How to Spray Paint an Easel:


1. First pick your easel size. Mine is around 5" tall (so it's quite small). It's also shaped like a cutting board, which is darling! Tape off the section you do not want to paint. I wanted a diagonal paint line so you can see the part that isn't covered by painter's tape. Spray the easel with any color of spray paint you want. I used a fresh coral color.

2. To further decorate the easel, I added little acrylic letters from Tim Holtz. I used a clear glue that works really well at holding acrylic shapes. I used a Post-It Note stack to measure where the letters should fall.
