We stumbled upon these ladders on FreeCycle (a website which people offer free stuff for collection) now I wasn’t fully sure what to expect as the description was pretty vague, so we took a gamble.
On first sight the ladders were a little worse for wear, covered in countless paint splashes and tied together with a bit of old string. But I knew exactly what transformation I had in mind for them.
I have stripped, primed and painted them which is always a bit tiresome (I hate waiting for paint to dry) but the gratification of knowing I’ve made them over, makes it worthwhile.
The moment I took them up to my craft room, I had this sudden urge to create something beautiful and to include some of my most favourite and treasured possessions.
So here we have the finished result.
