Upcycle Saturdays: Stylin' with The Leslieville Flea!

Decorating using vintage finds from Flea Markets has many advantages.  It's eco-friendly and employs all three of the R's ( reduce, re-use and recycle).  Flea finds are also easy on the pocketbook with most items being very budget conscious.  It's a great way to add personality and complete originality to your home.

Each week the Leslieville Flea will bring you a new way to decorate your home using Flea Market Finds.

This week we've chosen the unsuspecting wooden ladder.  You might wonder what to do with one of these if you are lucky enough to find one at The Leslieville Flea and take it home.

Here's a few functional and stylish ways that you can put them to use in your home.
 Stain and finish the ladder... then use it as a towel rack.

Leave it rugged and unfinished (with all the vintage paint still on it!)
and use it as a magazine rack.

If you are handy, you can add a shelf to the top and the ladder becomes the support.

Just a few ways to use a wooden ladder in your home...can you think of any more?
