I recreated Stacey Solomon's chic mirror feature wall for next to nothing using £1.75 Ikea frames

STACEY Solomon is well known for her creative DIY projects and she wowed her fans when she created a chic mirror panel in her home.

And now one mum has revealed how she made an almost identical piece - and it cost her next to nothing.

Jenna Jessup, 34, from Bristol, saw the IKEA mirror hack on Facebook and decided to give it a go herself.

She armed herself with 32 IKEA frames, half of which cost £1.75 and half of which cost £1, and got to work creating her stunning giant mirror.

Jenna told money-saving Facebook group DIY On A Budget UK: "I came across the IKEA mirror hack idea on Facebook, as well as seeing that celebrity Stacey Solomon had done this very hack too.

"My friend also suggested that my kitchen diner would be a great place to put it to make the room look bigger.

"Firstly, after deciding on the right colour frames for my kitchen diner, I headed to IKEA to purchase the FISKBO frames.

“I bought 16 21x30cm FISKBO frames at £1.75 each and 16 of the LONSAS mirrors at £1 each.

“I’d advise people to buy an extra mirror or two just in case you break one whilst you are assembling.

"I also purchased an extra four frames to put my photos in, however these frames do not come with photo mounts, so I bought some A4 card for £1 and made my own to cut costs.

"The other materials required are a spirit level, which is an absolute must have, a measuring tape, a pencil and command strips.”

Explaining her method, Jenna revealed that the task was incredibly simple.

"Firstly, I measured my wall to ensure the mirrors would be central,” she explained.

"I then slotted all the mirrors into the frames once they were all unwrapped and stuck the command strips onto the back of the frames.

"I stuck them directly to the wall - and that's it! Easy!”

Jenna then added to her mirror panel by adorning it with faux foliage and glass domes also purchased from Ikea and was thrilled with the finish.

"I absolutely love it!” she says.

"I might change the plants in the centrepiece as my wonderful husband bought me some beautiful colourful flowers for Valentine's Day and a bit of colour suited the design really well!

"I also love how everything ties in: the shelves and table centrepiece are almost matching, the mirrors and photo frames are the same and I even went and bought cream-coloured tea towels to match with the chairs.

"If I can do it, anyone can!”

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, comments: “Jenna has managed to pull off a stunning dining room renovation at a cost of £220.

“This is a bargain considering it includes furniture, accessories and her piece de resistance, the giant mirror.

“Considering these mirrors alone can cost over £600 if you buy them new, I think this is a fantastic example of clever money-saving by doing things yourself!”
