Upcycled Thrift Store side table~

My Mother-In-Law has an obsession with clocks! I haven't even tried to count the crazy amount of them in her house, so when I stumbled across this little guy, I KNEW it was meant to be!
I was at the thrift store trying to find something of a  "vintage" nature for a friend to wear for a Victorian show. On my way out, I walked passed this little table!
Immediately I saw sanding and paint for the perfect birthday present!
The process looked like this!
Now' I've ready many things out using different paint and not having to sand, but I've got it embedded in my head to sand, so therefore I do!
It turned out perfect and looks SO MUCH better black!!
Annnnnd....I'm back on the hunt for the perfect gift...
I liked it so much I kept it for our house!!

Old Ladder Picture Collage

It seems like when I FINALLY have time to fit some well needed crafting in, that everything goes KABOOM and I don't have time to share it!  Well, I've been lucky enough to Co-host and be a regular contributor at some pretty amazing blogs, so I better step up my game! This ladder has been collecting dust in my bedroom for years! Then, one night while getting my nightly "Pin" on, I found my inspiration here. It's a different ladder, but they all have space between the steps! I thought about painting it black, but quickly changed my mind and left it in it's natural state! It's warm, country and fits in perfectly with my "new room"! I'll be sharing all the little details of that soon! Not to mention, this  was a super easy project, but makes a big statement! I used 2 tiny hooks under each step and 2 on the top of each frame, then hooked them together! I used three 4 x 6 frames for the top three steps and 5 x 7's for the bottom three. With a little paint, they all match! LOVE IT!
