Here is the easel I made for the WFC. I used some poplar that I had around. It still needs to be finished, but it will have to wait till after work travel this week. The travel gives me some time to research the paint. The easel is going to my daughter for christmas. Everything she has is white and I would like for it to match, well everything. The latex paint I used for her bed didn't turn out so good. It dirtys up easily and is a pain to clean. I was looking into to put a poly top coat, but read that you have to let latex paint dry for 4-6 weeks? Any suggestions?
