Welcome to the first of many mini posts by yours truly. These posts will be just quick snip it blogs where I will show you how to do something really quickly or give you 5 second advice. This post is how I transformed an ugly ladder into a beautiful piece for my living room.
Okay so my friend Reva found this ladder. Look how ugly it is! She figured I could do something with it! 🙂 I was SO excited!! Only diyer’s get excited about gross things like this!
Obviously the first thing that needed to be done was painting it with some lovely chalk paint. I had to wait until the children went to bed. I happily watched The Hobbit while my hubby fell asleep on the couch (it was pretty late).
I bought these adorable (and cheap) letters at Walmart and I decided to paint them pink. I couldn’t get any pictures of me painting these ones, because I was too busy defending my letters from toddler hands. He wanted to help so badly as you can tell by the picture. He kept pointing at the letters and saying “E”! He is very proud of himself for knowing the letter “E”…oh sorry…got sidetracked. Back to the project.
I glued the letters onto the ladder with a hot glue gun.
And that’s it!
I would love to eventually add some more pretty decorations or something onto the ladder, but I can’t decide yet.
