My parents are expert garage salers. My brother and sisters and I know if we are looking for something we can enlist our parents in our treasure hunt. They almost always find what we are looking for. I had told my parents I was looking for a wooden ladder to use to display quilts. Lucky me they found one. It was old and needed a little TLC and it took a while to make it to the top of my to do list. I’m embarrassed to say that it was more than a year before I got around to it. But with the redo of the living room I was feeling motivated. I removed all the stickers that were on it. I sanded it down and removed all the paint drops on it.
Then I spray painted it. I started with a lighter aqua. I was lovin’ it. But then Hubby said, “Could you pick a more girly color?” (Yes, I could, I could have picked pink) Anna thought I was adding too many different colors of blue in my living room. She and I but heads on this a lot. Mostly because I feel you can never have enough color. But to keep the family happy I changed to seaside blue.
I set it up in the living room with some bright happy quilts. Anna’s friends thought it was darling so I have not had complaints that I added even more color. I’m loving the splash of life it adds. I’m linking up with Sarah for a little Whoop Whoop on this long over due finish.
