Vertical Gardening with a Repurposed Ladder

I fell in love with this old ladder, and turned it into a vertical garden. I painted small clay pots, then drilled holes in the ladder steps where I wanted the pots to sit. Using a bolt, nut, and bent washer to allow for drainage, I attached the pots so they wouldn't blow off the ladder in the wind. And then I got to planting! It created visual interest on my patio, and a practical planting solution for a small space. You can check out the details, and more repurposed projects at http://www.differentshadesofgreen.com/2011/0.... Thanks for looking! :)
