Happy Saturday! Finding motivation to tackle half started projects can be difficult for me, but luckily this month I only work 4 days a week due to random appointments and a weekend getaway I'm going on with Brent for our 4th anniversary here in a few weeks. This leaves me an extra day to bust out all the necessary tools and not be stressed about cleaning up the mess I'm bound to make! This weekend I turned an old painters ladder into a stand by simply adding some wood. I used left over lath from my A/C unit cover project and paint/stain I already had, making this project FREE! It was my intention over a year ago when I found this ladder at a flea market to turn it into a stand, but it took a backseat to more important projects. Two years of owning our home and I finally feel like the decorating can begin.
Here is how the ladder appeared before I added a shelf. It wasn't the safest thing to have a lamp sit on.
And here is the after. I think I did a fairly good job of layer paints and stains to match the original rustic/distressed paint. Now, time to decorate it with pumpkins!
