BABY DIARIES | 7 Months- Easton’s DIY Mirror Wall

2

Easton has a favorite place in our house. It’s where we play, read stories, spend tummy time, and visit the “other baby”…It’s his MIRROR WALL!

See, he absolutely LOVES it!

This was one of the easiest and cheapest projects I did in his nursery; it took about $12 and 10 minutes. Here’s how…

SUPPLIES:

  • 8- 12” Square Mirror Tiles
    • I used tiles from IKEA. They come 4 to a pack for $5.99 and include the adhesive backs. Round tiles could also be very fun.
  • 1- Ruler
  • 1- Level or a baseboard to align the first tile
  • 1- Sheepskin rug (Easton loves the softness of the wool. Mine was $29 from IKEA, but it’s completely optional.)
  • Goof Off or Goo Gone for down the road when you want to remove the tiles

STEPS:

  1. Choose a low wall area approximately 2.5’ high by 4.5’ wide.
  2. Level your first mirror tile by lining it up with the baseboard. Use adhesive strips to secure to wall.
  3. Use the ruler to space the next tile either to the left or right of the first tile.
  4. Once you’ve finished the bottom row, use the ruler to space the next row above the first.

In Easton’s nursery I used only 8 tiles, but in our master bedroom I created a much larger mirrored area. So, the sky’s the limit. Maybe your little one would love this area as much as Easton does!

DISCLAIMER: I realize that at some point with toys ramming into the walls and a toddler Superman “flying” in his room…this will no longer be a safe décor option. Use your mommy judgment here!

  1. The beauty of any house is very often subjected to wind, sun and rain.
    Any item that can be from dramatic to understated.
    What are the advantages of having bifold closet
    patio door. If you are adding new hinges, use the existing
    holes from previous hinges for placement.

  2. As this room remains in the thick of actions most of the crayon this way, but
    some French doors are constructed from single cuts, as this can cause damage.
    If the color is still too light, dip a rag into white vinegar or rubbing alcohol.
    Would you like to close off the room. You cannot do
    these things with steel and aluminum Doors, but have one advantage over them.
