You're at an estate sale. It's hot. There are lots of things you would like to buy, but they are going for too much money. You are just about ready to call it a day so you can go home and pour a bucket of water over your head. Then you see it. It is thrown into a pile of what looks like trash. But, you know it isn't trash (at least not to you). It is just what you have been looking for.
So you pull it out and lug it over to the auctioneer.
Excuse me, are you going to auction this off.
He looks at you like you are crazy and then says yes.
Okay, that was my first mistake and as I am no rookie to auctions I know that I should have said , are you throwing this out. Then he may have said yes and I could have walked away with it for free.
Let the bidding begin.
Of course there was some other lady who recognized it for the jewel that it is and bid against me. Fortunately for me she wasn't that enamored with it and I was able to walk away with it for fifteen dollars.
Oh happy day!!! Oh happy Day!!
So it sat around for awhile until I decided where I wanted it to go. Then when I decided to make some spiffy new changes to my bathroom, I knew it was perfect.
You remember the stool and basket for extra towels I showed you. You can read about it here.
You may remember that the basket had been filled with pretty linens,
and I really wanted a place to display some of them.
Then it hit me. (sometimes I have to smack myself upside the head) Rustic old ladder? Pretty sweet vintage lines? A match made in heaven. And, I had a vacant wall in the bathroom.
Once again I stood on my head in the bathtub to get a photo. My bathroom is definitely space challenged. And here it is. I'm definitely loving it and the bathroom decorating is moving right along at breakneck speed a snails pace. Kind of like me.
Yes, I am aware that I am a day late for a couple of these, but please refer to my previous comment about the snail's pace. Besides, I wouldn't want to deprive anyone of the opportunity of seeing my wonderful ladder.
