Hello friends! I hope you’ve had a great start to the new year. Have you made any resolutions? I’ve got a bunch of goals for 2016 which I’ll share later on but one thing you will be seeing from me this year is a lot more of my home because (surprisingly) two of the most popular posts from 2015 included these two (1, 2) and I’ve got so many other little, and not so little, projects on the go which I’m dying to show you.

I’m starting off with a really simple idea that I absolutely love which is this vintage ladder shelf that’s now right by my front door.

Ladder shelf in the entranceWhen I moved into my new place, I vouched to make it easy to clean. Sure, aesthetics are important but if it’s not practical too it will drive you crazy.

A mound of shoes kept stacking up by the front door, as they do, and shoes are such a pain to put away and even more of a pain to clean around so I wanted to get them off the floor without spending excessive amounts of money.

All you really need is an old ladder and two planks of wood. I bought the ladder at a flea market in Lutry and actually found the planks of wood while on a run in a forest near my house so this project cost a total of 40 CHF (about $40)! Winning!

Welcome home!There are so many ways you could make this project your own and if you can’t find a vintage ladder, buy a cheap one and paint it a snazzy colour. How would you style a ladder shelf? xS
