  3. Lora,
    Love your ladder display. It would look cool in my “junk” garden. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you liked it, Nancy!

  4. Really enjoyed your beautification effort. My 20 minutes digging in the dirt last week has resulted in awful poison ivy in numerous places. My pansies are in two pots on the porch for now!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Oh no, Kathy! That’s terrible:( Enjoy your pretty pots and lather up with anti-itch cream!

  5. Lora, I am so smitten with this idea. It’s so creative and tying them to the ladder with the rope is such a great use of added texture. Well done my friend!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Christy! It was fun to style it, and it brings such life to the ugly corner of our patio!

  6. Wow Lora,
    This is amazing, love all your galvanized buckets and how you used the ladder.

    I can’t believe all the great pieces you find. We never see goodies like you, lucky lady.

  7. Love the ladder idea Lora! I really need to tag along with you when your out scouting for “good” junk. Your displays are always a delight and give me tons of ideas!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m so glad they inspire your creative ideas, Michelle! Hopefully you’ll happen across some junk with great potential, too!

  8. Lora, this was such a unique way to achieve the topsy turvy effect to suit your space, and I absolutely love the ladder idea! I also picked up some really useful tips for hiding the dirt and using galvanized buckets as containers for gardening. Thanks for the great tutorial!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you found some ideas to use again, Crissy!

  9. Your recycled ladder idea is wonderful, Lora… the florals you chose with the galvanized buckets look lovely, and such a special twist on the Pinterest Challenge!

Pinned!
