a Home Interior makeover

Hi guys,
How many of you have that wooden ladder from Home Interiors from back in the mid 90s? I do. I love it, but it needed changed. I forgot to take a before pic, but picture it in your head. It was brown and was filled with those Willowtree Angels from Hallmark and specialty stores. Well, first I painted the entire ladder black. After it dried, I painted it a nice, country green. When that dried, I took my sander and sanded all of the edges, corners and in between spots. When done sanding, I took my Minwax Dark Walnut stain and painted the entire ladder with it. I then wiped it off and let it dry. I love how it turned out. Do you see the adorable sheep? My best bud Char from the Pickled Pepper Patch came over a few weeks ago to craft and she gave him to me. She knows how much I absolutely love sheep. Don't get rid of those old Home Interior things and look for them at g-sales and goodwill. They can be primmed up very easily. Make your sanded and dark walnut stain your 2 new best friends- hee hee. Have a great one, Kim

  2. Hi
    Love your redone ladder and all your prim goodies!!! Great sheep - I see he's on a spool - is the spool on a base or does it stand up well on it's own?

  3. Wow, it turned out beautiful.
    I have to get me some Minwax but no one sells it around me here - guess I will get it in Pennsylvania when we go in a couple weeks.
