A DIY queen has shared the simple method she used to transform her old staircase in her council house.
Taking to her social media account, the woman first shared a photo of her staircase, which appeared to have white paint chipping off in multiple places as well as scratches.
Over this, she wrote: “This is how we transformed our council staircase with a £15 heat gun”.
She then switched this scene over to a photo of herself holding a black heat gun in one hand, which she used to strip off all the paint.
In a third photo, viewers could see how they’d stripped the paint off to reveal the wood finish underneath.
And then she applied a new coat onto the bannisters to give it a refreshed look.
