This huge ladder almost didn’t make the move from the old house to this one. Finding a place to store it until I got around to restyling it was a big consideration.
Ultimately I couldn’t stand leaving it behind and I am so glad I didn’t. These ladders were finished in an afternoon. Really! Sheesh! Sometimes I can talk myself out of starting a project when I think it will be bigger than it actually turns out to be.
The ladder was about 16 feet long. Keeping the placement of the rungs in mind, I cut three smaller ladders as close to the same size as possible. They are the perfect height for displaying quilts and other vintage linens, or they can be propped in a bathroom as a towel rack.
A quick dry-brushing of white paint…
…brought out their shabby chic personality.
These ladders will be heading to Quality Outdoor Design in Winfield, Kansas this week.
