Turn a Ladder-Back Chair into a Bathroom Shelf

by on Dec 13, 2010

A blue bathroom area has a blue towel and accessories on a shelf.

A flea market find is turned into a ladder bathroom shelf in 5 easy steps. (Note the cheeky faucet handles on top.) A little too ‘cute’? Maybe, but I’m kinda grooving on its simple ingenuity. 

Here are the supplies we’d need to make one:


  • Ladder-back chair
  • Saw
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Screws
  • Screw driver
  • Faucet handles
  • Bumper pads


For the entire tute, head on over to BHG.
