Super simple instagram collage

I think I might be a genius, ha! You know when you have a really good idea and it actually works and it wasn’t even hard? Yea, that happened to me recently.  Are you prepared to be amazed? First, just admire my super simple instagram collage above the old crusty clean bar

Notice anything interesting? I posted this similar pic on instgram right after I finished the collage, but I didn’t even mention my genius idea.  I wanted to see if anyone noticed. They didin’t! And that’s ok, that’s actually the point! So here’s the genius part, can you see it now?

If you’re very observant, you’ll notice I disguised my light switch with a fun little instgram pic! This was such an easy and cheap fix! Before I had a frame over the light switch, which proved to be pretty dang annoying.

Here’s what I did, I ordered 2 sets of 4 x 4 instagram pics from Printstagram for a grand total of $24 for 48 pics. (Oh and I was not paid or perked for doing this, I had just heard great things about printing instas with them and decided to test ’em out!) Then, I literally just taped them up with washi tape, and used an XACTO to cut out the light switch holes for my genius idea! The light switch holes aren’t perfect, but I’m ok with that for now.

I didn’t measure or anything crazy like that. I used the light switch as a starting point, because that sucker can’t move. Then, just decided how many pics I wanted my collage to go across and up and started taping. That’s the greatness of tape, you can move it!

Oh and notice anything interesting about our molding? I just realized I was going to tell you the molding tale in this post, back in August 2013, but never actually did! Basically, we just painted a white  line to fake modling, ha! Any who, this is one of the reasons I think you should save all molding during remodel projects (our bathroom remodel will soon solve this issue)! Do you have a light switch in an awkward spot? Do use instagram? (Follow me here, if you’d like!) What was your latest genius idea? I’d love to hear…



  1. So I had to pop over and have a look see, cause I could not tell on IG! You are pretty brilliant! Did not see the light switch at all, not until you literally pointed it out! LOVE it! :)

  2. clever lightswitch trick! I didn’t even notice it when I saw the display!!

  3. Thats a great use of images and covering up a light switch.
