Don’t we all love the idea of taking some time out, grabbing a blank canvas and creating something that’s ours? Sure, you may be no Picasso but there’s something incredibly therapeutic about art.
Even so, if painting isn’t your cup of tea and it’s just the elegance a vintage easel can bring to a space that interests you, you don’t have to be an artist to own one.
As you’ll find out, there’s more to being creative than brushes and pastels. Check out the various interesting ideas you can use to make an antique style easel work in your home.
Your own creations might not be worthy of wall space, but we’re sure there’s a favourite painting or two around the house that would look fantastic displayed on an easel.
Get a decorative easel that suits the room you are looking to display the picture in. There’s a variety to choose from. Then take your picture off the wall and proudly display it on your new easel. You know how after a while paintings fade into the background? This is a great way to bring attention to them again and freshen up a space.
Much in the same way as displaying a piece of art, you can use a sturdy metal frame easel to hold a mirror. This is quite an extravagant and elegant way of featuring a mirror in either a bathroom, bedroom or reception room.
Many of our customers purchase our decorative easels to use as display stands at their weddings. They are used at wedding receptions as an interesting and beautiful way of displaying seating plans and welcome signs.

Don’t have anywhere to chuck your clothes? Find yourself scrambling for a place to carefully place out tomorrows work outfit?
How about using a decorative easel in your bedroom or dressing area as a unique and quirky way of hanging clothes, scarfs, hats, belts and any other item that doesn’t need to go back in the wardrobe or a spin in the washing machine.
No not for kids…for plants! A bit out there, we know, but riffing on the theme of creativity we were struck with this unique vision: a vintage silver display easel with lilac clematis clinging and sprawling between the supports. Perhaps slightly wasted in the garden, though if you have the right space you have to admit it would make for a fantastic centre piece.
