The Guinness World Records world record for the largest sticker mosaic measures 180.775 m² (1,945 ft² 121 in²) and was created by LOTTE Co., Ltd. (Japan) in Toda, Saitama, Japan, on 23 March 2016.

Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest sticky note mosaic; it contains 300,000 sticky notes and was created by The Government of Dubai Land Department (UAE), in Dubai, UAE, on 25 May 2014.

Hundreds of shoppers and guests at 21 LOWE’S® locations across the Midwest and east coast helped to build the 350-square-foot mosaic as part of the Olympic Maximum stain tour.

The tour stopped first in Indianapolis in early May, where the paintbrush mosaic of stained Adirondack chairs overlooking a colorful sunset began. Each tour attendee along the 1,500-mile route could dip a paintbrush in Olympic Maximum stain and personally sign it to contribute to the artwork.

The mosaic was completed today and awarded the world record title at an event in Charlotte, North Carolina, near the Lowe’s headquarters.

“We were able to make a big splash throughout the Olympic Maximum tour with the paintbrush mosaic,” said Alison Bruce, PPG senior channel manager – Olympic stains.

“Consumers loved being a part of the record-breaking process at each stop along the tour, and it was as memorable for them as it was for us. This accomplishment would not have been possible without our customers’ involvement and engagement in the Olympic Maximum stain demonstrations.”
