Bunk Bed Ladder Repurpose

Here's the green bunk bed ladder I picked up for FREE last weekend at a garage sale. I'm in the process of creating a craft room (pictures coming soon) so here's what I did with it...
Repurposed it into a ribbon holder. Now, I can't take credit for this idea because when I got the ladder I noticed it had holes drilled all down the sides. I asked the giver about it and she said she used it to hold ribbon. I knew all I had to do was a aged paint treatment, buy a few dowels and voila! Here's an up close
And another
I did have to break out the power saw again to cut the dowels down to size- so exciting! Hope you enjoy. Love, Kelly
