My daughter used it right away
It was a little difficult figuring how it set up but once that was figured out, my daughter used it right away. She liked the storage in it the best.
My new easel
I just completed my first oil painting using my new easel. I am very pleased with this purchase. There are easels out there with more features, but not for the cost of this easel. It stands sturdy & holds canvas with no movement. I was able to set it to my comfort level as to height & angle. I love having the drawer to store. and have handy all my paint tubes. The only feature this did not come with was a set on instructions to refer to while figuring out how it all went together. I obviously got it done, but that would have been a handy thing to have...
I think this is well worth the price. Great storage, sturdy, & versatile. It sits in a corner of my living room not taking up much space at all and I can jump up and paint any time without hauling all my materials out, as most everything I need is quietly waiting in the corner. Love it.
Great customer service saved the day
The easel is really a great product overall. Sadly, a relatively minor manufacturing error put its usefulness in jeopardy by stressing the clasp on one side. A single call to customer service was immediately escalated for Special Handling. A new one is on its way. They handled this perfectly!! I will buy with confidence in the future.
Perfect gift for any Artist
This thing is amazing. My lady friend for whom I got this was beyond ecstatic once we set it up and she realized its full potential. It doesn't come with any set up instructions, but so long as you haven't sustained any recent head trauma then you should be able to figure it out in about 5-10mins.
