I Want This Wednesday

I really really want an apple picking ladder.  That seems crazy, I know.  In fact, I admit that I have no idea what I would do with it.  Actually, it's more like I have too many ideas about what I could do with it.

I love the idea of using one as a shelf just about as much as I would love to have it in our guest bathroom holding hand towels.  I can also see using two of them on either side with shelves in between the rungs to create a little waist high bookcase or even a three shelf version to go under a window.  I could use one as a table top, covering it with glass and attaching legs, or I could use the ladders as the legs and find an old door for the table top.

Ahhh, so many options, such a ridiculous wish for now.  Can you imagine the shipping fee to send a LADDER from Virginia to Chicago?  Maybe I'll scout the tri-state area for orchards with old ladders they might be willing to sell.  Next summer though.  I've got a bit on my plate for now.


  1. You are so creative! My first thought was, where is she going to store an apple ladder when she's not using it to pick Chicago! Ah, I would have never come up with acutally *using* it in the house! When you find your apple ladder, you must post pictures! oh, and my vote is for the shelf in the guest bathroom!

  2. I love the picture of the ladder in the bathroom also. You are so creative, Hanna!

  3. I definitely think the ladder is a great piece. And having used one in Maryland last year for the actual purpose, I could definitely see the appeal! I think your bathroom idea is great. Or I could imagine it in an entryway as a place to put coats, scarves, etc in the winter. I also think you could put it in a bedroom for something similar.
