A THRIFTY homeowner managed to give her kitchen a Mrs Hinch-inspired makeover – all for £120.
She revealed that she bought her house a few months ago, and had immediately set about redecorating the place.
Top of her list was the kitchen, which was a drab and dated beige colour – with wooden cupboards.
The room was so terrible she confessed she didn’t want to set foot in it, let alone cook in it.
But as she couldn't afford to splash out thousands on a new kitchen, she decided to re-do it herself on a budget.
She repainted the cupboards, tiles and worktops, and added some new cupboard handles as well as under-counter lights.
Her thrifty efforts saw her transform her kitchen into a Mrs Hinch-inspired chic grey space, for just £120.
Sharing incredible before and after photos to Facebook group DIY On A Budget, she said: “The biggest transformation of our house was definitely the kitchen!
“When we first bought the house 2 months ago I couldn’t bear to even be in this room.
“The previous owners never used the extractor fan or cleaned the house so the worktops and tiles were caked in grease and the cupboards were damaged due to this too.
“Our efforts have saved us thousands on buying a new one.”
Her post as racked up nearly 3,000 likes, as people were blown away by her skills – for such little cost.
