I had a half of a tall ladder, I had used the other half or side for something a few years back. I screwed barnwood pieces to the rungs, screwing them in from the underside of the rungs.
I added some D rings to the top part of the ladder so it can be secured to a wall.
I decided to leave it in its natural wood state--which doesn't happen often. It went to a new home this past weekend.
