  1. That ladder is one of those things that 5 years from now you will still be so glad that you painted it that gorgeous color…it was just meant to be and that color is perfect. Can’t wait to see how it is next used!

  2. I haven’t tried Fat Paint, i had not heard of it before reading your blog. Love the color you used.

  3. I love the color you decided on. I have heard of Fat Paint but have never tried it. It does look like it has good coverage. It is going on my Paint Bucket List of paint to try.
