tip trick tuesday.. refurbished old wooden ladders..

 
i was able to pick up a couple of ladders for $2.50 each...  i painted one for my backyard in annie sloan chalk paint {ascp} pure white then old white and one for sam in ascp olive {pictures to come}..   
 
 
first coat was pure white that had been mixed with water.. a quick light coat..
 


then a coat of old white that has been mixed with water also.. 


then a coat of clear wax... 


 i was really liking it and not sure i wanted to add a coat of dark wax but i went for it..
 

I did a coat of dark wax all over it.. 


then i wrapped the side with silk ivy.. {that dark spot is actually just a shadow it's not from paint or anything}


 
i also wrapped it with small twinkly lights.. it really turned out cute.. took a few hours to paint.. i really like it..
 
this is sams chair before i put the clear wax and dark wax on it..
 
 
i also did a yard sale chair in the olive also .. i am really liking this color..
 
 
enjoy and get diy'in!!
