I received a sample of the product for review purposes.
Our home turned eleven in February and I’ve slowly been doing some updates. A few years ago after some storm damage to the roof, one of the walls required a paint job. I opted for green. If you know me, you know that isn’t a surprise since it’s my favorite color. We’ve also updated the refrigerator and dishwasher, the faucet has been replaced, as has the garbage disposal, and slowly but surely I’m getting a new kitchen.
I still need to repaint the rest of the walls and I want to do something different with all of the cupboards, for now, I updated a little bit of art on the wall to better reflect my personality. Don’t worry, I checked with the family and they were happy with my selection, I promise. Flowers with yellow and green (my two favorite colors combined!).
Finding the decorative framed prints I liked over on FramedArt.com wasn’t hard at all. I just typed in some things I thought I might like to display in the kitchen, such as flowers or even the colors, and browsed through the options. Sometimes narrowing down exactly what I want is the hardest part, but I managed to find the perfect print for the kitchen.
After the order was placed it took only a little over a week to receive and the packaging was fantastic! I love how much protection they provided my print to make sure I received it in excellent condition.
As always when I receive something through the mail, I gave the print a good once over to make sure there were no issues or damage from processing and shipping. I found the edges were all put together well. Due to the frame style I chose I knew it would be hard to line up the embellishments on the frame, though I can tell there was a good effort to match them up.
What I thought was interesting is that even though the edges look great when looking at it straight on, when you look at the edges from the sides or bottom, you notice they have gaps. The gaps were the same on all four corners, so I’m thinking this was just the type of material used to create the frame. It doesn’t feel like wood, but I’m honestly not sure what it’s made of.
I also took a quick look at the mat to make sure it was cut correctly, and it was! The green was a great match to the print and it looks wonderful.
Overall I’m extremely happy with this print. It looks fantastic on my wall and definitely gives an updated feel in the kitchen. I’m also excited about this project because between the framed art I put up on the wall plus the cute butterfly decor I found while out shopping, the whole thing seems to fit together much better than the dragonfly and mirror display I had up.
