A much wanted piece of art; finally on my wall. Photowall! 

Published May 23, 2017 by Bizzimummy

When it comes to prints are art pictures there are only a few things I would really choose to buy. These include most things that fall within the fantasy category and no I don’t mean anything sexual. Think fairies, trolls, unicorns etc. Yes I’m a little weird and perhaps live in a dream world sometimes but some of those fantasy images are truly awesome.

I remember being a teenager and a certain shop in the Manchester Arndale which only sold posters. The posters were displayed in rows of huge boards to look at, with the actual poster being all rolled up, ready to take. I can’t quite remember the name of the shop but it was here where I first spotted some fantasy type posters that I really liked.

So many years later along comes Photowall UK who make wall murals and canvas prints. Yes canvas prints can be bought in lots of places but the ones from photowall can be made very large indeed. And they have a category just for Fantasy along with many other category choices. 

There are so many images to choose from, I could even upload my own if I really wanted to but I have lots of family photographs already on my walls and I’d already spotted this one.


This being the Castle garden unicorn canvas (it also comes as a wall mural). Now my bedroom wall was looking a little plain and bare and I wanted a big canvas to fill the space. These can be made up to 150cm in length which is really big for a standard wall. I ordered mine as 120cms and I’m glad I did not go bigger because it would have been too big. 

Because the canvas prints go really large it does mean they would be difficult to ship without the risk of damage. Also the size of them would greatly increase the shipping costs. Therefore the canvases are sent as DIY packages. Yes I felt quite nervous about the prospect of making a canvas myself. 

The packages is a very tall slim box. The canvas comes in a roll and 4 planks of wood, metal joiners, bolts and wall hanger. No instructions come with the box but there are instructions on the photo wall website along with a video which makes it look extremely easy. It’s not the easiest thing but not too difficult.I think smaller size canvases would be easier. The wood planks have peel off sticky sides which all stick to the edge of the canvas. I found lining them all up correctly very tricky with them being so long. Attaching the fastener and bolts was straightforward and hanging was so-so. Again due to the size it took a while to balance it straightish. 

Anyway here it is, in pride of place on my bedroom wall.


It looks fantastic and is placed on the main wall opposite my bed, so each morning when I wake up, this is what I will see. 

All of these images are taken from my actual canvas and not from photowall.


The detail in this print is just amazing, it’s absolutely beautiful and just the sort of image I’ve been wanting for years. I am very happy with it and even fairly happy that I managed to put the canvas together without help.

The canvases start at £38. The bigger you go, the more it costs. Options include choice of edging and cropping to get the big of the image you want. The canvas can be purchased alone without the frame too. And they have hundreds of images to choose from. I was spoilt for choice and it won’t be long until I buy myself another one.
