I recently picked up an art easel for Bubba at a yard sale.
While he was certainly happy using it in the state we bought it in, I knew it needed some work. The chalkboard needed a new coat of paint, there were scribbles on the legs, and the whiteboard was stained. I also was not to thrilled about the multi-colors.
So, I took it completely apart. That is the best solution, right?
I primed and painted each piece.
While the paint was drying, I covered the white board with felt, and added a new coat of paint to the chalkboard. I had pictures to show these steps, but someone deleted them before they were transferred to my computer. ::cough, cough, Bubba, cough, cough::
I love the outcome!
The color is so much lighter and fresher than before. Not to mention that the colors go better with the decor in the house.
