I needed some easels and was 2 seeking floor size models. Nice looking easels are not cheap and I have been scouring thrift shops for weeks, so when I stumbled upon easels at 'Garden Ridge' last week I was pleased to find they had some at 75% off.
I wasn't thrilled with the motif or the color, but the price was right at just $3.74 each. I decided to keep the receipt & the tags and try it out. If it was an epic fail I would return them.
I am happy to say that my set up looked good...... and did the trick as I had a GREAT day $$.
So I decided to keep the easels, BUT that color scheme had to go. It's hard to tell from the 'before' pic but it's sort of a multi-color, rustic, gothic, tacky look.
Off to the hardware store and I bought some Krylon spray paint in 'Oil Rubbed Bronze'. A few light coats on this beautiful autumn day and VOILA'!

Tacky becomes classy...just like that!
