If you read my last post on what a kitchen means to me, you’ll know that a home is a place where I like to spend with family. Well, when we’ve tarted the place up a bit more anyway.
However, they can’t always be there to spend time with little old me, so after I was contacted this month by YourImage2Canvas to review their canvas products, I knew straight away that I would want a blown up picture of my entire family.
I’d eventually love to get a canvas picture of Cuba, from our honeymoon – either the gorgeous beaches of Varadero, or the quirky cars and buildings of Havana, but I’ll wait until we’ve got more wallspace before getting carried away.
We actually had a great family picture taken at our wedding. It included all of the friends and family (approximately 65 of us) that were at the ceremony itself and I thought this would be a perfect souvenir of the day, as well as a great image for visitors to the house to look at – and see if they can spot themselves!
It took me less than 5 minutes to put the order in – the website is surprisingly simple to use. And even myself, who is notoriously unlucky with post, was shocked to see it arriving on my doorstep the next morning– now that’s how all delivery should be! Take note Royal Mail!
The frame is made of solid pine so it’s really sturdy and due to the unusual image shape I had, I needed a custom size, which was as easy as typing it in and uploading the picture.
My canvas is 17 inches by 27 inches, and this came to £48 – which works out at a good few quid cheaper than Tesco, the only other place I’d probably consider getting a canvas print from – simply because it’s convenient and nearby.
My only criticism about the product is that it didn’t come with any way for it to be hung, so we haven’t yet put it on the wall. However, Joe tells me that with a quick screw in the wall, it will hang easily due to the fact that it isn’t a flat product. So all is not lost!
We’ve been really rubbish at getting some family pictures around the house because we’ve simply had other areas to concentrate on and all the walls aren’t fully plastered/painted so it’s seemed a bit senseless. We are going to put this canvas in our kitchen/diner once it’s built but for now it’ll go in the lounge. Plus, it’s about time we got a wedding picture on display in the house – it’s been over 3 months after all!
I really love it.
What do you think of our picture?
