This is not something that hasn't already be done. Ladder decor has been around in country homes for many, many years. I just wanted to post some pics of the one that I've had around for a while now. Of course I don't have a pic of it in it's natural color, but that isn't too hard to picture, now is it?
Here it is, now, after I gave it a white, dry brush, aging.
We have really high ceilings and a lot of wall space so, this spot is the perfect place to hang a shelf for some little displays.
And compliments our decor.
We used to have a beautiful, early 1800's, red stenciled, sled hanging in it's place...but, with our intentions to move south I decided to part with it, last year, just after Christmas. I didn't think we'd be here for another Holiday season..."waaah" I miss it, now! Oh, the photo ops it could have had!!!
Well, I'm content with the replacement and even happier that it was FREE :)
Here's a few more of my photo, practice shots from today's shoot....still can't wait for my new camera!
HATE the pic...HATE my camera...but, I do love my little "sampler." Every time I look at it I wonder how I ever did it. It's a teenie tiny, 1 1/2" x 1 1/4" in size!
A close up of my milk glass vase that I painted and distressed. I like it better, now.
The vintage bottle holds pearls from "Grandma's" broken necklaces.
Gonna go make a "Kissing Ball"....I'm in a festive mood!
Love, Hugs and Kisses,
