I told you here about my fun day last Friday junking and antiquing.
When I was at Camas Antiques I saw this old wooden ladder.
I knew I wanted it to come home with me, but wondered if the Hubs would think I was crazy.
So, I called him, (he was still out of town at the time), and I think his words went something like this, “Huhhhhh??? Do you really want an old ladder? Well, I haven’t gotten you a surprise yet, so get yourself the ladder if that’s what you really want.” To which I replied, “Yippee!”
I’m so glad all my blogger friends understand how old, chippy, wooden ladders are très chic décor!
So here’s mine…
Now, look at the picture below and see if you can see something different in this picture than in the one at the top of the page…
Yes, I gave my little wooden paddle a makeover!
And yes it has P.E.I. on it, in honor of Prince Edward Island, my mama’s birthplace.
Do you like the before or after better?
I also picked up a couple more Homer Laughlin custard cups at the antique store. Sometimes I also find them at Goodwill. There’s something so homey about their chunky sturdiness. They make a good soup cup for baby granddaughter’s favorite tomato soup.
Lastly, a blue and white ticking pillow came home with me from Camas Antiques too.
My vintage school chair needed it.
I’m looking forward to Friday, the Hubs is home, and it’s our day off together!
