When Lukas learned to roll he never stopped moving. Changing his nappy became such a challenge! This is how the idea of having mirror over changing unit came about. Since Lukas smiles at the image of himself (he certainly confident about his looks!) I thought having a mirror there would distract him. I of course did not want to spend much money for this so I decided to reuse the mirror I already had. The only issue was with it is that it consisted of squares and I did not like tiled mirror look. This is when I thought of disguising it with geometric design. I got this idea after seeing this mirror in Ikea few months ago.For this quick DIY I used four 30X30 square mirrors, Command strips (a bit pricey, but it does not damage the wall so win win!), slim washi tape.As usual I like to plan my design on paper, but it is possible to be spontaneous and create the look as you go. The choice is yours ;-)
First I made the initial lines that are not on the mirror joints. Then I applied Command strips on the back ready to apply the mirror squares on the wall. Finally, I applied finishing lines on the mirror where they meet so they all concealed. I am very pleased with the outcome of this mirror. The only thing that I am not 100% happy is the colour of washi tape when is on the glass. I was expecting it would be bright and bold, but now it rather look pastel. On the other hand Lukas just don’t care while applying multiple fingerprints on it. I guess I will have to clean it often to maintain the look. Will let you know if this design lasts.Hope you feel inspired!
