In the Works | Repurposing Old Wooden Ladders

Above is what I want, below is the current condition of my old wooden ladders. The photo below are of two old wooden ladders that my husband found, probably in the alley. They are in great condition. I don't mind the paint splatters, it just give them character. They have been stored in our garage as you can see with lots of other junk.

There are many ways to repurpose old wooden ladders for use indoors or out. I'm gathering inspiration for this upcoming project.
