Mini Stepladder Card TreeDecember 22nd, 2011 in member junk
Inspired by Funky Junk Donna's stepladder tree (you might have started a trend here, Donna) and also by a couple of other posts using ladders to display cards--- I remembered I had this mini stepladder which I found in the curbside trash when walking the dog at 6:00am. I really did need a small stepladder, but once I brought it home I discovered why it had been thrown out: too wobbly to stand on. I left it outside in pouring rain by accident and that did the trick: the joints swelled and now it's tight as new, yet still has that beat up chipped paint look...
I positioned it on a little area of the kitchen counter where the cabinets end. I stuffed it with last year's ice skate displays of holly and poinsettia for color...a whole lot easier than stuffing it with a tree!
