A Step Above~Dreamy White Ladder

I have been searching for a ladder for my kitchen.Not to display fabric on.But to place on top of my two cabinets.Oh I love using them for displaying fabric.But I already have two of those.Finding a ladder was not easy.I needed the right size.And I finally found one.

Love how this joins my two cabinets together.Ignore the inner cabinets.I still have not finished that.I will when my daughter goes back to school.
See that old milk cooler/tin?

I added these stick on letters and numbers.Sanded them down and added some antiquing.

My light fixture was originally a brass fixture with glass inserts.I took all the glass off spray painted it and added a little bling.Cost was 10.00.I had to shorten it a bit too.

To make the holders look like candles I added some hot glue drips and antiqued each of them.Cost was free I had everything I needed.

A wood box filled with dried hydrangeas and an old plate.Next to it a white bowl and pitcher.
I may have to adjust my window.Not sure yet.Still playing around.

    That ladder is such a great, original idea! Love the finish and how you have added that great light fixture too. I’ve been a kitchen designer for 24 years and I am very impressed! Visiting from Faded Charm. I am your newest follower.

    I love the idea of using a ladder like that! How creative you are to think of that. It adds such a unique touch. That light fixture caught my eye too. Love the way you changed it up.

    What a clever idea! Love the way it looks, and you’ve added just the perfect accents. If you’d not said anything I’d have thought the light fixture came that way! Amazing, you did a fabulous job!

    What a pretty kitchen!
    I love how you’ve repurposed the items in your kitchen-the ladder, milk tin, and light fixture, and made them perfectly unique to your design.

    That’s a great idea (bunches of great ideas as a matter of fact). Where would I begin? It’s all very creative and really neat. I have a little light not too far from yours – I like your idea enough to see about taking it to new looks … mine’s in the hallway … it could use some sprucing up!

    Great post – came by way of Liz’s Time Travel Thursday – Enjoyed my visit, Thanks

    I have always known that Life Isn’t Fair, but that you have found not 1, but 3 ladders is amazing. I have been looking for a ladder for the longest time. I LOVE what you did with the ladder. I actually want one to hang high across the top of my closet to hang my purses.

    I love your entire look!

  11. says

    I love love love that ladder! I’m a ladder freak too and use them wherever I can. Your whole area there looks really pretty and that chandelier is to die for! Wonderful job!

    Hi Anne – LOVE the ladder, and the look of your kitchen. I just wanted to say congrats on your feature at Cowgirl Up!

    This is an incredible idea. The ladder is so clever, as is the light redo. Wow! Is the window hung from the ladder. It looks great! I’m pinning this. And I’m now following.

    What a great idea, I’ve been looking at my entry light since we moved here 3 years ago, wondering what I could do with it. I love your idea and will do a copy cat. Hugs ~ Mary

  17. says

    Amazing, love it all!! I have a huge space above my cabinets and have had to get creative with the decorating. I currently have several vintage windows up there.
    Love your “make do” with the brass light fixture – very clever!!

    p.s. I’m following you :)
