Vintage Yellow Wooden Leaning Ladder Shelf – Build It or Buy It

Here's a great example of a leaning ladder shelf built with a used wooden leaning ladder and shelving planks. Build your own or buy this one.

Here’s a terrific example of a leaning ladder shelf by Heidi Marsh at ReviveDesignandDecor.

How Heidi Created this Shelf in 4 Steps:

1.  Purchased ladder at an antiques show.  Any wooden step ladder will do.

2.  Painted the ladder.  Heidi chose yellow for a brighter look, but obviously you can paint it any color or leave as-is.

3.  Created 4 shelving planks out of wood.  She covered the the shelves in grey and white chevron removable wallpaper.  If you decide create your own, you can use any materials you like on the planks used for shelves or just go with a natural wood look.  Notice how the shelving planks are shorter at the top of the ladder – this maintains the A-shape of the shelving unit.

4.  With 3M velcro strips, Heidi secured the shelves to the ladder.  The advantage to securing the shelves in this way is you can remove/adjust them whenever and however you like.

It’s a simple, yet highly creative approach to building a unique shelf for any room – kitchen, living room, family room, bathroom, bedroom, etc.

If you prefer to buy Heidi’s creation – you can do so here.
