Back in the spring… my gracious neighbor gave me these
nice tree branches.
Well… they sat on the back porch for awhile as I contemplated what to use them for.
So back in the summer… when it was like 100 degrees I finally decided to build this.
Basically, my hubs cut the pieces I needed and I nailed it together.
IT IS PURELY A DECORATIVE PIECE.
No climbing on this ladder!
After I got it assembled… I didn’t know what to do with it. I really didn’t have a place or a plan for it yet.
So it sat out on the back porch with me staring at it for months.
And then finally it came to me… a photo ladder and a possible place in the dining room.
So I went out and bought some ingredients I needed…
and then got to cookin’.
All I did next was (after measuring) predrilled a small hole in the branches and photo frames and then screwed in screw eyes.
I had originally planned to use S hooks to link the frame to the steps but because my steps had different heights… it didn’t work out.
So I used hemp string I bought at Walmart a few weeks back. I actually like it better than the S hooks.
Next, I painted my photo frames white and then picked out some black and white photos of our wedding and put them in.
I had some berries left over from my White Cradle Centerpiece (Click here)
and just stuck them on.
But wait… I’m not through.
I want your opinion!
My hubby and I cut some pieces of wood from some branches outside. I had planned to glue them on the photo frame to make it look more rustic. I used a white wash over them.
Here are some just taped on…
Not sure which way to go??
what do you think?
the stumps of wood?
Thanks For Stoppin’ By!
