homemade ginger: Quick Easel Makeover

Quick Easel Makeover

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Recently I decided to spruce up the girls' art easel. It was a bit of an eyesore...I wanted it to blend better with our decor while still serving it's purpose. Check out the before and after...




I wasn't down with the primary colors and marker lines everywhere, so I decided to do something about it



I cleaned up all the dirt and dust and then taped off the chalkboard and white board on the other side.


I gave it a few coats of white spray paint and then I took off the red cloth baskets that were hanging underneath and took them apart.






I used that as a pattern to make new baskets with some yellow and gray home decor fabric I had on hand.



And now we have a much more pleasant looking easel to put in the play area! I'm working to revamp the whole play nook/art space as well as our office. It's a shared space and really needs some TLC, so stay tuned!



Happy Thursday and stay warm if you got snow last night like we did!

  2. This does look good. I too am not fond of all the primary or pink colors out there on kids' furniture. Love how a coat of paint and some material can really change the look :)
