Why do you have a ladder in your lounge room????

Thursday, October 30, 2008

I am constantly asked by people why do you have a ladder in your lounge room????? and basically I say WHY NOT!!!!! I so love this old apple picking ladder, it is huge and so full of character. I also have a larger old mirror on my sideboard now made from a gorgeous old frame.... Anyway I had the electrician here for most of the day yesterday putting up new light fittings and we are finished except for a bit of a problem in the kitchen, which is annoying but he is a wonderful electrician that actually cares about his clients which is so lovely!!!! Loads and Loads of work to do, I am so very behind....

  6. Of course you have ladders in lounge rooms. I plan to get my cabinet makers in once the wall sheeting is done so we can scheme high bookshelves JUST SO I can have a ladder! Your home is just gorgeous... it has an almost ethereal quality to it. I can't wait to see your lights... maybe I can steal some ideas from you... you know how I am struggling with light choices!

    the ladder and all your pieces put together look wonderful.
