Steppin' Up

It's Tuesday again! This will be my third time or so in linking up to Kimm at Reinvented...trash to Treasure!

My find this week is a little ladder that I found at the Salvation Army store for 99 cents. This was the source of the wine rack and magazine holder I've shown as well. So, the ladder started out plain brown wood - a little country looking.

The wall I hung it on needed it to have a little color. When I tried it all white - it stuck out too much. So, I used a little golden/peachy paint with a sponge on the face of it and some rub on lettering. The lettering made it feel personal and perfect for these pictures of the kids. Now - the pictures are printed off on card stock and then decoupaged. I need to do another coat. I wanted them to look old-fashioned, antiqued. What do you think?


  1. I love this idea. I have an old ladder that I bought for hanging towels but now I am liking this idea. Thanks.

  2. What a COOL idea!!! I love this. I'm saving this post. Totally.


  3. Great idea and love the finished project!! Caaaute!

  4. A picture frame! What a great idea.

  5. Malany! These are so awesome! What a creative way to use this ladder. Did you rub on the letters or is this vinyl? Perfection. Simply. Thanks, also, for signing on for the party! I am so excited to see everyone's stuff! So much fun!

    Have a great Tuesday!


  6. Love it,, and I passed up a free ladder this past weekend,, ughh!
