And we’re not talking about splurging on the most expensive things the furniture giant has to offer.

Because there are some basic purchases from the Swedish chain that people just can’t buy enough of and you won’t believe what can be done with them.

Ikea fans have long counted on Kallax, Malm and Billy (to name just a few) to make any void.

No two homes look alike despite being decorated with the same basics – and it’s all thanks to a little DIY.

In fact, some people are upgrading items they already have with results that will make you gasp.

And the best part is that you don’t need more than a can of paint or a few accessories which you can buy for £20.

While an empty bookshelf doesn’t look like much more than that – a bookshelf – the options for turning it into something incredible is what adds to Billy’s allure.

We all know a large mirror can transform any space as it always makes any room look bigger.

But if you’ve ever tried to hunt for one then you know how expensive oversized mirrors can be, but not anymore thanks to this Ikea hack.

Crafty mom Stacy Solomon bragged her beautiful signature mirror last year before revealing that she actually made it herself using a £1 Ikea mirror and frame.

With simple black picture frames for £1.25 and £1 mirrors that fit inside, Stacey, like many others, managed to get it for just £30.

You can do as Stacy did and buy the black frame or make it even cheaper by paint a black slab to replace.

The best part is that you can choose any size or shape you like – just paint them on the wall before attaching them.

Once you’re done, we’re sure your guests will never find out, while you gaze at your expensive mirror.

Well, before you throw away this £5 bargain, check out how much the Marius stool (available in white and black) can transform into a stunning focal point in your home.

She used a rattan pad from her Tesco range and glued it on top.

Now, she uses it as a very nice mini coffee or display table in her living room.

In fact, others are using soft cushions or cutting boards to glue on top – pretty much anything happens.
