Gary in Bundaberg, Queensland here.
I have a small space in a garage which is used to store house hold effects. I purchased an old metal computer table from an op shop for $5.00.
Converted the keyboard shelf into a drawer to hold my oil paints.
On the top I screwed a section of wood with a white wall tile glued to it and use this as a palette to mix my paint on. To this piece of wood is screwed a back board which holds two L brackets. These support a length of 20mm thick dowel. I use this to hold rolls of paper towels etc for cleaning.
The shelves underneath hold a selection of small plastic containers for acrylic paints, thinners etc.
to the left side I have attached a wire basket from a kitchen supplier and this holds three containers for my brushes and knives
I can wheel this to where I want to work and have evrything close to hand.
My easel I built from a plan from a USA company. It cost me $40.00 for the plan and I built the Cadmium H frame easel for $550.00. I used Tasmanian Oak and Kwila hard wood. It is a very stable easel and can be moved easily on its castors. It is a heavy easel and weighs in around 80kg; but holds very large canvases.

All the best
