On a hunch I decided to head to the back streets of Bend and check out the Iron Horse, a second hand and antique store. The guy who owns it is extremely nice and trusting. The kind of guy you want to do business with...the kind of guy you want to give your money too. Since the last time I was there he had doubled the inventory and the two second hand businesses next door opened a connecting wall...SWEET! I found my ladder...and it had some old hardware on it which I liked. The best part is the seller had already painted it and it was ready to use. Then while I was paying I picked up this bamboo thing and said, "how much?" He said, "Well, it just came in...how about $6?" Which is the amount he took off the ladder as a final price! SOLD. He then asked, "what are you going to do with it?"
So, here is my ladder. When I first saw it, the black kinda threw me off but I thought I could paint it if I didn't like it. Then when I got home and saw all the other black accents in the room I realized it fit in perfect!
And now I can start enjoying even more quilts in my cupboards than ever before. I figure I can even change the quilts to fit the season. Ahhhh, I love it when a good idea comes together.
