Yayy! I have my ladder all finished and placed for now in my little prim den!
So, as promised here are a couple of pics of it. I chose to paint it black and then stained it and lightly sanded it for a slightly more worn look.For a quick and easy budget project I am pretty pleased with it.
For anyone who might be interested in making one, it is straightforward.
I cut two 5 ft lengths of 2x1 and then cut 4 rungs from the remaining wood which are about 12" wide. I just measured out a space between each rung of approx 12", glued them in place on one side, then nailed them in (with hubby's help of course!). You could use dowels for the rungs if you want but I was using up what was to hand and it's only for decorative purposes not for climbing on!
So now I'm ready to stitch up some little items and start on my next project!
Thanks to everyone for taking the time to read my blog and for those who have just recently visited for the first time a very warm welcome. I love to hear from you and if you have a blog let me know so I can visit you too!
