Turn Photos into Art with Stretched Canvas Prints from UPrinting {Review & Giveaway}

Like many others, I love browsing design magazines and online sites and just drooling over the beautiful homes pictured in them. The pristine living rooms and accessorized bedrooms and immaculate kitchens make me long for a time that my house won't be covered in toys, picture books and random stray socks.

But even when my kids are grown and we can enjoy not stepping on game pieces and actually have decorative accents back on shelves and tables again, that won't change one aspect of the decor around here: the art.

Although it's true that we probably won't have finger paintings and cotton ball + glue creations displayed, I will still most certainly have photographs of my family throughout the years prominently displayed on the walls. After all, no matter what the "in" style of the decade, I'm forever going to be cheered up by seeing the happy, smiling faces of my girls during their childhood.

Is there a mom out there that wouldn't enjoy having a display like this to warm her heart day after day?

Or one that wouldn't sigh with happiness glancing across the room and catching sight of this?


Or even just having a simple, classic, eye-catching display like this to make their heart skip a beat every time they walk past?


As well as having beautiful photographs, the aspect that ties all of the displays above together for me is the medium. There is just something about having your favorite picture printed on a stretched canvas that has the ability to turn it into a stunning piece of art to which others can't compare.

Even better is the way that creating these images is so much easier and more affordable than it was in years past. Instead of a project that might involve working with a gallery and waiting weeks for a finished product, UPrinting makes it fast and simple to print right online.

After choosing any of their standard or custom sizes of canvas prints, it takes another click or two to upload your picture and only three business days until it arrives right at your door.
