Disclaimer: I was provided with a 16″x20″ canvas courtesy of Canvas on the Cheap in exchange for a review. Rest assured, this arrangement did not influence my opinion at all.

Canvas on the Cheap Review {living outside the stacks}

What was the first room you decorated when you moved into your place? Did you focus on the public areas like the living room and kitchen? Or did you decide to make your bedroom all comfy and cozy first?

I’ll be honest, there is no rhyme or reason to how The Hubs and I are decorating. It’s just sort of happening. If we find something that works in the living room, that’s where it goes. Same goes with our decorating style. It just sort of happens. We like things that have a story, so a lot of our decorative pieces come from antique stores, thrift shops, or things that were handed down from family members.

Which leads me to the canvas…

The Hubs has a beautiful old Pentax camera that had been stored in some boxes from one of his moves before he met me. I immediately took the camera out of the bag and set it on the fireplace mantle where it sat for a couple of years. One day, I thought it’d be fun to take some photos using The Hubs old camera as a prop. I wasn’t sure I liked the photos when I took them, but The Hubs loved them and kept asking me to have a few printed. I kept putting it off because that’s what I do…

Then I was contacted by a rep from Canvas on the Cheap and she asked if I’d like to try one of their canvases. At first, I was a little hesitant, because I’ve only seen a handful of my photos printed {which I absolutely loved}, but I wasn’t sure how my images would translate on a canvas. I decided to give it a try anyway. I selected one of The Hubs favorite images:

When the canvas arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. I thought the image would be too dark or too flat, but it came out perfectly. I wanted it to have that old vintage feel and that’s exactly what I got. And, gosh, the size is large enough to make an impact in the master bedroom without being totally obnoxious.
