Ladders – To Climb or not to Climb

Ladders – To Climb or not to Climb

I have been wanting to build a ladder for quite some time now.  I haven’t been lucky enough to find an old used one at garage/auction sales…so it was time to finally build my own.  I bought all the supplies at our local building supply store.  I used 1″ dowels and one pine board for the sides which I cut down to the correct size.  I did have help with some of the cutting. :)
We drilled the holes all the way through and  used nails to keep the dowels in place.  After some sanding, priming, more sanding, painting and finally some lacquer the ladder was finished.  It just took a couple hours to complete!  I’m thinking I should make a few more of these for gifts or try to sell them.
Here is the finished ladder in all its glory!
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Antique Dining Room Set "FOR SALE"

This really has nothing to do with Netties Expressions. I have an antique dining room set FOR SALE!

I purchased this set from a family in Winnipeg. The wife wanted to purchase more modern furniture so they put it up for sale. This set has always been sold as a set. They said that they had purchased it from a family who claimed they purchased it from the original owners. Which would make me the fourth owner of this antique dining room set. Apparently it's from sometime around the 1920's. There are some original tags with the furniture but I couldn't find any dates.
