Materials Needed:

  • two ladders of same height
  • plywood cut to varying lengths
  • paint (for ladders and shelves)

Step 1

Paint two identical-height ladders and let dry. Place them next to each other with their steps facing out.

Step 2

Measure for the shelves. You will need boards that span between the ladders and rest about six inches beyond each step. Have a home improvement store cut the boards to size. (They will be shorter at the top of the ladder, longer at the bottom.) Paint, then let dry.

Step 3

Set the boards on the steps.
