Ladder, Lavender & Lanterns

Look at all my junk on the side of my house…

I found an old metal ladder.
I took the back part off that was broken by using a sledge hammer.
I spray painted it white and then sanded it to give it a little wear.
I had an empty wall near the fireplace that could use something long and skinny.
It works as a nice backdrop for the small chair and end table.
The lavender in the basket coordinates with the lavender topiaries.
The lanterns were purchased about 8 years ago at Kirkland Home.
I still use them all the time.
A simple display…
A match box hangs from an iron hook. It holds greenery in the warmer months.

Love that!!! Again, you're just so darn clever. I would never have thought to create something like that. Wish I could think outside of the box as well as you. That is a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e! Where did you buy your lavendar? Is it real?

What a great idea to take off the other side. I have a huge cherry picking ladder in the shed waiting for me to do something with it. Have a wonderful Mother's Day.

I would never have thought that an old metal ladder could turn out so well. I'm sure I would have just passed it up. Looks great.

I am in love with your ladder and the little basket filled with lavender. I have wanted a ladder for a long time, but never had a place to put it. I just did some moving of furniture and have a space. The hunt begins!

If you think the side of your house looks bad, you should see the inside of my barns. lol But how can we NOT collect, when we just know there will be the perfect use for our junk…someday. Your lovely ladder is a good case in point. ;)Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday, Holly. It's always so much fun to see your pretty projects.Blessings,Liz @ The Brambleberry Cottage
