After catalina coupons received (not including the 4.00 one),

Do You Remember The Wall Art Project Post?

Do you remember a previous post on how to do a thrifty wall art project? Well... This was done while on vacation. I couldn't fit all 3 on the wall because of the register that is there, so I will have to put the 3rd section in another room. I didn't put anything in the back because I like the main wall color to show thru. I accidentally reversed it, but I think it came out pretty nice.
