    Can you give detailed instructions and photos with the colors used? It's exactly the look I want on my countertop.

    Amazing job

    This is a marvelous idea! Even for those of us that own our homes but like to change things over every once in awhile the cell phones just a fantastic idea in the hot glue should do very well on the walls. I imagine it could also be used to cover up some real ugly wallpaper without doing damage to the paper itself ! Thanks for sharing a great idea!

    Not bad. You could add this as an accent wall in a small room to just add something a little different. Other than labor this doesn't look expensive. Also when you have a teen who wants to paint her room PURPLE maybe you can talk her into doing just an accent wall!! HA HA! Beats using 20 gallons of Kilz to repaint a purple bedroom.
