For sometime I have been looking for an old wooden ladder. I found one already painted white, with some age showing, at an antique place for $12.50! I had to buy it. My original idea was to hang it from the ceiling over my counter, and put ivy and lights on it. I may still do that, but I have a great shelf that it might block, if I hang it there. Meanwhile, I decided to use it in my bedroom as a magazine holder. I really like it alot! So, maybe I need to find another old ladder to hang over my counter!
