This rustic ladder is made using garden stakes from the Dollar Tree store, you can pick up garden stakes at most home supply stores also.

There are 6 in the pkg.

I used all of them. I glued 2 each together giving me 3 thicker ones in total. Used one for the rungs. I cut them 14″ wide.

The rungs are 14 ” long. I spaced the first one 8″ down the second 10″ down third and forth 12″ inches apart. I used finish nails to hammer it together.

The ladder is finished off with a tinted varnish stain to give it a rustic finish.
