My office/studio is fairly neutral because it's such a small space I wanted it to feel as open and light as possible. However, I had two pieces that were disrupting that flow and so yesterday afternoon I decided to give them a makeover.
The first one I am going to post is my easel. It is a Carolina H-frame and it came in a natural wood color, which on its own is really pretty.
I loved the layers of paint that had accumulated at the top where the canvas sits, so I decided to leave that as is. Actually I embellished it with a little bit of gold... I couldn't help myself! And I also painted the knobs and rubber grips gold as well.
I am seriously in LOVE with the way it came out, and what I love the most is that it didn't really take all that much work. I put about two coats of the white paint and two coats of the gold paint. I had read somewhere that you should put a sealer on furniture pieces that have chalk paint on them, so I'm gonna have to look that up. But in the mean time I'm going to admire my weekend handy work.
