My trellis ladder

Posted by lady_alicia ( on

I had these spindles and didn't know what to do with them and I needed a trellis for my Morning Glory's to trail up. My husband had two pieces of wood that were the same size, no cutting needed, so I made a ladder. I'm going to make another one in the spring, but it will be much nicer. This one I threw together in a pinch. Unfortunately, baby bunnies in my yard nibbled my Morning Glories away, so they didn't do much trailing this summer. Next year I'll be more prepared for them! :))

Hope these pics work....

RE: My trellis ladder

That was so clever of you. Would of never thought to use spindles...I threw some away not long ago...did you screw them into the 2 pieces of wood? I've never even used a drill or power saw...but my daughter can/does. I love ladders for decor...A few years ago, I only thought of ladders as work-related...GardenWeb changed my thinking.

RE: My trellis ladder

Thanks joannegreco and toomuchglass! I had fun doing it.

And Ashli, I didn't screw them in. I wanted to, to do it right, but I was in a hurry to get it done, so I used Liquid Nails. Believe it or not, it held up all summer. In the spring I am going to screw them in because I'm sure the Liquid Nails won't last another summer. :) And I want to make another one, maybe decorate it for inside the house or something. I've had these spindles for forever and people gave me lots of good ideas, but I just never got around to doing anything with them until now. Usually I'm not that creative in thinking. I have to "steal" everyone else's ideas off of here. :) Thank goodness for T2T!
