blue ladder

My burro basket found a home! I bought this ladder at Ace Hardware last weekend and painted it Sea Breeze by Eddie Bauer Home. My ever so handy boyfriend used his new reciprocating saw to make it about 5 inches shorter (aka the perfect height) and later that very day altered the broken pallet from my balcony into something amazing! Once I find a place for it, I'll post pictures. 
Speaking of perfect places, I can't say I have one for my beloved burro basket. As of now it sits in the corner of my room next to my dresser, but eventually it will find a more prominent place in my apartment. I just love that it's so different and the bright blue ladder gives it a little something extra. You may have also noticed that my $10 window from our Round Top trip has found a temporary home. 

Next on the list is to redo my dresser and my breakfast table! But for now this little nagging voice in my head is beckoning me towards a term paper with a quickly approaching deadline.

  8. thank you for the sweet comments!! right now, the basket is a catch-all for magazines, my purse, etc., but i think it would be really cool with flowers, cute couch pillows or throw blankets in it for the living room.

  9. this is very cool, great idea! Would work great in a mudroom or entrway!
