How about some Orange?

Good evening everyone.  Here is Michigan and where I am it is raining and about 60 degrees.  It's a far cry from the hot and humid weather we had a week ago.  I see steam coming off the lake.  Well I have a little project that I did and I'm sorry but I forgot to take a picture of my little step ladder. It was really beat up and lots of paint splatters all over it.  I wanted to give it a burst of color and I decided to paint it a fun orange.  This is what it looks like:

I first painted the whole ladder with Kilz paint because I didn't want any stains to come thru and kilz paint helps that problem.  When it dried I painted it my fun orange.
 But when the orange paint dried I thought it still looked a little boring so I decided to paint the No.'s on each of the steps in a burnt umber acrylic paint.  I than painted all the edges to look distressed and all the bolts and screws on the side of the ladder. 
 I was pleased on how it came out and it looks so fun and cheery.
What do you think?  Until next time, Dianne............................
