might have been a cheat but this has been added to over 2700 idea books! With marble tiles on bath floor and walls, I didn't want to add bolted shelves. This is it. Any other ideas like this?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A beat-up wooden ladder leaned casually against the wall is transformed into a unique display for blankets and other textiles.
Jonathan Baker added this to Masculine Upgrade: Ladders in the Home
I love how this weathered ladder acts as a practical towel rack while also being the focal point of the washroom. It stands out both in color separation, as well as for its vertical height. And … the fact that the towels look like they came out of a YMCA circa 1955 only adds to the allure of this room.
Ronique Gibson added this to 7 Everyday Ways for Going Greener at Home
Reuse: Repurposing is another good way to use green practices at home. Old tables, doors, and even ladders can be used as kitchen islands, headboards or towel racks. An antique chair that sits in the garage can be reupholstered and used again, saving the materials and energy needed to make a new one.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Vintage Style: General Store Decor
Vintage grain sacks and antique ironing cloths inject a feeling nostalgia and history into the room. Notice the chair seat has also been reupholstered with a vintage grain sack.
Natalie Myers added this to 12 Ways to Rethink the Ladder
This vintage ladder is a perfect display option for grain-sack linens. The combo, in context with the other antique market finds throughout the room, conjure up a casual and relaxed yet tastefully accented shabby chic/country feel.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Bathroom Storage: Where to Keep the Towels
If you’re gunning for an extra element of interest, think ladders. The rungs provide excellent spots for both hanging and display. This is a slight cheat seeing as this ladder is shown in a living space, but it could be easily replicated in the bathroom.
We've seen wooden ladders all over the house, hanging from chains to become patinaed potracks and transformed into towel racks when propped against a wall. Old paint splatters add to their appeal. Also repurposed in this room: A burlap bag from France has become seat upholstery on the armchair.
Keep an open mind. Sometimes the most eye-catching décor comes from using an everyday object in a new way. Major retailers now offer apothecary-style cabinets and "aged" wood furniture at a steep markup from the original vintage versions. Why not be ahead of the curve and make your own style statement with a vintage find? Here are a few ideas to get you started:• Use a collection of vintage doorknobs or drawer pulls as coat hooks.• Lean an old wooden ladder against the wall to hold tea towels in the kitchen.• A vintage garden gate can become a one-of-a-kind headboard.• Pile twinkle lights into an antique birdcage and suspend from the ceiling for a quirky light fixture.
Display idea: Old ladder Useful for: The textile designerVintage ladders commonly find homes in bathrooms holding extra towels, but the same idea could be applied to the studio as well. Drape fabrics or textiles across the rungs for a convenient storage and display solution. And when you need to redecorate, you can easily move the ladder around without disturbing the display.

Those old ladders, if in good shape, could become our overhead pot racks. Clean them up, paint or stain/finish them, and BAM
