How I saved $580.00...
I went to Dick Blick in search of a wall easel and decided it was way to expensive. So I created my own and spent about $100.00. Not bad! Now let's see if it holds up to this painter's abuse.
Make a comment on this blog if you want to see how I built it and what materials I used from Amazon and Home Depot. It's really quite simple! And, I don't think they look to bad either. It took me about 2 hours to make and mount both easels. They are rock solid to paint on!
Both units are 36" tall with 16" between the pair (house studs).
The bottom photo is sporting an 18 x 24 canvas panel.
So, this setup supports fairly large canvases or panels.
