A splash of red transforms a rumpty old ladder into a handy stool or nifty shelves.
Step 1 Clean the ladder thoroughly with a scrubbing brush and hot soapy water to remove any dust, grease or cobwebs. Allow to dry. Sand off any loose paint. Don’t worry about making the surface smooth – the imperfections will add to the effect. Scrub metal hinges to remove any flaking metal.
Step 2 Paint all wooden surfaces with two light coats of Resene Quick Dry Waterborne Primer Undercoat, allowing each coat to thoroughly dry.
Step 3 Finish with two top coats of Resene Enamacryl Gloss Waterborne Enamel. We chose Resene Monza for a really peppy shade of red.
