Quick Easel Makeover

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!

    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 :)

    I love this simple facelift and what big change it makes. Super cute, that yellow and gray fabric is adorable
