Looking for a new way to display prints in your home? Something easier than dealing with frames, glass, mats, and drywall screws?
Enter gallery wrapped canvas prints! Your favorite image is printed with high quality ink directly onto an artists canvas. Then the canvas is expertly stretched across custom made wooden stretcher bars. The image itself wraps around to the back of the canvas so your artwork appears to be floating on the wall itself.
Plus, the gallery wrap comes complete with a dust cover, hanging hardware, and little rubber bumpers on the bottom to keep your wall in perfect condition. Just place one hanger in your wall, center the canvas and you’re done. It’s lightweight and takes all of five minutes to hang.
Here is an example of a canvas which hangs over our mantle!
P.S. Don’t mind the stash of baby stuff in the big photo. With only a few months left before this baby makes his debut, we’ll have to really start putting baby stuff in the nursery soon. For now, the baby has his own end table.
The image itself is special and I have to stop to discuss that first. This photo was taken in the tiny fortified town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber in Germany. There are advantages to having a significant other who travels internationally. Although at the time, Mr. Rotenberg was only my new boyfriend–little did I know then that we’d be marrying four years later and getting ready to start our own family.
The photo was taken on a walk around the outside fortification of the city. You can see the wall itself along the middle, the vineyards around the base, and many of the colorful homes as well. I edited the photo so it would coordinate nicely with our living room decor.
The canvas comes in any size you heart desires. I’ve become a fan of giant canvases myself. The one pictured is 30×45 (nearly 3 feet by 4 feet). I recommend at least a 16×20 size, but generally, the larger the better!
If you are in the mood to completely redecorate a room, then I do offer some excellent canvas packages! Each grouping can be configured in many different ways, but here are some examples!
I’ll be auctioning off a two hour session along with a 16×20 gallery wrapped canvas to benefit Arts NC State Silent Auction on April 28th! Head over here to learn more about this great event to benefit the visual and performing arts at NC State.
