Metal Ladder Repurposed...Hook Rack/Storage

I bought this metal ladder at an occasional store a while back.  I was thinking it would be great for display at shows.

Until I realized my son needed some "hooks" in his room. So I flipped it upside down and backwards...

...and hung it on his wall.

I just used a little wire to hang it...

...which also made a great spot to display some art work.

A bike basket tied on with twine is a great place to stash some books.

I made this little canvas chalkboard by painting over an old faded canvas picture with gray paint and then with chalkboard paint.  Great to add a message for our little "Jedi".

I think I found the perfect re-purpose.  Functional and fun.  He LOVES it :)

Thanks for stopping by!!
