Ladder of success 煥然一新的梯子

My apartment has just done a big renovation and I've also finished the home interior re-painting. The contractor left us a wooden ladder which they usually dispose it after work. I thought it's worth to redo it and save the earth by upcycling everything to last longer. 家居剛完成大廈工程, 工人留下給我們一張木梯, 通常這類梯子用完便當費料處理, 我覺得可惜及浪費. 於是做一些加工保留再用.










On a cool Sunday, hubby asked "what's up?". He was afraid I may have done some graffiti on the building external wall. I said no panic I just used the leftover paints to paint the ladder. 星期天我在平台開始我的"工程" , 老公生怕我又在外牆上塗鴉, 我說別慌我祗是做自己的事為梯子美化. It's very easy to do it as no need to sand it. I painted twice coating.After blue paint I drew some leaves then decoupaged with birds and betttles. 塗上油漆後, 晝上葉子, 加上雀鳥及甲蟲拚貼, 很簡單完成了.
Mogi is always a Qualiy Controller. He inspected it with thumbs up.
Mogi 驗貨, 我可收工了.





It's a stand to show my eco-print scarf. 就此完成一件可作陳列的架子.





Can't believe I've done some scarves with eco-print & dyeing.
不覺間我原來做了不少植物印染的絲巾.





A stand also good for plant hanging. It's my bit to save the earth by remaking whatever I can. 作為花架也不錯吧. 總算為環保出一點力.

  9. Good idea Terri on keeping the ladder and doing something useful with it. I have seen them used for hanging herbs to dry, or to display doilies or embroidery. The possibilities are endless and I'm sure you have all kinds of ideas.
