Last week I shared with you my Farmhouse Shed Makeover, that was quite an undertaking!! Today I wanted to show you how I started decorating the outside of the shed with this Spring Upcycled Ladder Planter! The previous owners had left an old ladder with baskets on the front of the house. I knew I wanted to do something with it someday, so I saved it and found the perfect place for it on the side of our shed!! See how I took about an one hour to turn an old ladder into this fun planter for under $30.

How to Make a Ladder Planter:
I started with this old wooden ladder leaning up against the side of the front of our house…
I started by cleaning it off really well and then set up my HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer with my stain inside. You don’t need to thin the stain down for this unlike when you use this tool for painting.
Then I laid down a drop cloth and got to spraying. It comes out really easily, so I used my paint brush to help level off some areas with the brush so it coated evenly.
I let it dry for a bit, then we installed metal planters along the base of the ladder. Using a drill, we killed two birds with one stone and put the ladder on the shed where we wanted it and then drilled the planters onto the ladder and continued onto the shed (they were long screws).
The final step was to add the small black pots and flowers and enjoy our creation!
This project was so easy and took very little time to create. The HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer made it super easy to paint and clean up. Visit HomeRight.com for more great tools and ideas!

WOW. Love the hanging plant holder created from a well used ladder. Great idea for inside or outside use. Goes to show what a little creativity and work will get you. Could be used in a bathroom to hold incidentals, in a craft room for craft supplies, etc. Fabulous job.
Where did you find the pot holders? I’ve never seen any like these but would love some. Appreciate your response!
Hi Dixie! They sell them all over, but I got mine at Lowe’s near the indoor potted plant area. If you go into Lowe’s and show them this photo I’m sure they can show you 🙂
What a great idea I like this and your Delhias are so healthy thanks for sharing
