I too have used a rickety old wooden stepladder to optimise the little sunny spot in my garden for a high-rise herb garden. I used treated pine decking boards to create shelves - which also stabilised the ladder.
Suspended in the huge bottlebrush behind is another old wooden ladder from which I have hung brass lanterns. Birds and the local possum enjoy climbing and perching on it too!!

I use an old ladder as a christmas tree. I wrap it with lights and hang baubles off of it. Its a real crowd pleaser
