Art On A Ladder

I told you that when I was growing up I liked to put a lot of time and energy into decorating my room and I showed you all the crazy things I did to it.

I did not tell you that I used to keep a ladder in my room. 

I saved up my money and bought a wooden ladder. Mainly, because I thought it would be awesome to have a ladder in your room. It could be used as extra seating. I could use it in my acrobatic routine. And it was a little helpful when I needed to put more pictures of The Muppet Babies on my ceiling.

I painted the ladder yellow.

I googled yellow ladder and this image came up. I have a million smurf miniatures. So, who knows... maybe this was my inspiration.

Here is the point in this post where you get more of a glimpse of what a weirdo I was (AM). I would lay on the ground and try to do tricks where I twirled the ladder around with my legs. I did these tricks ALLLLL the time. I even impressed my company with them (READ: made my company think I was stranger than they originally thought). Most of the time I would end up accidentally throwing the ladder into the wall or conking myself on the head with it.

I really am one strange dudette.

On with the show...
I have stopped using a ladder as part of a gymnastics routine but I have no stopped decorating my house with them. As you are probably starting to realize, Scott and I always have at least 300 projects going on at one time. Many of them involve a ladder. And many of them go on for 6 months to 3 years (no joke... we are SLOW). 

For the first time in a few months, we do not have any indoor ladders. We do have a couple of outdoor ones up that are ready to be gymnast-ified. The ladder pictured below is a little too metal and a little too big (my old one was only 6 feet tall and couldn't be stretched into a big one like this).

So, as you may have guessed from the title of the post, I will use the ladder as an art display for you.

This photo is basically an M.C. Escher "trick your mind" painting. Not really, but it does look like the two yellow, blue, and white paintings are one big painting. Big gotcha of the day- they are 2 separate paintings. You will get to see those ones again on the big bonus room reveal.

There you have it, folks. That is what they call "art on a ladder."

And what you all are really here for... the daily 
Would You Rather Question!

WYR... everything you see is tinted a shade of green
your dominant hand was replaced with a hook?


  1. Tinted green. I like your new paintings! The orange squares is a new direction for you.
