we here at ladders online agree.
