MEDIA walls are all the rage right now, but they can cost thousands of pounds to get installed professionally.
So one couple came up with a genius way of doing it on a budget, costing them just £100.
Georgia Harper, 25, a stay-at-home mum from Oxfordshire, made the bargain media wall using brackets and MDF.
Georgia told money-saving Facebook group DIY On A Budget UK: “I came up with the idea by wanting a media wall but they are so expensive.
“I joined a group on Facebook with home tips and then my partner used his brain to find a cheap way to make a media wall using wall brackets and MDF.
“We saved lots of money by making a timber bracket frame and using MDF for the front and attaching the TV bracket to the wall instead of having a big bulky media wall sticking out.”

If you’re interested in making your own DIY wall, here’s how the couple did it.
Georgia continued: “All you need is a spirit level, MDF, a TV wall bracket and timber.
“For the design on the front, we used vinyl paper which we got from Homebase for £7, but B&METRO & Poundland also do this.
“You build a base to support the MDF to and you then put your TV bracket to it and attach to the wall.

“Then you measure and cut the MDF and nail on to the board you created, then we used the wrap!
“We bought £40 Homebase white lights to go with it.
“We also used trunking to tidy the wires and hide them which definitely finished the look.
“The wood brackets are £4.25 in Homebase, the MDF sheets were £7 each, the wall bracket was £25, the lights were £40 and the jigsaw cutter cost another £25.

“We also bought Homebase marble wrap at £7 one pack.”
The couple spent just £100 on the DIY wall, saving thousands of pounds by doing it themselves.
Georgia added: “All in, it cost about £100, but if you already have spirit level and nails, it would probably be cheaper.
“It also depends on how big you want it around and how big your TV is.
“We are so happy with it. It’s made our new build have character and gives it such a modern expensive look!
“It creates so much more space as well.
“My top tips are to get someone to help and make sure that you measure things properly.
“It’s created more space and saved on extra wood costs.
“It’s also better for the wall aspect as it’s less heavy than a big stick out wall.

“For those who rent, you can easily take it down and fill the holes.
