    Interesting statement pieces! I have a client who bought a house for sale from me and he invited me back to see what he did with it. He was able to get big lettering and numbers somewhat similar to these and he had an amazing art piece created on one of the walls in his house from it. It was horribly time-consuming , but the final results was really something quite amazing!
