Linda Dano Adjustable 64" Decorative Bamboo Easel
I bought two of these easels and got them in the mail yesterday. I am thrilled with the quality. They are excellent. No assembly required and I thought they were very well packed in sturdy boxes. I have no complaints about the packing. I am a painter and am going to use these when I have a larger canvas to paint on and also for displaying my artwork. I could never find an easel of this quality in an art supply store. I am very happy with this purchase. I was so excited when I got them I called my daughter to tell her how nice they are.
I Like It....
Bought this in warm brown because the darker color was sold out. The warm brown really makes the dark picture frames look beautiful! Mine came in good condition but I can see why other viewers had mention that there easel had marks on them. There not wrapped in plastic or any thing. My easel legs the bottom feet were some what wrapped but nothing else and it came in a VERY FLIMSEY BOX!!! Other wise this is just beautiful and what I was looking for. Sorry to say that Linda will not be making this any more along with the rest of her line.

Will have to store since I have no space to actually use it yet. Just wanted to pick up what I could of Linda's beautiful items. Really sadden by her no longer having home accessories, since I have purchased many and will miss her very much.
Great way to change a room without paint or nails
I am an apartment dweller who doesn't usually put holes in the walls. I had a large canvas sitting on a table in my entryway, but when I saw this easel on clearance I decided to change my space. I ordered the darker easel which arrived with some scratches... It sits in a corner of the room and really warms up the space. I'd buy the lighter color easel just to change it out, but I don't have the storage room. This is a somewhat larger but lightweight decor piece with no assembly required.
The packaging should be changed to a softer material because it does scuff the easel. If I had gone with the lighter color it would not be a problem. I do love it and I was going to give it as a gift to my sister but chose to keep it. I'm a crafter and it helps me see my project in a vertical position before nailing it to the wall.
Nice but poor packing
The easel is sturdy and is easy to use. However, the packing rubbed on the wood revealing the original wood color. I touched up with dark brown furniture repair marker.
FUN AND FUNCTIONAL
Was not sure if I would like this but when it went on a lunch time special I took the plunge and glad I did. I have found it to be useful and a fun way to display photos and prints at a whim without worrying about nail holes in the walls. No assembly and is easy to move about and easy to adjust to any picture you want to showcase. I got the deep brown. Like another reviewer wrote, I am glad to have it.
I have a picture of our Lab that we framed and really did not have the wall space for it in our family room. It is a great picture that we had done by a photographer and I could only think of one place to put it (in a corner by the fireplace) so I put bamboo plant stand there and it looked so so.... Then I thought if I could find the right easel somewhere I would get it at the right height... IT LOOKS GREAT! Thank you Linda Dano for bringing this to QVC......Love It.....
Clever and useful
The easel arrived with a few tiny scratches, but I took care of those (wasn't sending it back) and has proved to be a useful, creative, fun and practical decorating tool. I have some canvas prints, and also purchased a nice glass/framed picture to use, so after finding the perfect spot for the easel, I can play around and switch out my pictures on a whim....changing the entire look of that corner of my living room. I was doubtful when the easel first arrived, but after fiddling with it, I'm glad I have it.
