Step Ladder Makeover

Here is a simple wooden step ladder, it was a $5.00 estate sale find.

This makeover was really easy.  I had some black paint so turned it into chalk paint with the magic of plaster of paris.    After painting it with a couple coats I went through my box of stencils. Numbers felt like the perfect addition to this little ladder.

 I used these numbers that were self adhesive, (stickers) I put them in place and placed a circular stencil over the top.  I then gave it a shot of white spray paint.  Hint:  Never underestimate the overspray of spray paint.

 As much as I tried it still went over but I still had my chalk paint handy in anticipation of this.  After the white paint was thoroughly dry I removed the numbers.

 I didn’t really get the after photo I was hoping for so I am including some rooms that I have found that I envision this piece to add interest.
