This blog post aims to give you an idea, about what you can do with an old wooden ladder that is not being used any longer. Before you decide to get rid of it, keep in mind that there are many ways to make something new out of something old. So why not make a nice shelf with it for your child's bedroom?

Instead, it is better to use grey colour (in any shade preffered). Grey becomes a canvas that gets illuminated in an impressive way if you choose decorative objects, carpets and curtains in a bright colour.
