Okay, I am loving this project. I would never guessed you could turn a basic ladder into something this cool.
Italian site, Corriere della Serra, will show you how to hack together this DIY with a can of paint, a couple of brackets, and (of course) the ladder. The step-by-step instructions are not in English, but you'll get the gist from the detailed photos.
