Repurpose ladders into birdhouse stands!

Repurposes 01.22.16
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 actually have two of them since I cut the ladder in half. The birds can sit on the rungs, so it's pretty neat!

    I love the look of these but don't they make the birds very vulnerable to preditors?

      Shirley They are in a fenced suburban yard. Since we don't have feral or loose cats in our area, this has not been a problem.

    Did you weigh it down so the wind doesn't blow it over?
