Old wooden ladders


I have two very old wooden ladders my grandfather made in the 1940's. They are painted with red barn paint. I want to preserve them but not sure how to proceed. The wood is dry and the paint is most likely oil-lead-based. They have been stored in the barn. I don't see any termite damage or wood rot/decay. I would like to hang pictures of of the 6 ft ladder and baskets from the 4 ft. Any advice on how to proceed?
