Thrifty woman revamps her kitchen for just £30 using paint and fablon from Wilko

A CRAFTY woman decided to update her tired kitchen after having the same décor for more than a decade, spending £30 on materials from Wilko’s.

She had been living with the same dark kitchen interior for the past 13 years, with black tiles and a black splashback.

She decided it was finally time to freshen it up, so rolled up her sleeves and got stuck into some DIY, transforming the space on a budget.

She picked up white paint and on-trend marble fablon from Wilko’s,
spending £30 in total.

First she painted the tiles in a bright white, and covered the countertops in the vinyl, tackling the tricky sink area in two halves.

The kitchen looks brighter and fresher after the mini-makeover, with accessories the only thing left to buy.

She shared snaps of her handiwork to Facebook group DIY On A Budget, where she said: “Kitchen revamp for £30.

“Might not be to everyone's taste but I like it. Just need new accessories.

“Tile paint from wilkos £15.

“Fablon from wilkos £5 per roll used 3 roles.

“Thanks for all the nice comments I did like the black but been like that for 13 years fancied a change lol.”

Her project has gone down well online, racking up more than 800 likes.

One person said: “The white is so so so much better. Love it!”

Another praised: “Love the new brighter design! Countertops and backsplash are beautiful. Nice job!”

A third commented: “£30 well spent. Much betta!”

Someone else thought: “I wish I'd had the presence of mind to paint my old kitchen like this, I had black tiles from previous owner from floor to ceiling, this would've really brightened it up.”

While this person wrote: “Love it. Makes it look more wider. If that makes sense.”
