After cleaning and sanding down the ladder a bit we applied a single coat of an off-white Milk Paint to help maintain its aged look. After the paint dried we then used a fine grit sand paper to expose some of the grain and reinforce the look of wear and tear.
|First Coat Finished!|
To hang the ladder we used a pair of antique pulleys once used on the farm Jen's family owned. (we'll try to find out more details) We also found a surplus of old meat hooks, also used on the farm, which work perfectly as the actual pot hangers.
