I’m always trying to figure out ways to make my laundry room more functional, and I’ve seen ladders hanging from the ceiling in laundry rooms so I decided to give it a whirl.
My dad made the ladder, it’s 4 ft. x 17 in. with four 14 in. rungs, 1 ft. apart.
He came up with the idea to mount it to the wall with brackets, and did it in our last house, except this time we couldn’t find the right brackets, so we added 1 in. wood shims to make it fit. These brackets are 15 1/2 in. x 10 1.2 in.
I probably should have ordered the right size online, but I was anxious to get them up and you don’t even notice the shims after they were painted white.
And to maximize the hanging storage, I added some hooks and spray painted them to match the room.
And then I added a couple things below because being cute is important, too.
I don’t know about you, but it’s generally a party in my laundry room so…
Since I’m in this room daily, it really helps that it’s a little more organized and pretty! More updates on this room soon. 🙂
