How to use a vintage photo to personalize your home.

Two and a half years ago, I wrote an article on this blog about a trend detected in the north, blowing up a personal photo to wall paper size.
It was an idea that I loved and so it happens to be one of my favorite blogposts. As a result, I’ve always wanted to do something with this idea in my own home. And if I’m writing about it again, it’s because I’ve found a way to do so now. That is to say, with a little adjustment, but I’m nevertheless delighted with the result.

Let me tell you all about it!!

And don’t miss out on the really great reduction code Photowall is offering to the readers of my blog!!!

In the blogpost I mentionned above, I ended with the next paragraphe:

This is a trend that I would really love to ‘follow’ in my own home. Unfortunately I have structured walls everywhere …. (long live the eighties) I will have to find a smart idea with a wooden panel maybe. In the mean time, I’ll go see what black-and-white photos I can find of my parents, my grandparents, their brothers and sisters, etc.

I put the idea in the back of my head and it’s only recently that I got to think of it again. I found the solution, the ‘smart idea’ of which I spoke and I also found o photo that I thought would fit really well and that had special meaning to me, as well.

the idea came to me thanks to the Swedish company Photowall, that I already worked with last winter. I had put up one of their beautiful wallpapers in my daughter’s room.

Instead of having the photo printed on wallpaper, I chose to have it printed on canvas instead. You van have any image or pattern printed on large canvases at Photowall.

To do this, I first edited an old photo of my grandmother, from the forties or the fifties, to have it printed on a canvas measuring 1.50m by 1.50m. According to what you prefer, the canvases are sold with or without a frame. These are really super easy to assemble and you don’t need any special tool. Everything you need to secure the canvas is delivered with the canvas, including assembly instructions. Made of ash wood, the frames are 30 mm thick (see photos).

I received my canvas rolled up and well protected in a box, with the framing system.
