Spindle Ladder

1 Hour
So I made a decorative ladder with plans to hold scarves in my closet. But it turned out so cool, I think it's home will be in the kitchen. Plus it will be fun to decorate for holidays.
I love broken pieces and spindles from broken furniture. Five spindles cut to the same size make the rungs of the ladder.
Super easy project that took less than an hour to finish.
The ladder didn't cost me anything because I had the wood for the rails leftover from another project.
Now for another idea for those scarves!

    I need a light in my dining room. And I want to make one with a ladder. And I have several old chairs that aren't suitable for actually sitting. So... I will take apart the chairs and use them for this ladder. The seat/backs of the chairs will be shelves. All ideas I found on HomeTalk! We are a brilliant group of people!
