First, small pieces of wood had to be added to the ladder where the shelves would eventually be placed, in order to make it level.

Next, the creative couple cut pieces of cheap wood according to their preferred shelf size.

The ladder was then given a fresh coat of charcoal-colored paint. A few items were also put on display to make sure everything was level and sturdy enough to hold decorations.

Next came the staining. The shelves each got a coat of black stain to give the unit a shabby chic feel. Then, the ladder was whitewashed to make it stand out a bit more.

In no time at all, this couple had an incredible living room upgrade!
