WE BOUGHT OUR CONDO 5 YEARS AGO, AND I’M JUST GETTING AROUND TO PUTTING SOME ART ON OUR WALLS.
Hey, it’s been a busy few years ok? When we left our rental most of our decor was beyond outdated (ie it was very ‘bachelor’ given my husband had lived there first on his own) and being first-time homeowners comes with a lot of hidden costs. We did what we could when we could, but then something more important came along.
Having a baby. And surprise! Baby stuff costs money!
So I put decorating on hold until the opportunity was right, with dreams of having some beautiful photography printed on canvas on our walls. Then I discovered Bestcanvas.ca – which prints a multitude of canvas prints (amongst many other unique ways to display your photos and art) and it is SO affordable!
Keep reading to see how I decorated some of the wall space we had, as well as for the chance to win a $50 GC to BestCanvas.ca!

In my previous life (ie the 17 year career I had before becoming a stay at home mom) I worked in the photography industry. I actually have firsthand experience on printing on canvas, and wrapping or stretching canvas on a frame.
So, some might say I am a bit…. er picky… when it comes to photography and printing. I know what to look for and I know the signs of good craftsmanship. BestCanvas.ca offers a variety of canvas prints as well as framed photo prints, acrylic and metal printing – there are endless options!
You simply upload your digital image and choose the size of the print you want. I chose a 24×36 inch size for this buffalo picture that we wanted to hang next to our dining table. BestCanvas.ca offers multiple options within the ‘canvas’ selection including how the edging is done (I chose stretched as you can see below) and how deep the frame is.
QUICK TIP: I chose the standard ¾ inch option as we do live in a small space and so having too much depth on the walls can actually make it look smaller!

SMALL SPACE TIP: MAKE ART FUNCTIONAL
Another project that had been on my list to do for years, was to cover this ugly electrical box that is in Everly’s room. Unfortunately, the door to her room opened up to have it glaringly right in front of you. I wanted to change that first impression to one that made it clear that this was her little domain, but that we still could have easy access to the electrical box should we need it.
I ordered this image off of Etsy as an instant download, then uploaded it directly to BestCanvas.ca. I chose the 20x30inch option this time, with the same ¾ depth. Since the door opens right there, and there is actually a closet hidden by the door when it is open, I wanted as slim profile as possible.
Now we have this adorable woodland creature canvas print that Everly loves to point out the animals in! When her door is open, we can enjoy this sweet print instead of looking at an ugly electrical box! And the canvas is so lightweight, unlike a print in a glass frame) so we don’t have to worry about the dangers of it falling.
Pssst – keep scrolling to see how you could win a $50 CND gift card to Bestcanvas.ca as well as free shipping!
YOU CAN’T FAKE QUALITY: As I had mentioned earlier, I am very familiar with the process of printing and stretching canvas on frames. I am thrilled with the quality of work BestCanvas.ca has provided on these canvas prints. The corners are crisp, the edges are straight and the canvas edges around the back are trimmed perfectly.
As someone with experience, I can say that it can be tricky to get images lined up just right, and I choose two images that it would be instantly noticeable should they not be. BestCanvas.ca rose to the challenge and provided some beautiful pieces!
