My great find today!

raforAugust 27, 2011

I found an old wooden extension ladder on craigslist today and went right over and got it. It is 28 ft long!!! Actually I am going to separate the 2 pieces, hang one up high horizontally (so I can hang other things on it) and the other I am just leaning against the loft shelf I put in the glass house (though I am a little nervous climbing all the way up on an old wooden ladder!). Found a website that sells these for $15 dollars a rung. This one has 26 rungs! So it would have been uber expensive :)

Whoo Hooo! Nice find! That sounds like a honey! & great that you found it a home already! Hang 'em both horizontally if you're afraid it might not be sturdy enough. Wonderful for hanging onions from the garden ... or herbs & flowers. Jeanne S.

Good find! I have an old wooden extension ladder hanging in the garage. I had forgotten about it. It is heavy and I used it years ago to wash the second floor windows. Maybe I will get it out and do something with it. Thanks for the reminder.
