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

  1. Now I just need a bunk bed ladder! I love this! Way cuter than my pants hanger turned ribbon holder :)

  2. This is such a great idea! Thanks for sharing--will have to try to find a similiar ladder myself!

  3. This is great! I have so much ribbon and am always looking for great ways to store it...thanks, Kim

  4. Wonderful idea and lovingly brought to live. Have fun with your ribbons.

  5. I really like this idea. Just today I was thinking my what I thought was adequate, pretty and clever rbbon storage has suddenly become inadequate, overflowing and not so fabulous. this is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Oh, I want one! This is too cute...and functional...and cute...and functional.

  7. This is a great idea, I just found your blog and it's great, I'm now a follower. Have a great Monday. Smiles, Carol Mae

  8. You are a brilliant girl. What a great use for a freebie ladder. I also love that frame in the picture. I can't wait to yard sale season to start.

  9. Very "green" idea and nice looking too.
