|Here it is after I cut it in half & dragged it inside to paint|
After sawing it into three smaller, more manageable pieces I set about painting it. Right now I do all of my painting outside of my office, in our hallway, right by the front door. Living near Chicago makes painting in my garage not a possibility...at least not until April or May....( I hate the cold)...
I told my friend what my idea was & once she told me the color she wanted I just went with it......
|Looking down the rungs...|
After I was finally done painting I used some graphics from The Graphic's Fairy & a few others that I had & put them on the ladder to give it a little personality.
|You can see the different colors & layers of paint that I used....old white, paris grey, a pale yellow,and a tan & a cream that I hand mixed......|
|I love the script on this part...|
|I sanded & distressed it so parts of the original black paint can be seen in some spots..|

And you know what?.....I still have the third part of the ladder in my garage...it looks like a little step ladder now......Now I just have to make up my mind on what I want to do with it :)
