Being the Experimental Mommy, it is safe to say that my brain is logical. I love science, math and anything that just “makes sense.” That being said, I am not very creative. Art eludes me and home decorating is even more of a challenge which explains the bare walls in my house.
We have a lovely fireplace with nice French doors on either side, but I have yet to find (in the 7 years we have lived here) something to place over the mantle. However, we recently took our holiday pictures and one of my two daughters together came out beautifully. I thought it would look great over the mantle but was unsure the next steps. Fortunately, I was asked to check out the services of Gallery Direct.
About the company: “Gallerydirect.com is the largest limited edition fine art publisher, printmaker and artisan framer in the world. This means we do it all: we find the artists and the artwork; we market and recreate the art ourselves. There is no middleman between the artwork and your walls.”
Not only does Gallery Direct have beautiful contemporary art and illustrations, you can also upload your very own photos and transform them into beautiful works of art! Uploading my image was incredibly easy and I had many styles to choose from including aluminum and acrylic framing techniques. After much consideration, I selected to print my photo on a canvas gallery wrap and even customized the exact size that would fit over my mantle.
My canvas arrived quickly and was ready to hang. Best part? My canvas gallery wrap in a size of 24×34 was less than $200 shipped! I am absolutely in love with my Gallery Direct print and it is the perfect addition to an otherwise boring fireplace.
