Ginger from Literally Inspired turned to popsicle sticks to add some character and personality to her master bathroom. “Popsicle sticks?” you may be wondering. You heard right!

I know we all love a little DIY wall art, and Sarah from Thrifty Décor Chick delivers with this fab Pottery Barn inspired project!

Besides saving money, creating your own artwork like Sarah’s allows you to customize it to your liking. Sarah says, “The size is PERFECT for that spot, and the colors work perfectly in our family room!”
