I recently did a blog post all about figuring out my place in the blogging world, you may remember it included the word ‘niche’ several times. I spoke about changing my blogging schedule and not being sure which direction I wanted to take my blog.
Well. A month later and everything I said there went completely out of the window with the decision to take on a food challenge in January and dedicating a full week of content to it.
However, something I else I took from that post was the need to think about what I wanted to produce and where I can get my inspiration from. With that in mind, when Photowall reached out and asked me if I’d like to review one of their products I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I wanted something that would both make me happy and motivate me at the same time. I, like Blair Waldorf, find both of these things in Central Park. Living in a small town in Northern England, that isn’t exactly in my day-to-day. I love the peacefulness of the park in the middle of the hustle of the city. I looked at their options for cities and skylines then decided I wanted something a little more personal. My mum took this photo and those two people walking down those steps? That’s me, with my grandad. I know, I’m adorable.
As for the canvas itself, I was extremely happy with the quality. It feels very thick and durable. I had my hands all over it attempting to put it together and it didn’t leave any marks and I never felt like I was about to stick one of my nails through it or anything ridiculous like that. The image itself looks incredible blown up. The frame also feels very solid.
The canvas took about a week to arrive which I didn’t think was so bad considering I had used my own image.
Assembling it was a little challenging. The process itself is very easy, but it’s definitely a two-man job, especially when you’re working with a larger frame. I opted for a 90x60cm canvas. Two women assembled this one, one just under 5’1” and the other just over 5’2”, someone with longer arms would have made the whole process go a lot smoother.
The downside of getting one so large? I ordered it without thinking about where it’s going to go so for now you’re seeing a photo of a temporary location on my floor.
Hugo gave it a thorough inspection and he approves of the quality as well.
