Repurpose ladders into birdhouse stands!

For the Garden 12.08.14
Mount birdhouses on old ladders to create functional garden accents. I painted the ladders and the birdhouses in the same barn red to make them a grouping. They bring color to a shady area covered with ivy. Best of all, they are occupied!

    I inherited a plain old rung ladder and sawed it in half. I hung an old rustic bird feeder at the top and have it in the middle of my lilac sprouts. Looks awesome!

    I actually have two of them since I cut the ladder in half. The birds can sit on the rungs, so it's pretty neat!
