    Put ladders side by side. Placed finished boards between the steps of the ladders. Use to display collections, pictures, plants, eyc.

    Sand each one down and reseal with clear sealer and use to hang towels , blankets or throws on. Or you could place boars across the rungs of each latter to make some book shelves.

    My sister hung one on her kitchen wall and hung antique kitchen tools like peelers and mashers.from it. She had fun collecting the objects at flea markets and yard sales

    If they are those old ones with the round rungs, you can hang them from the ceiling using some big eye hooks and hooks, then add S-hooks to hang stuff. You can cut the ladder to a smaller section and make a hanging pot rack in the kitchen.
    You can cut the tops and bottoms at an angle to lean against a wall, add a section of wider wood on each step to make a bookcase. You can also make a leaning towel rack for the bathroom.

    This is what I did with a small ladder that is 60+ years old! I help the buckets on with e6000! It has been out all year long
