I've been wanting to get an easel for Liam for some time now. All the easels I've found were way over-priced and I was not completely in love with them. I could not get myself to spend 150 dollars on an easel. Did you know that Ikea has an easel for $14.99? Well they do! You can get it here. The shipping was only $10.00. This easel comes in a natural wood color but I wanted something bright and fun for Liam's playroom. So that's what I did. :-)
Here is what the easel looked like before.
Tape the easel very well. Tape all that you do not want spray painted.
I wanted the easel to be magnetic too so I got some magnetic primer. It is a little pricey (almost 20 bucks) but it works. Once I put a few coats of magnetic primer I painted over it with some chalkboard paint.
Here it is in Liam's playroom. Easy, saved money and so fun!
