Review | Photowall Canvas

It’s no secret that I love photos. They’re a great way to refresh your memory of amazing things that you’ve experienced, and also to show people what you’ve been up to when words just don’t do it justice. Something I always do on my way home from a city break or holiday is to look through my photos and remind myself of what I got up to, because often so much is crammed in it’s easy to forget things.

When I get home, it’s no different. I often find myself looking through photos of old trips, reminding myself of the things I saw, or ate – yes, I’m one of those that takes photos of food – and just smiling. But when you have so many photos and they’re kept on a hard drive, you don’t get to relive the memories as often as you’d like. For this reason, I love to put photos up around my home, whether they’re of family, travels, momentous occasions…absolutely anything that makes me smile.

As I’ve invested more time and money into my photography, I now have some photos that I really love. I’ve wanted to get them printed larger than a standard photo for some time, so when Photowall approached me about trying out one of their canvas’ I jumped at the opportunity.Photowall canvas packaging

I opted for the DIY kit where you build the frame yourself at home, with one of my photos from Venice as the print. Photowall have prints that you can use, or you can easily upload a photo of your own instead.

Putting the frame together was so simple and easy, and my favourite thing was that I didn’t even have to use a screwdriver, as it’s all screw tops. Attach the canvas, put the pieces of wood together to make the canvas tight and hey presto, you’re done! Simple, easy and great quality. I’ve even already had compliments on my canvas, and I’ve not even managed to get it on the wall yet – DIY is not a strength of mine…Photowall canvas before assembly

Not only do they have a range of sizes to choose from, but there is also the option to have the photo/print as wallpaper. Wallpaper! I would absolutely love to have a beach or mountain scene on a wall of my room!   Photowall canvas - Venice print

    I love the idea of building your own frames. I too have many photos I would like to display at our home but I wasn’t fond of buying expensive frames. DIY seems like a wonderful option.

      I was a bit worried about the DIY bit to be honest, but it was super easy to do! I like the effect of it being the canvas more than if I’d printed and put it in a frame too 🙂 I’d love to try an acrylic print too

    Second person I’ve seen use Photowall, they look really good. I might have to look in to getting my own photo up on the wall at home soon 🙂

      From my experience, everything was easy and straight forward so I’d recommend them. I’d definitely say do your own photo if you have one you really like, it makes me so happy to see my photo up and getting compliments from visitors ☺️
