My wife was complaining about our daughter rolling around and getting distracted while she was trying to change her. She asked me to set up a mobile and hang it from the ceiling. Considering all the time I had spent on the nursery design I was reluctant to put up a big long hanging mobile; this design was my compromise.
*Important* I have heard of people suggesting to not use string around babies, but I feel that my mobile is safe for one main reason - it is only being used for the change table, which means an adult will be present at all times in and around the mobile.
3" screws #8
A corner wall
drill + drill bits
Piece of wood 3"-4" diameter and min 32" long
(optional - chop saw)
(optional - duck tape)
Step 1: Find a Branch!
Find branch about 3"-4" diameter and min 32" long.
The longer the branch the farther out the mobile will be out of the corner.
You will notice in the second image I cut both ends flat. If you are good at judging angles you can cut the wood on and angle and save cutting a 45% angle later on.
