Geneva, from A Pair & A Spare, recently moved into a new studio space, and has been working through a long list of DIYs to make the space just right. She found an old ladder her builder had left behind and got to work on one of the projects she had in mind — a ladder wardrobe. She only spent $9 on the total project, and she plans to use it for storing work-in-progress DIY projects and pieces waiting to be photographed.
