MAKESHIFT mirror hacks are becoming a firm favourite among interior fans, with Stacey Solomon setting the trend with her budget Ikea frames.
However, one woman has given Stacey a run for her money and created a huge mirrored wall in her hallway on a budget, using stunning £8 frames from Dunelm.
TikTok user Brampton Gardens (@bramptongardenshome) shared a video of their hallway renovation that turned the run-down entrance way into their home into a modern and stylish space.
A fresh coat of paint and colour block design on the walls instantly made the hallway feel lighter and fresher, while the budget mirrored frames made the space seem so much bigger.
The couple behind the account used six of the Essentials 55cm Square Mirror in white, costing them a purse-friendly total of £48.
Arranging them in a grid on the side of the wall, the mirrors made one huge statement mirror that added a super stylish touch to the hallway and people were loving it.
When one person asked how they had hung the mirrors, the couple replied: "They have two hooks on the backs of them, we used small picture hanging pins, works perfectly."
Another person revealed they did the same – but double the size – in their own home and stuck them down with command strips.
They posted: "I got 12 of these and made my bedroom wall into a big mirror. I hung them up with command strips."
"This looks amazing," wrote another person, while a fourth added: "Love this mirror look."
Keen to give it a go themselves, one viewer revealed they'd already snapped up enough mirrors to recreate it, as they said: "Just bought six."
The finished look rivals Loose Women star Stacey's own makeshift mirror she created using £1 Ikea frames and mirror sheets.
Desperately wanting a panel mirror but reluctant to splash out on the expensive designs on the market, self-confessed crafts lover Stacey decided to create her own.
She told fans on Instagram: "I'm going to try and make a giant mirror. I feel like I really need something in these big white spaces (in her living room) and I love those giant panel mirrors but they're so expensive.
"So I bought these black frames and mirrors from Ikea, all together cost £30 so I really hope I can make it look nice".
She bought nine black Yllevad frames and nine panel Lonsas mirrors all the same size (21×30) costing £1.25 and £1 respectively.
Stacey stuck her frames to the wall using command strips and a spirit level and was chuffed with her efforts.
"I can't tell you how happy this is making me," she revealed at the time. "I can't believe it. For £30 I'm soooo happy."
Savvy and stylish, what's not to love.
Meanwhile, one woman transformed her tiny garden into a stunning outdoor space on a budget using bargains from eBay and B&M.
Plus, one thrifty mum overhauled her stairs for just £10 using Poundland buys and her DIY skills.
And, another mum turns the cupboard under her stairs into a giant playroom for her kids with its very own roof and kitchen.
