A MUM has been praised for her clever hack after her eldest daughter complained about having to share a bedroom with her sister.
Lex took to Instagram to share a Reel explaining the room transformation, revealing that she had to use her imagination and DIY skills to come up with a solution to the problem.
"My 10-year-old and 8-year-old daughters, who are 22 months apart, share a bedroom," she wrote over the video, which showed the bedroom with two bunk beds in it.
"My oldest daughter wants her own room so bad.
"Unfortunately that’s not going to happen."
"So I’m DIYING a curtain to give them their own space in their bedroom," she added.
