I like ladders. Probably because I’m “vertically challenged.” I’ve learned to cope and have become quite handy at jumping, throwing heavy items or leveraging broomsticks to get things off the top shelf. It’s a skill.
As it is, I still like ladders. I think they’re awesome. Especially when you can use them in decor. My fantasy dream house comes complete with a Beauty & The Beast sized library with iron-spiral staircases and swivel ladders all around. But I really am into using ladders as bookshelves, towel racks, and just plain-old decoration.
And hey, if you need an extra stepping stool–you have one in house! Win-win.
