~Some fun projects around the house this week~

I actually had some time to myself this week since I was off for 4 whole days that doesn't happen to often. So I thought after cleaning my house I would change some things around and then go dig in my garage for a couple easy projects.
The first one is my vintage apple pickin ladder which I bought at the Burlington Apple Harvest Festival that is always the first weekend of October which happens to be this coming weekend. 
I know I will find something wonderful there to bring home so better get some things done to make room for some new fabulous junk I am sure I will drag home.
I had several ideas for this ladder but this is my favorite idea for it. I have seen it in Country sampler and at my favorite country store The Barn in Ridgely WV.  So here is my version.

I have 9 foot ceilings in my great room so I hung this at the center between the kitchen and family room. It looks so cool and divides the rooms. I used things I already had I knew I would use them for this someday. I Love it!!

My next little project is an old cabinet door it had those tin punch outs with roosters tacked in the squares someone had painted over them and they needed to go so I tore them out painted  it white distressed the edges and used a stain to give it an aged look, I added some chicken wire to the back and I have a shabby chic memo or picture display piece. Again this cost me just a little time I had everything here. I think this will look great with some vintage postcards. 

Don't you just Love the little glass knob?

That's it for today I will be junk hunting this weekend so come back to see what I bring home. 
Thanks for stopping. I enjoy hearing your comments hope to see you in a couple days. 
Happy Junkin!!
