New Apartment, New Art: CanvasPop Customized Art Prints

By: Finance Foodie

Now that the Mister and I have finally moved into our new home, it's time to start decorating! Our previous apartment had strict rental rules (i.e. no poking holes in the walls to hang art, no painting the walls any other color but white) but now that we have our own place, we can make the apartment really feel like a real home. Therefore, when CanvasPop gave us the opportunity to create our own customized art print as a house warming gift, we absolutely said, "Where do we start?!?"
CanvasPop is known for their high quality canvas prints (which can be made with any image, any size and any resolution) but we decided to try their new framed art service. The process was super easy - all we had to do was select a photo of our choice, size on print and frame color through the CanvasPop website and done! A few days later, we got an email with a proof of our finished product for us to approve before they could proceed.

A few days later our final product arrived in the mail! And now I present....the final product! A 16" by 20" espresso wood framed print of us (guess we don't need a mirror now LOL!)
CanvasPop prints every image on premium 345gsm semi-gloss baryta fine art paper which results in a crisp, high-quality and detailed image print.  The wood frame was sturdy and of high quality. The print comes ready to mount (even including the nails - these guys think of everything!)
So with everything provided - the print was ready to be hung! Thanks to CanvasPop, our walls just got brighter, cooler and a bit POP-ier!

Congrats msrodeobrat!

By: Finance Foodie

As the weather has finally turned warm, there is no better way to celebrate than a peaceful and elegant Sunday brunch. This past weekend, the Mister and I headed to Davio's to check out their brand new brunch menu. I have always been a fan of their high quality steaks for dinner so I was excited to check out what they had in store for lunch!
