Petit déjeuner sur l’herbe

Materials: Bekvam stepladder, decopatch paper, artificial turf, glue for decopatch, extra strong glue for artificial herb, varnish

Description: First I put green decorated decoupage paper on the stands of the ladder with decoupage glue. Covered stands with 3 layers of glue to make it stronger.

When the stands were completely dry, I’ve varnished them (that will save the ladder from being damaged too soon and gives it a beautiful shining).

- Afterwards I decorated only the sides of the 2 horizontal levels of the ladder also with decoupage paper with 3 layers of glue.

- Cut out the artificial grass with a stanley knife and putted on the 2 levels.

- Varnished the sides of the 2 levels

- Put together the Bekvam ladder like mentioned in the Ikea manual

    What a unique way of designing a ladder. I think its a perfect addition in redecorating my kids room. I’ll put that as a step in their double-deck bed. I guess it is now to buy a synthetic turf perth to start making that kind of art in the ladder.
