I love taking photos of precious memories when I’m with family and friends but I’m the worst about finding a way to actually preserve those moments. I have hundreds of photos waiting for me to do something with them. I think about printing them for albums, then I remember the dozens of albums I have and never look at. I consider scrapbooking but I’m not really crafty. I could frame them but how many framed pictures does a person need? So, they sit on my computer while I tell myself one day I’ll figure something out.

I was starting to feel like I was one of those people destined to live with hundreds of photos in a digital shoebox until I stumbled on PhotoBarn. It was InstaLOVE! I found them by accident then spent an hour looking at all of the cool ways to have your precious memories preserved on wood items like collages, collage boards, wood frames, coasters, and wood cubes. They print your photos on the item then send it to you wrapped up all pretty and ready to display.
I had my eye on the wood print grids because I still don’t have anything hanging above the sofa in my living room and I thought one of those grids would be perfect.
A 9-piece grid would look fabulous in my living room but since I haven’t scheduled a photo sesh with my husband in forever I knew I didn’t have the pictures to do it. Instead, I contacted PhotoBarn to tell them how much I loved their products and asked if they wanted to collaborate. They were super nice and sent me a purchase code so I could choose something from their shop. I ultimately decided on 3 wood photo cubes.
I did the math and figured that since each cube has 6 sides and I could afford 3 cubes with my code I could have 18 precious memories printed instead of the 3, 4, 6, or 9 I could have had if I went with any other item. Math…FTW
Ordering the cubes was simple. They have three sizes (2″, 4″, and 6″) so you pick a size, upload your pics, and crop/size your pics until they display how you want them. I was tempted to buy a 6″ cube but was concerned that maybe it would be too big because I wanted to display them on my desk. I settled on two 2″ cubes and one 4″ cube. They are perfect.
I printed one of the 2″ cubes with photos of my wedding, the other 2″ cube with photos of my family in West Virginia, and the 4″ cube with photos capturing all of my favorite moments between my husband and me during from our first photo up until today. I nearly cried when I opened them.
They look so good! I wasn’t sure how they would look on the wood grain but they look amazing. I’m so happy with them! I can’t recommend PhotoBarn highly enough. I ordered PhotoBarn wood grain photo coasters for my sister for her birthday. I printed them with photos from her engagement shoot, her wedding, and pics with her daughter. I swiped the photos she had used for her Facebook profile picture so I knew they would be photos she liked.
Whether you’re looking for a gift idea or you want to preserve your own precious memories, I can’t recommend these products highly enough. I told my husband I’m eventually going back to buy that photo grid so he better prep for a photo session soon. 😉
Plus, they have amazing sales going on all the time. My mother-in-law recently found these exact same wood photo cubes for $5 each! You can check out Photobarn and all of their sales here.
