Decorate A Vintage Ladder!

Hey Porch fans! The cooler weather makes it harder and harder to get any big projects done, but it doesn't mean I can't still have a little fun!

Today's easy-peasy project is to decorate an old ladder! Hubby picked up this dumpster-find for me, and I LOVE it! It's just a weathered vintage wood step ladder, but it has so much decorating potential!

For autumn, I chose an assortment of baskets and filled each with autumny goodness: a colorful leaf garland, pumpkins, even shredded brown paper. It all works so great together!

It would look great with REAL leaves, pumpkins, apples, etc., too!

Can't wait to change out my ladder for the seasons. Up next: CHRISTMAS! ;)

Depression-Era Hutch Makeover

I scored this sweet depression-era hutch recently and gave it a fabulous makeover! Check out this photo-heavy post:

BEFORE: She was so dark and brown, not bad, but scratched up. I just knew a coat of white paint and a little distressing would really bring out her curvy details!

AFTER! This hutch is lighter, brighter and full of chippy charm!

Before & After!
