Courtlin Found a Super Easy Way to Do a Photo Wall at Home
I am not ashamed to admit that I'm not the world's greatest decorator. In fact, I have little to no skills when it comes to home decor. I just buy a bunch of random crap that I like and hope that it somehow all works together. Take my living room, for example. I currently have an entire shelf full of Harry Potter memorabilia, a burrito blanket, a piece of Squidward art, a Parks & Rec pillow, and about 60 different candles. But, I am slowly attempting to make my house look a little more adult-ish, which is why I'm excited to share my latest purchase with you!
Since I moved to Iowa almost six years ago, I have never once had a framed photo anywhere in my house. The process of picking them out, finding a place to print them, purchasing a bunch of frames, and then hanging those frames sounded like way too much work. Then I saw a Facebook post from a friend who ordered from this website called Mixtiles.
Mixtiles is a company that has you choose photos from your phone, and then they print those photos onto 8x8 tiles that you can stick to your wall. I had never heard of them before, but I figured I'd give them a chance after seeing how great my Facebook friend's wall looked. A few days after signing up for their email list, I was offered 16 tiles for $99. I took the deal, and about one week later, my tiles arrived.
I wasn't sure what to expect, but after I opened the box, I fell in LOVE. The tiles are made of a super light, almost styrofoam material. They each have one sticky strip on the back, which I was a little worried about, but I put them up Friday and none of them have budged. I even had to re-stick a few of them 4 or 5 times and they're STILL up! Plus, no paint peeled off my wall, which is great. Arranging them without a level was a little tricky, but I managed to get them up in a half-hour and I think they look pretty darn good!
I looked it up, and there seem to be a few other options similar to Mixtiles, like Photosquared, but I don't have experience with any of them, so I can't really speak to their quality. This isn't even an advertisement, I just really love how my wall turned out and I wanted to share the news with any other people who aren't great with interior decorating! If you want more details on Mixtiles, you can visit their website HERE. They're constantly sending emails with sales and deals, so maybe hold off on ordering until you see a really good one!
