I have been wanting a decorative ladder for so long, I couldn’t help making one. I saw ladders everywhere, on blogs, Pinterest, shops… everywhere! If you like something, then it seems you attract it… or maybe it is because you are more aware and then you can see it. It is the same as when you are pregnant, you see bellies all around!
Well, the thing is that I wanted a ladder, yes or yes, but I was not willing to spend the amount of money shops were asking for one. Then, what can a DIY girl do? Make one!
So one day I woke up and headed to the shop and bought two wood strips and a wooden dowel. As soon as I reached home, I made some measurements and cut the dowel into four pieces, and I also made four holes on the wood strips.
The girls happily helped me to sand the wood.
Then it was time to dye them with the “Miracle Liquid” as I call it, all sides and the dowels too.
I didn’t want to see the holes at the sides of the ladder, and I decided to use some sawdust mixed with glue to cover them.
Look at that color!! Love it, but I wanted a weathered look for it. Nothing difficult, you can check the how to.
Much better for my taste. Once all the wood was weathered, I glued all together and it was done!
Time to place the throw aways and relax with a cup of tea. But I had to keep an eye on it because the girls asked me if they could climb… no, pretty girls, not for climbing, just for displaying and styling. But we can make a pompom garland and place it on the top if you like. Then they were happy.
I like so much the color it has.
I hope you like the ladder too!
