I am sure many of you have a ladder or two getting in the way. Digging through a pile of 2×4’s and some extra PVC I put together a simple rack that allows them to be stored away. Got a little carried away and spray painted them. Hope you like.

Well, I would say it’s pretty functional! Thanks for the idea.

I am constantly looking at the ceiling in my garage, trying to figure out how I can use the space…sadly my garage door is hung about 3 inches below the ceiling, so there isn’t much room there, and I’ve allready filled up the rest.

Nice job.

Smart use of space. My ladder (little giant) is too big and heavy for that treatment in the space available… But thanks for the inspiration! Now that you’ve shared your idea maybe something will come to mind. And you can bet it will be ‘not pretty but functional!’
