It is an apple ladder. I bought it thinking it would make a great bedside table.
I was wrong.
It is HUGE.
Way too huge for the area I had available beside the bed.
So I put it in the opposite corner and moved on.
But last summer I found another ladder.
It's a little like a regular ladder.
It's spattered with paint.
But it's a little different. It's got moves.
The middle shelves fold up. That's way cool.
It means I could have something tall - like a lamp - on the shelves.
I like that.
So. Finally. I did it.
I moved my bedside table to the other side of the bed and put up the ladder.
My lady lamp didn't fit.
So I had to use the boy lamp.
But that's OK
I really like the way it looks when the light is on.
It illuminates my baby girl's face.
I'm thinking that the next time I mix up some white milk paint I will give it a little coat of white paint.
But I'm not sure.
I wish you could see it in person...
It looks even better.
Should I paint it?
Or leave it in it's spattered glory?
