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.

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!
