While trying to access some elusive item in my attic last week I came upon the ladder that my kids each used when it was their turn to have a loft bed in their bedrooms.
Hmmmmm. I've been trying to come up with a solution for the pile of books I usually keep on the bottom shelf of my night table. It's my "must read" stack and it's always a mess.
Took the hooks off of the top of the ladder. Removed numerous stickers. Applied my handy Restore-a-Finish which has come in handy for just about any wood surface that needs sprucing up in my house. Put ladder on top of side table in bedroom and I think it makes a pleasant alternative to another bookcase.
I've seen many blogs showing different ways to utilize old ladders, so I thank once again all those creative people out there for giving me an idea of how to "re-purpose" another thing in my house.
And, what am I reading, you ask? Nothing terribly earth shattering, but worthy as a page turner:
I've read a good number by this author and this is one of his first published novels. He wrote an interesting forward to this book twenty years after he wrote it and warns the reader not to read it if it's their first time reading one of his novels. Since I have some "experience" with his books, I thought I'd give one of his fledgeling efforts a try and so far, I like it.
In the space of twenty years our lives change so drastically. Just think back to where you were 20 years ago...
