Snapbox provided me with the canvas for this post and I was also compensated. All opinions are my own.
Yesterday I shared some updates to one corner of the living room, where I used an antique door to display family photos. Well today, I am sharing more updates to the living room in another corner. When I began rearranging the space to accommodate more seating, I moved Chris’ desk to the other side of entry into the room. Before I moved it, it had a gold framed chalkboard hanging above it, but I moved that to another space, and needed some art for above the desk. I knew I wanted something special and black and white…. I searched online and didn’t find anything that I wanted, but then came to the realization that it would be the perfect space for a family photo! Snapbox Prints carries gorgeous canvas wrapped gallery prints that come in small or large scale, and of course I needed large scale to fill my space. I also knew I wanted a photo that was vertically oriented, so I sorted through the family photos taken by Jalapeno Photography, and selected this one, which I took from color to black and white in picmonkey…
Once I selected the photo, I uploaded the highest quality photo I could (since I was printing this out on a 30×40 canvas), and then selected the option of having the image continue on the wrap (you can also select mirror image or black as well; or you can opt to have your canvas framed).
I was jumping up and down Saturday when a large shallow box arrived for me from Snapbox. I couldn’t wait to see my canvas and hang it on the wall! As soon as I got it out of the box, I had my anchor, screw, and screwdriver ready to mount it!
I just adore it, but it’s full of happiness for me and so personal. Check out the canvas, too- you can see how beautifully printed it is on the canvas. (And if you see Emmy at all, be sure to tell her how cute her hair looked this short…. I am trying to convince her to chop it!).And here you can see that my image continues on the wrap because that was the option I selected.
So now this corner is really coming along, but I need some sort of
cactus fake plant that I can’t kill in the corner to bring in some life, color, and help fill that void.
Adding this canvas over the desk also brought balance to that side of the space; there are now black and white family photos on either side of the room’s only entry. See? There is yesterday’s project!
I am so happy to not only have the black and white large art I wanted on the wall, but especially happy that it is so meaningful to me, and makes me smile. This space is a true reflection of our family, so it’s fitting that our photos should grace these walls. Thank you to Snapbox Prints for providing me with such special art.
