Hi everyone, this is my first time sharing a project on craftster, I hope you like it! This is such a wonderful community and I'm happy to see the diverse interests of everyone on here.

This project is a perler bead version of the Mega Man 2 boss select screen. Originally, it was supposed to be finished as a Christmas gift for my fiance in 2007. Well....I definitely underestimated the magnitude of the project  Embarrassed, and just finished it this weekend. But we are both really happy with the results!

Each piece is about 9"x9", and is backed with foamcore to give it some depth and make it easier to hang.

EDIT (Hope that's okay!)

After staring at the project for the past couple weeks, I decided to space the pieces out a little more to balance with the size of our couch. So...here are the pics in the room!


As a side note, I also made the two birdie throw pillows Tongue
