For an added touch, Torey also bought $6 globe string lights and a $2.25 clapper board to place on the television cabinet. 

The DIY cinema setup would be ideal for families along the east coast stuck at home in lockdown due to Covid-19 restrictions. 

Torey first stumbled across the idea in a popular Facebook group and decided to recreate it herself.

‘I love this group! Thank you to the lady who shared this amazing hack we tried it out tonight and the kids loved family movie night!’ she wrote. 

The entire setup would’ve cost $30.25 in total, with the most expensive buy being the $5 sink caddies as Torey purchased four.
