Saving our landfills one ladder at a time…

Old wooden ladders waiting for trash pickup day always seem to find their way into my car and home with me.  Yesterday on the way to my son’s football practice, this cute wooden ladder was laying by the curb for trash pickup.  So after I  took him to practice (my kids think it’s mortifying when I pick stuff up from the side of the road) I went back and got it. Today I gave it a “whitewashed” paint job and glazed it.  I love how it turned out.  I think it would be so pretty in a bathroom with towels hanging on it or in a corner holding books and knick knacks.  Hopefully someone else will too and it will follow them home!
