    Im redecorating my bathroom and have a very similar ladder/basket set up. I want to put it over the toilet and have it rest on a small ledge but need to secure it to the wall as so not to tip over. Do you have any suggestions for securing it?

      There are many shaped brackets at the hardware store that might fit your needs, its hard for me to know exactly without seeing the bathroom. L- brackets are ones we use a lot for those purposes!
