Deck Railing Upcycled to Porch Ladder

$5.00
15 Minutes
Easy

Our DD and SIL bought a foreclosure that needed a ton of work and as they yanked down the railings I envisioned the perfect place for one of the sections. I have a reputation for seeing the unseen when it comes to upcycles....especially when others see it as junk.

I asked them to set aside one section so I could paint it and make it into a decorative ladder.

I sanded it just enough to take off the biggest flaking pieces of paint. I left just enough to be able to distress it after it was painted.

I used a rock and sanding sponge to take off just enough to keep it authentic.
