Every time I head to a garage sale or thrift store, I keep an eye out for a vintage ladder. They’re so multifunctional – they can find a home in almost any room, whether it’s a living room or a bathroom. I typically use them as anything besides a climbing tool. I find they’re much more charming holding a slew of colorful high heels or a stack of towels. If you have an old ladder lying around, dust it off and try one of these ideas.
