Revamp on a ladder

Calvert Slipcovered Sofa, Down-Blend Cushions, Twill Camel

My hasband was thumbing through my Pottery Barn catalog and came across this page and said, "I know what you can do!  Do you see anything that we have?"

Indeed I did!  I believe my husband got the ladder from his parents.


Old and not sturdy to use. 

You can see the abuse it took.

I painted the ladder white

Sanded the edges to look distressed.

After I sanded the ladder I had some leftover wood stain from other projests that I used to darken the wood.

I am thinking of making the ladder darker.  What do you think keep or darken?

Friday Family Night Party

Every Friday I will host a Family Night.

It is FRIDAY!!  I can't believe how quick the week went....

Tonight was so much fun.  I didn't know what we were going to eat and after I cleaned out my freezer and fridge from the Organizational Challenge I saw bacon and got hungry.  My husband came home and we started talking about, "What's for Dinner?" drill.  Then he said what about breakfast?  YEAH!  I love him. 

Family Night for the Gomez family was breakfast for dinner followed by flashcards and reading before bedtime.  It was a hit with the kids!

You become a follower and I will follow you.
