I’m excited to share another great submission by one of my favorite DIY Inspired readers, Lilly Meehan from Ventura California.  Lilly is no stranger to DIY projects.  She has submitted some great ones in the past.  This time she shares a fun and vibrant upcycled ladder that she uses outside for a succulent display.  She chose to paint it an eye-catching purple.  I think she did a fabulous job!

Here’s what Lilly said about this project:

“An old ladder that was used in my Dad’s contracting business had become too rickety to use safely. After adding plywood shelves and carefully preserving the V & L stencil (the name of my Dad’s business) it was painted in exterior latex paint, plus sprayed with a coat of clear gloss.  The shelves were tied down with twine.  Colorful pots were planted with a variety of succulents with polished stones covering any exposed potting soil.  A new piece of yard art, with the sentimental value of being from my Dad’s business, is now the home of a beautiful succulent garden.”
