What's It Wednesday #164
I was on Pinterest, as usual, looking for a cool idea to decorate the wall on my husband's side of the bedroom when I came across an amazing "Ikea Hack" worth trying and blabbing about.
I wanted to something special so this idea was perfect. After seeing this idea on Pinterest, I literally ran to Ikea the next day and purchased the Malma Mirrors.
It started with this simply framed Malma Mirror from Ikea. I purchased 15 of them for my 3 X 5 gallery wall. Each mirror was $1.99.
The back has this small hole for hanging. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the hole, but me being me, I gorilla glued hangers on the back of each one so that I could have better control over each frame remaining straight (This is in my head).
Next I went through my Facebook and Instagram pictures and uploaded them to my Walgreens Photo Account. I changed them to black and whites and ordered the prints in 5 X 7. This is the best $1.99 I have ever spent.
I cut each photo to 4 X 4 to fit squarely inside the space covering the mirror. I used double sided tape to adhere each photo on the mirror. This will make it easy for me to change out the pictures as my children grow up.
I carefully measured the distance apart vertically and horizontally. I made sure to measure twice, hammer once.
Do you have a picture hack that you can share with us?
