Anyways, one project I found on Pinterest was this:
How easy is that? All it is is an old ladder hung on the wall with some L brackets & decorated with a few knick knacks! I knew exactly where I could get an old ladder too. I just had to wait until I went home.
Fast Forward to Thanksgiving: Here is the conversation:
Me: "Hey Dad, do you have an old wooden ladder that you don't use any more?"
Dad: "Why? What do you want it for?"
Me: "Just a decorating idea- Can you chop it down to around 5 feet?"
Dad: "Okay, whatever. (I could see he was slightly confused as to what I was doing)"
Dad went to his shed & found his old wooden ladder, had me decide what section I wanted- I opted for the middle section that had some rusty metal hardware, but no broken rungs. It was covered in bird poop though...Nothing a little scrubbing couldn't fix.
After getting it back to South Dakota, I put the husband to work in mounting my ladder on the wall. I loved it, even without decorations on it! It was perfect! Obviously now its Christmas time, so I decorated it with Christmas knick knacks. :) Duh. Here is the final result:
I love it! It works perfectly with the wall decal I had up. This spot had been intended for a nice framed family photo we had done 2 summers ago. But since we had those awesome pictures taken, we have added little miss H & I didn't feel right paying big moolah to have a canvas print made of just the 4 of us when we have a new precious little one (she's nearly 10 months now, can you believe it?!). So the ladder is perfect. I took some great fall photos of all 3 littles & I plan on framing those & putting them on the shelf after Christmas is over. So, what Pinterest projects have you completed??
