Anytime something old can be repurposed as something useful or pretty, I get excited. I really got excited when I found these old ladders being used in a variety of ways for garden art. You may think that just because a wooden ladder has become wobbly and unsafe to climb on means it’s time to toss it. Not so!
I recently threw away an old wooden ladder and now I’m kicking myself for it. You can bet I’ll be on the lookout for another one that has outlived its usefulness as a typical ladder but can instead be turned into one of these delightful art forms.
Whether you decide to paint yours or leave it plain, you’re sure to find inspiration when look through this list of ways that old ladders can be put to new use.
