This project may be too simple to even blog about, but… what can I say here…
You can make an old ladder garden arbour… in minutes!
Desperately needing a break from pulling weeds in the hot sun, my eyes wandered to the gate. It looked lonely. I’ve never loved the look of a chain link fence much, and had some ideas on how I could jazz it up. BUT I really love looking through it. It’s a killer view out there and there’s rarely people in the park.
Hmmm… what could I do to just enhance what was already there instead?
So I propped up the ladders on either side of the gate to think.
… well, that was easy.
In case you’re wondering, I can walk through it just fine. And if I ever desired a taller opening, I can always find a longer ladder for the right side.
The ladders are attached to the fence with twine. Sturdy as ever. I may get zip strips later, but the twine worked.
And now I have a place for the new wisteria!
I also planted sweet peas all along the chain link fence.
I like it! I like it a lot.
Rustic shed, meet your new friend, old ladder arbour.
I think this is going to be the beginning of a wonderful new friendship…
