Cool Idea: An Art Easel as a TV Stand

When Danny Seo couldn't come up with a use for the paint-splattered easel left behind in his new home, formerly owned and built by an artist, he decided to mount his Energy Star-rated flat screen TV on it. Mounting televisions above the fireplace is considered sacrilegious to him, and he had no oil painting that would work on the easel, so it was really the perfect solution. And, I think it adds personality — not that Danny Seo needs any. Easels come in all shapes and forms, from traditional wooden ones used by artists to decorative metal ones. You'll likely need to reinforce the television and the stand with some screws, so you should consider that when purchasing one for yourself (i.e. make sure you have something to screw into). But, of course, if you have a spare easel lying around, upcycling really is the best option.
