Repurpose ladders into birdhouse stands!

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!

    A friend of mine took an old ladder and old dresser drawers and nailed them to the steps, and has hen and chickens planted in them along with some other great plants, they are staggered up the ladder and look really nice with "old" glass and metal drawer pulls.

    Sounds lovely, Carol! I have another old ladder - now I'll have to keep my eyes out for some old dresser drawers!
