I saw this project for a large art center and loved the idea of putting the chalk and white boards on the wall rather than on the easel. Then I saw this cool oil drip pan magnetic board and decided to add that to the wall. To store the art supplies where they could easily be put away I loved the ideas of hanging small buckets on a rod that I saw here and here.
I am terrible about taking "before" pictures, but our easel was a lot like this one. It was really easy to just take off the white and chalk boards and simply attached them to the wall. I used anchors for the top two screws, just in case. I put them right up against the edge of the wall and against each other for two reasons: First, that way they all fit without covering the outlet and second, that way there wasn't wall space in between to be colored on in and "oops" situation.
I got the oil drip pan from Walmart. Easy as can be! I let the bottom rest on the floor and used two upside down 3M hooks on top to keep it again the wall. The pink magnetic baskets to hold the magnets were in Target's school supplies (locker organization) this year.
And there you have it! The girls love it and I love not having to walk or vacuum around the easel! And, with the addition of the buckets and the magnet board, it is better than before!
Good luck and have fun!
