This is my first project to post because, well… It’s the first one I bothered to take pictures of.

My daughter wanted a art easel for her birthday so I figured no sense in buying one when I can build it. Made from select pine from the BORG, left unfinished so she can personalize it. Built it to fold up for storage when she’s not using it, and it sets back up pretty easy. One side is 1/4 hardboard sprayed with chalkboard paint, the other side is just 1/4 hardboard that holds paper from the paper roll in the center. Nowhere near the caliber of other projects I see on LJ but she loves it and was fun to make. Thanks for looking.

It seems to me done well, compliments.
