    1. Make a hanging rack from the ceiling in your laundry room for drying
    2. Make a hanging pot rack in the kitchen from the ceiling with eye-hooks and chain, and use S-hooks to hang pots
    3. Turn into a angled bookcase against a wall by adding a shelf to each rung of the ladder, and a top brace to secure to wall.

    i wish i could see a picture! some were made taller than others. however, given enough space, i think it would make a terrific lookng towel rack in a bathroom, or in a
    living room a throw (blanket) rack.

    depending on your decor, for example if you have an adobe, southwestern, or spanish style dwelling or theme, a few colorful hand spun woolen throws would look nice.

    or if you have a sewing room, it mite make a great fabric rack.

    our son is into long boarding and with that in mind, it might make a unique longboard or skateboard rack/display-hanging the boards by their wheels on the rungs of the ladder-and as the width of the ladder gets wider, maybe hang a longboard AND a smaller skateboard next to each other on a rung.

    i also think if your into the rustic decor thats a such huge trend at the moment, securing the ladder to a kitchen ceiling and hanging pots & pans might look awesum.

    or hang it from the ceiling of a laundry room-using it to hang-dry items from wooden hangers might look unique.

    if you have one of those wonderful porches where you have rocking chairs and potted flowers, it might just be the one thing that sets your style apart from everyone else. here, im thinking you could lean it against the shorter of the porch walls, and hang flower pots (using "S" hooks) unevenly, from bottom to top.

    or maybe you're into electronics, computers, gaming, or music editing/production. you could use it as a wire management rack, hanging cables, cords, and wiring (simply hung over the rungs) with the longer ones nearer the top and the smaller ones nearer the bottom.

    if magazines are your thing, how about displaying them by simply opening up the magazines near their mid-sections and displaying them by letting them hang on the rungs from their spines?

    i can think of so many more ideas! from a holiday tree, a trellis for vines (using it upside-down), to a purse, hat, belt, scarf, or jewelry rack...GOOD LUCK!

    You could use it in the Garden as an Arch or Kiddies Climbing Frame.
