Thank you to Photowall for partnering with me for this post. I was not financially compensated by Photowall, but I did receive my choice of canvas artwork to review in exchange for this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
Hi all. I’m happy to say we finally have one portion of our living room complete. Yes, it has taken a while. Recently, our washer AND dryer broke, so we had to re-focus our efforts in the laundry room area to get it prepared for a new (used) set. But clean clothes aside, let’s get back to the living room and how excited I was to be asked by Photowall to review one of their products. They specialize in wall murals, wall papers and canvas art, They have a very wide selection of styles to choose from, which includes creating your own piece of photo art, if you feel so inspired.

In making my choice, I decided to go with a piece of canvas art from their wide array of art theme options which include landscapes, nature, geometric patterns and children’s art, to name a few. They have a LOT to choose from. I honestly couldn’t make up my mind at first.
I focused on maps and landscapes and I finally choose this American map subway canvas art called US Modern Blue.
I also choose the “do-it-yourself” frame option (this option can save in shipping costs).
Placing the order was easy enough. You can choose the size you want within limitations. Actually, the trickiest part was figuring out the correct dimensions for my space verses the piece of artwork of choice. A measuring tape was my friend for this part because trying to guess would have got me in trouble. I ended up going with a way smaller frame sized than I thought I needed.
With the “do-it-yourself” frame, the artwork image sheet is rolled like gift wrap and shipped in an elongated box with the unattached wooden frame pieces all ready to be assembled.
For the assembly part, we received easy to follow directions and all of the necessary parts and pieces (nothing was missing, yay!!). The kit also included a pair of heavy duty mounting brackets as shown in this picture above. Everything was precisely pre-measured and once assembled, fit together perfectly.
We decided to use the wire and D-ring method for hanging, (which was not included,) but was easy enough to mount to the finished piece, just the same.
All assembled, this is one sturdy piece of canvas art that has really made the first finished portion of our living room look complete and put together.
Here is a before shot of the area.
This is the after.
Rustic shelves and a new pillow have also been added. You may notice I’ve switched around the decor on the shelves in the photos. I was trying out a few ideas with what I had on hand.
Living room update: TV Area (Left)
Photowall canvas art: US Modern Blue.
Rustic shelves, inspired by these farmhouse shelves from Twelve on Main.
Wooden pillow crate has been stained.
A new throw pillow has been added.
As we are doing this room in bits and pieces, it feels motivating to have one section done with a fresh new piece of artwork that sets off a whole new look for this room.
