Let’s talk about WALL ART! This post is sponsored by Photowall! :)
You guys know Joel and I moved into our house a year ago, and with the move came decorating the new place. Since we were previously in a small apartment, we didn’t have much stuff. We certainly had plenty of “blank spaces” in the house that needed to be furnished and decorated.
One of my favorite ways to add life to a sparsely decorated room is through wall art! Adding something simple like a photograph or painting to bare walls can do so much to make a room feel more like a home.
A couple months ago, Photowall reached out to me offering a piece in exchange for a review. I did some browsing on their site (here) and after seeing their huge variety of options, I happily agreed! Fun fact: there is a 20% off discount for YOU too! Promo deets are at the bottom :)
The first thing I did was pick out a print. I had fun with this! :) There are tons and tons of prints on the Photowall site… in every style and color scheme imaginable! With so many options on offer, I had about 40 tabs open of all of my faves. Here are just a few I strongly considered: THIS one, THIS one, and THIS one! So many good ones to choose from! The one I ended up going with, my absolute favorite, is HERE!
After I decided on the print, I decided on the SIZE I wanted. By the way, I appreciate having the ability to customize the dimensions — it is nice being able to get exactly what I want or need for a specific space! The one piece of advice I have for anyone accustomed to dealing in inches rather than centimeters is to use a converter (the dimensions on the site are only in cm).
When the print finally arrived, I was pretty pleased to see some detailed instructions with pictures :) Who doesn’t love instructions that are easy to understand?
We started out on the breakfast table but we ended up moving to the living room floor later so that the print could lie flat. The frame was very light, which made handling the frame very easy. I was actually surprised how lightweight the entire thing was, given the size! It’s nice that it isn’t super heavy because we can hang it with regular screws rather than having to buy something special to support extra weight.
The frame was a little longer than the table, so we headed to the living room floor so that the print could lie perfectly flat. You might be able to see — the coffee table was temporarily displaced so that we could complete this task :)
We then secured the print to the frame using the kit that was provided.
We closely followed those instructions! :) The directions were really easy to follow and we had no trouble understanding what to do.
The process for securing the print to the frame was not complicated. Even though Joel and I did this together, the whole thing could totally be completed by just one person.
The one thing to be careful of is making sure there are no air bubbles or folds happening along the edges of the frame. This very nearly happened to us on one of the sides of the print, but thankfully we were able to gently iron out the air bubble by pressing with our fingers. Just be careful about that, and you should be fine. Doing this on a flat surface and following the instructions should help to prevent anything like that from happening. :)
And voila! We are excited to get our new lovely print up on the wall! I really like how fresh and clean the print looks. I feel like it is a really calming picture, and the colors are subtle and neutral enough that the print would probably look great with most color schemes. It will definitely brighten up the room! :)
As you can probably tell, my experience with Photowall was a majorly positive one!
One of my favorite things about their site is that it allows the customer to choose the dimensions of the prints. This is something I personally have not seen other stores doing, but it makes so much sense! There have been multiple times that I have shopped at other stores and found an amazing print only to be disappointed that it is the wrong size. Such a bummer! But this a TOTAL non-issue at Photowall! :)
Another thing I seriously loved was the sheer amount of OPTIONS that are available on the Photowall website. I’m convinced they have something for everyone! I looked at a TON of their canvas prints but there were SOOO many more than what I saw. Also, canvas prints aren’t the only thing they do — they also do wall murals, which is pretty cool.
And guess what – you can even use an image of your choice if you want. I didn’t try this but how COOL is that!? It would be so nice to use a photograph from our wedding or our Bahamas vacation!
I’m pretty pleased with how everything went, from the customization of the print to placing the order, the shipping, and the assembly. It’s also worth noting that the print is exactly as it is shown on their site (no color warping or anything).
I will certainly visit their site the next time I am in need of something lovely for my walls. We still have a couple bare spots at home that I’m trying to decide what to do with. So there’s a very good chance that I’ll be turning to Photowall to beautifully fill in those spaces! :)
