Vintage Wooden Ladder Plant holder for farmhouse porch decor


I love repurposing items,
especially when I can use them for something cool.

An example of this is using a beat up 
wooden ladder as a plant holder on
my front porch.

Normally when I go to the flea market,
I go with an open mind
to find treasures that I can make into something else.

Sometimes I go with something specific in mind,
like finding an old ladder to make 
a holder for plants.

I don't have a huge porch but still 
love to plant flowers
and display them in different ways.



what to do with a vintage wooden ladder


On one of my trips to the Nashville Flea Market,
I found a very distressed wooden ladder.
It is definitely no longer useful as a ladder.
One step on a rung and it would break.

But what it lacks in sturdiness,
it makes up for in character.

On the same flea market trip
I found several well loved galvanized buckets
that were perfect for dropping a potted
plant in.



The back of this bucket already had a hanger.




It's almost like it was meant to 
hang from the ladder.




I found some other buckets,
that sadly did not already have hangers
on them.

So I used heavy duty zip ties
to hang them from the ladder rungs. 




The plants hide the zip ties.

I love the rustic charm of this ladder, plants
and buckets!

It goes right along with the rest of my front porch!
