I am featuring another project from my friend Rose. While junking, I have passed by bunk bed ladders, now I am kicking myself for that! I can use power tools, but I am NOT a decorator. You will never see decorating advice on this blog. I rarely look at decorating magazines. I know I need to look at them more often to get knock off ideas. Rose decorates her house nicely. One of the many things I admire about her. Rose explains below how she repurposed this bunk bed ladder into this shelf….
I have found bunk beds at the curb several times and always pick them up. The headboard/foot boards are great for benches and the ladders are perfect for making these shelves! I’ve done 2 of these so far, this was the first, a Christmas present for my daughter. I used freebie black laminate shelves to make this one. Note; whenever you see cheap laminate bookcases at the curb, pick up the loose shelves if they aren’t water damaged. They’re perfect for projects like this.
