STACEY Solomon has revealed her hack for getting fashionable panel mirrors on a budget and it’s actually very easy.
The mum-of-three, 31, showed herself doing some DIY on Instagram yesterday, while youngest son Rex was having a nap.

She said: “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”.
Stacey bought nine black frames and nine panel mirrors of the same size, costing £1.25 and £1 respectively, describing fitting the frames as “the most therapeutic thing ever”.
To put that into context, Maisons du Monde charge £110 for a very similar nine panel mirror.

Stacey used command strips, a spirit level, a tape measure and a pencil to hang them up.
The Loose Women presenter explained: “I put a line in the middle then put two mirrors either side of the dot and worked from there…”
Stacey also added a mirror sticker from her sister the The Label Lady, which reads “You Are Enough”.
She said: “My sister had the best idea ever to make it even more special – Love this”.

Showing off the finished job, Stacey added: “I can’t tell you how happy this is making me. I can’t believe it. For £30 I’m soooo happy.
“I know it’s sad but I just love it. I think I might put more labels. What do you think?
“My sister has made positive ones especially for mirrors and they’re just so beautiful”.
These are the exact mirrors and frames she used for the job
Stacey used Ikea’s £1 Lonsas mirrors and £1.25 Yllevad frames in black, both of which are sized 21x30cm, for her project.
Earlier this week, Stacey and best pal Mrs Hinch sparked concern when they both quit social media with no explanation.
Meanwhile, Stacey made her own wedding favours for 65p each as she plans small wedding.
