 Errrrcccckkkkkk! 
Pull over! I saw another ladder I need!

I brought it home and white washed this old ladder with a mixture of white paint and water to give it a distressed beachy look...

I thought it would be great for display in my bedroom, 
leaning against the wall.

I added a basket for storage and see that cute little pillow, I made it using a wreath image from the  Graphics Fairy.

A great place to hang a pretty hat

and a big hook for hanging whatever.

I love the way this old ladder turned out!

Check out my bed tray in the corner, I've used it for years.

And that's my DIY fan cover photo display up on the wall.
