Two craigslist acquisitions have joined the party in the form of a GINORMOUS easel and a much smaller, but still cool drafting table…more on the table later bc it is being all kinds of gussied up right now.
Can you believe the size of this easel? haha. its much, much more than i set out to find…but it was such a great deal, i couldn’t help myself. Its 4 feet wide with 2 masts and a stinkin pulley and crank system to hoist the main sail, me hearties! argh! i feel like a pirate when i turn the crank.
We will definitely need to blow out the ceiling to make it vaulted now, because what you’re seeing is the full height of the UN-extended masts nearly hitting the ceiling already?! : ) i love to work large…but i do paint small on occasion and my husband and i were cracking up at how a 12×12 canvas will look on this behemoth. We are getting hardwoods in this space…but we actually HAD to put the easel together IN the room even with the carpet still down, because 1) its the only place we could fit it, and 2) it won’t make it through the door assembled.
aaaaaanywhoooo….just marking the progress! onward we go!
