Handmade Home : UPCYCLE DIY : ladder magazine rack...

in true Handmade Home fashion, i'm making a new use out of out of something old that had not been used for that purpose before... found this old wooden ladder in a trash pile...i cleaned it and sanded it down (so i wouldn't get any splinters from handling it)... then i stood it up against a wall and draped magazines over each rung of the ladder...

i love the look of the rough wood against the smooth surface of a slick mag!

the great height of the ladder standing vertically against the wall makes for a dramatic and interesting piece of "furniture", full of weathered-charm & character!

voila! a REUSED ladder turned into an UPCYCLED magazine rack!
