I've been noticing ladders lately, and not just because Jason's been using one to climb up and fix the soffits on our roof.
I've noticed that I like when people incorporate old wooden ladders into their decorating.
I first noticed it when I discovered one of my favorite blogs, Philigry. Katie has an old ladder just propped up against a wall in her living room. I like how simple it is.

I set off on a mission to find a ladder for my living room, but I wasn't paying $179. Jason and I came across a great ladder at an antique store around the corner from our house called Barn House.
We placed it behind a leather chair in our family room and I draped an antique flag over it.
I'm reallly loving how it looks with the flag as a backdrop behind the chair.

But one of my favorites, and probably one that Jason and I will soon copy is here, where the ladder is turned sideways and used as a shelf. I love it.
