When one wishes to hang art on a high stairwell wall and only having ladders at hand one might ask themselves, “How do I do that when the ladder needs a level platform but/and there are stairs?”
Well, you build one of these:
I use a couple of screws to secure it to the stair (yes, that means I put a hole in the stair, which is OK because we plan on repairing/refinishing them) and then the ladder goes on top:
Now, I can reach those spots that’d otherwise be impossible without some sort of scaffolding:
Easy to unscrew and move on any other portion of the stairs as needed. Also easy to store away for future use.
