Make your home feel larger by adding a Mirrored Wall. Below is the step-by-step tutorial on how to make a mirror wall.
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 12×12 inch mirrors on clearance for $7. Each box had 6 mirrors, that’s just over $1 each! I bought 4 boxes.
There were several ideas spinning around my head but late one night I decided to hang them in my bathroom.
This was my current bathroom mirror situation.
Yup. That is pretty sad and pathetic. I can do way better than that!

How to Make a Mirror Wall:
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, and I used a level for that.
Whew! It is, so that made things a whole lot easier.
That means that I could simply line up the mirror tiles along the baseboard and door frame. (The door leads into my closet if you are curious.)
If your baseboards aren’t level, move the bottom row of mirror tiles up a couple of inches to where you won’t notice the difference, and begin your mirror wall there.
The Scotch Mounting Squares are double-sided and I placed one in each corner of the mirror tile.
Applying one tile at a time, peel the backings of the mounting squares and press the mirror tile onto the wall.
Working from the bottom up, I added my mirrored tiles.
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.
After all of the tiles were up, the wall looked awesome! I am couldn’t help but think to myself how amazing I am, even though I am pretty sure I am not the first person to ever hang 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 notice that before?
OOh well. Now I just have a better view of hubby when he is in the shower! See you can turn anything into a positive!

Our Crafting Essentials List:
- The Cricut Cutting Machine is easily our favorite crafting tool. We use it in so many of our tutorials!
- This Fiskars Paper Trimmer is easy to use and cuts nicely without frayed edges.
- These Scotch Precision Scissors cut like a dream and you get multiple pairs in a pack!
- Keep those started project supplies organized and separated with Stacking Plastic Baskets. I always work on more than 1 project at a time and these baskets really help me from losing supplies.
- Using a level, decide where you want the bottom row of your mirrored wall to begin. If your baseboards are level this is an easy place to start. If the baseboards are not level or you are hanging the mirrors higher up on the wall, use the level, and draw your baseline for the bottom row you can build up from.
- Place a double-sided mounting square in each corner of each mirror tile.
- Applying one tile at a time, peel the backings of the mounting squares and press the mirror tile onto the wall. Working from the bottom up.
