I believe his exact words were: “I found a ladder and brought it home for you”
I can’t be sure though…he lost me at ladder as my mind begin to embrace this new addition to my little rustic garden
My husband is my superhero!
I’ve…we’ve been looking for old wooden ladders for years. We see them from time to time at flea markets and antique shops, but I don’t believe those people really want to sell them…their prices are outrageous.
can you believe someone was actually throwing away a perfectly good wooden ladder?
They must not shop at the same flea markets I do or they would know that they could’ve gotten some bucks for their ladder. Oh well…too late, it’s mine now.
Of course I knew just where to put it and once it was in position all that was left was to add some junk
my daughter found and old apple corer at an estate sale and thought I might have a place for it
she’s one smart cookie! and I love that she thinks of me when she sees rusted metal
I feel so loved.
I only had a spec of time to get some things on it, the sun was going down and I would soon loose my light.
I wanted to take some photos and share with you before that happened.
That west sun was not helping with the shadows.
just in case I was dreaming, I ran out the next morning to see if it was really there
It was! and the lighting was much softer in the morning shade
I have visions of ivy snaking it’s way up the ladder, adding little bird houses perched here and there, a hanging fern and some other funky treasures as I collect more over time.
more ideas are brewing in my head about some awesome containers for plants
more on that at a later date.
Still painting…but it’s looking good!
I distressed one cabinet door and applied the dark wax just so I could confirm that I was going in the right direction. Wow! Yes…It looks great!
Pictures coming soon!
