Hands up who else is using lockdown as a chance to start projects that have been on your to-do list for ages but you’ve somehow never got around to?

Whether it’s gardening or DIY or something creative, a lockdown silver lining has to be the opportunity to finally get some of these things done.

Creating a photo wall in our living room is something we’ve been meaning to do for a long time, but what with work and the kids and the general pace of life we’d never got around to starting it.

So when photo experts My-Picture.co.uk got in touch and asked us to review their online picture making service it was the perfect opportunity to finally make a start on the picture wall (and if you read on we’ve got a 15% off discount code for canvas prints for you lovely lot too!)

If you haven’t come across My-Picture.co.uk before they’re based in Cologne, Germany and make everything from wall art including framed and canvas prints to personalised home and lifestyle products like cushions and a photo face mask (such a thing does indeed exist!) all delivered direct to your door.

How does it work?

Once you’ve chosen what it is you’d like to order – I opted for four square framed photos to start our picture wall – you can upload pictures directly from your phone or tablet to My-Picture.co.uk, so there’s no need to faff around getting your photos printed off first before they can be framed.

Pictures upload in a matter of seconds, and you can choose what size print you want from 20×20 cms right up to 60×80 cms. You can then select the colour of the frame and whether you’d like your print in black and white or colour.

What about delivery?

Despite lockdown and despite coming from Germany after placing our order our pictures arrived within a week, carefully packaged directly to our door.

What did we choose?

I chose to start our photo wall with some of our pictures charting the arrival of baby number four, from her 20 week scan picture which we have as a digital watercolour…

…to her arrival on April 20.

I also thought it would be fun to have this picture we took on her due date on the wall…

…as well as this one of the two of us when she was just four days old to remember how tiny she was and how huge I had been!

What did I think?

I’ve always been a fan of square pictures as I think they look great on the wall and My-Picture.co.uk’s come with mounts so they look really professional too.

The size we chose are currently on offer for just £14.90 each (they’re usually £34.90) which I think is great value for money and really affordable if you’re planning a photo wall like us.
