When you open your mind to the world of creativity available to you in interior design the concepts you can come up with knows no bounds!

A simple, exciting and chic way to create more storage space in your home while creating a unique decorating feature is to incorporate a ladder! You do not need to hold a degree in interior design to do this, all you need is to open up that part of you that is waiting to spill out creativity, we all have this ability inside of us!

So you need a new way to get storage or shelf space that is cheap?? There are many ways in which you can do this, let's have a look!

Firstly we have a simple wooden step ladder with a few planks of wood used to create an all purpose shelf of a shabby chic nature. This is what re-purposing and recycling is all about! With a few simple things you can create something so chic and wonderful!
