In fact, I was going to prepare this post under the title “Ladder Bookcase Ideas” but when I searched entirely about repurposing ladders, I realized that they also make great displays, room partitions and desks. So it would be unfair to tell that they can only be turned into bookcases. You will see that some creative minds have took the ladder shelf idea many steps further rather than just leaning it on the wall and putting some books on it. Don’t get me wrong, I still like it as a bookcase but what I’m trying to say is they can be more than that. For instance when implemented geniusly, like this one, an antique looking ladder shelf is like the missing last piece of a puzzle for a livingroom that is decorated in vintage style. Have a look at the photos and let us know which one fits you the best.
