Learn how to make a room feel larger by adding a Mirrored Wall. An easy DIY craft tutorial idea for home decor that you can do!
I love my new house, but there are still a lot of blank empty walls that I need to do something with. Around the time that we moved in, I found boxes of 12 x 12 mirrors on clearance for $7. Each box had 6 mirrors, that’s just over a $1 each! I bought 4 boxes. I had several ideas about what I was going to do with them, but late one night while my husband was far away in Germany on a business trip I decided to hang them in my bathroom.
This was my current bathroom mirror situation.
Yup. That is pretty sad and pathetic. I could do way better than that!
To install I needed a level, and then when I bought the mirrors I also bought packages of Scotch Indoor Mounting Squares.
The first step was to make sure that the wall I wanted to put the mirrors on was actually straight against the door frame and floor. Whew! It is, so that made things a whole lot easier. I just lined up the mirrored squares along the baseboard and door frame. (The door leads into my closet if you are curious.)
The Scotch Mounting Squares are double sided so I started by sticking four to each square, one in each corner. Peeled the backings to one mirrored square at a time, and stuck them to the wall.
Working from the bottom up, I added my mirrored squares.
The next six are up. It is looking cool already!
The whole project took about an hour, which is good because it was about 1 in the morning when I started.
When all of the squares are up, the wall looks awesome. I am thinking to myself how amazing I am, even though I am pretty sure I am not the first person to ever hand mirrors on their wall.
Then I noticed something…
The toilet is right across from the mirror!
All of my kudos and pats on the back went away. Oops! Why didn’t I see that before?
Ultimately I decided “Oh well”. Now I just have a better view of hubby when he is in the shower! See you can turn anything into a positive!
