Something Weird! **Update

My good friend, Connie, threw out a dare to find something weird in your house so I decided to play along. Here's mine. And just to prove that this really isn't some new clothes hanger contraption, notice the can of paint on the dresser in the background and that golden color on the ceiling. See I really did start out using this ladder for it's intended purpose. I'm doing a little makeover in my bedroom. It started before the holidays but I got busy and didn't move beyond the ceiling. I plan to finish this project in February. Hopefully. That's the plan anyway.

Oh yeah. I was just trying the color out. This was not an accident. I hope these colors work. We'll see when the project is finally complete. I've got all new bedding, new curtains, new accessories, a new trunk and a new chair. I plan on adding a new ceiling fan, lamps, and carpet (when the budget allows). Remember that thing I said about being a procrastinator? I bought the bedding over a year ago. Yeah.... whatever.
Oh and so far Tuesday isn't as bad as Monday. Although my partner called in sick, which means I get to do twice as much work for the next couple of days. But I'm going to my first FCC Waiting Families Group meeting tonight so that might be cool and definitely ups the point value on whether this will be a good day at the end of it. And I had a funny phone conversation earlier with my niece. She cracks me up so that improved my mood, too. For a laugh at the expense of a four year old click here.

*Update: Since half of my commenters said they couldn't see the pics, I re-loaded them. Can you see me now?

I don't know girl, that ladder looks damn convenient. I have an 8 footer in the garage...wow, could I do some damage with that.

Thanks for playing along...and I think your boudoir looks marvy so far. The colors are gonna be fabulosa!

I caught up with Tatum. I put girly in my bloglines. She's my kinda pistol!

Have fun and looking forward to hearing about the FCC gig.

So, you're thinking of painting the ceiling gold, and the walls that dark red? Hmmm. Very Moroccan.

The ladder is an odd accessory don't you think??? Maybe somthing a little smaller next time!
Love the colours and the penguins. Damn if you loved closer I would have an Englsih cookie to share with you called penguins that are so good, if you like chocolate.

Can see em now, baby! My friend has an old wooden ladder (the straight up and down kind) as her towel rack in the bathroom! Kinda funky I reckon!

Love the ladder! That's some serious decor!

Mommy-To-Channing said...

Oh K!! So what colors are you painting the bedroom? Love the ladder in the room, that would be just perfect for me. I love to just throw things instead of hanging them up, and look at all those steps I could use..lol!!!
Hope you enjoyed your get together...they are always fun!!!
