HOME enthusiasts often find themselves lusting after giant mirrors, which not only make small spaces look bigger, but make a stunning feature too.
But the sought after look does come with a hefty price tag, which is why one DIY fan chose to make one himself – and it was pretty cheap to do.
To get the window-style framing he was after, Ryan Hassan decided to used black photo frames which he picked up at Ikea for just £4 each.
He also used £1 single mirror inserts from the Swedish furniture store, which have proven popular in the past for those tackling their own mirror project.
Posting in the DIY On A Budget Facebook group, Ryan explained that he screwed the frames together and made a backing out of MDF – and the whole thing cost just £120.
The finished look is nothing short of amazing, with the huge free-standing mirror matching even the most luxurious versions in store.
Captioning the snaps, Ryan wrote: "Wanted the Ikea hack mirror, but wanted it huge and free standing!"
And later added: "Ikea photo frames, and mirror inserts, screwed together and braced up behind with mdf. Frames £4, mirror inserts £1, total for this huge one £120."
The DIY fan regularly shares his projects in the group, as well as onInstagram where he posts dreamy home interior snaps.
Needless to say, the DIY mirror design went down a treat with other Facebook users who were blown away by the incredible result.
"Your posts are my absolute favourite! I literally love everything you’ve posted and this is the exact reason I joined this page. I’m gonna start hitting you up for ideas soon!" one fan wrote.
And another shared: "This is on my list of things to make!! I love how you have done it and seems like it could be less faffing than making the whole frame from wood!!!"
While another gushed: "I just want your home now"
Many others dubbed the design "amazing" "impressive" and "brilliant", while many tagged friends and family suggesting they check it out.
