Above are a few close up shots of the spray paint colors used to refinish this wooden ladder. We decided to go with the soft sheen of satin white and the reflective tones of the metallic chrome.
You may also notice that we decided to leave some inconspicuous areas of the ladder where the natural wood tones are shown.
