    Easel Help!

    Hi,

    This may sound very random - but its one of those little things that are bugging me!

    We are ordering our table plan from Paper Themes (its going to be Size: 594 x 841 mm - A1)

    I'm imagining putting it in a nice white frame, but need something to put it on (an easel?).

    Our venue is a marquee so doesn't have anything we can use - they do have an iron easel but I'm keen to find something white so it doesn't look out of place in our country theme?

    Does anyone know where I could buy one quite cheaply?

    Thanks

    I'm getting one of these and spraying it white (well, off white anyway!) with Plastikote spray:

    Thanks! I thought of that option but to be honest I don't even know where to start looking.

    I've never touched an easel in my life!

    If I'm looking at the one your getting it might be a bit big for our table plan? or would that not matter?

     

    Many thanks

    I'm hoping that, as it's adjustable, it will be ok! I think our table plan is roughly the same size as yours.
    I kind of assumed that the 6ft measure ment was from the floor to the very top, with the picture frame resting about two-thirds of the way up, putting it about 4ft off the floor at the bottom, which seemed about right to me!

    Also, it's the cheapest easel/postage option I've found so far. I got bored of looking after an hour or so though & decided to just go with it! Wink Not ordering it til the end of the month though, so if I find anything else in the mean-time I'll post here Smile

    Look for an art shop, you should be able to pick a wooden one up for £20 - £30 and you can paint it white.

    Thanks all!

    Found this. http://direct.hobbycraft.co.uk/products-HobbyCraft-Sketching-Field-Easel_240541.htm

    Does anyone know how you attach your table plan to that? Surely it needs a have a holding bit.

    Sorry... like I said, never used an easel! :-(

    there are 2 holders(little ledges) on each leg that can move up and down. and a bit at the top to keep is secure.
