Ladder To Success

Trying to get organized this new year?  A message board is a great item towards some organizational success.  This one was created from the bottom rungs of a longer ladder.
 I used the top part to make a Christmas card holder that sold at Holiday Junk Fest before I got to take a picture of it.  I knew these bottom 2 rungs would work for something.  All I did was add a board painted with chalkboard paint--this is screwed into the rungs, and a coffee sack covered bulletin board piece that I hot glued to the rungs.  I left the ladder with its original finish, simply added a little Briwax over the top.  What are you doing to get organized?

  1. Great idea, I have the old ladder, only wish I had the wall space to put it!

  2. This is really adorable! I wish I had an old ladder lying around to do this with now.

  3. I love this!! This was like de-ja-vu! I make bulletin boards with that exact same coffee sack and sell them on etsy. I don't **think** I sold this one to you! :)

  4. Creative, as always, Becky! That's one awesome message board!! Thanks for linking up to the 1st Project of the Year Party!

  5. Wonderful! Loving the coffee sack combination with the chalkboard and the great character of the ladder. Just lovely!
