i had been looking for one of these old wooden  step ladders ever since i saw how a woman had redone her's over
at beyond the picket fence. she ended up using hers to hold wine bottles, i had something else in mind. and there it was, at the thrift store. sometimes...
i think i am lucky. i do find alot of stuff at our neighborhood shop. I think the key is you just have to visit it alot as its always hit or miss. she was mine for $3.99, i could not
wait to get her home and start the project.

shes looking kinda sad
intermediate stage...

and the after reveal...
i added a few numbers to jazz her up a little

i decided that i would use it in my newly remodeled bathroom...


  1. That's way cute! I'm going to be on the lookout for a old ladder now :-)

  2. You're so dang creative! ;) I love it! We have one we use as a nightstand in the guest bedroom but I love your idea. Someday when I have a big soaker tub, this will be my inspiration for right beside it. :)
