A STAY-at-home mum has revealed how she managed to transform her drab kitchen into a chic space for just £200.
Charlotte Greedy, 26, desperately wanted to renovate her tired kitchen but couldn’t afford a brand new one.
Instead the mum-of-two decided to give it a makeover herself, and transformed it into a Mrs Hinch-inspired kitchen with a grey colour scheme.
She shopped around at Amazon, eBay and B&Q to source materials on a budget, changing simple things such as handles and plug sockets for a high-end look.
Charlotte, from Wales, said: “I came up with the idea when I desperately wanted a new kitchen but just couldn’t afford to buy a brand new one.
"I then had the idea of painting it all to mimic a new kitchen.”
She shared snaps of her incredible transformation to her Instagram page, revealing how she achieved her sleek look.
Charlotte said: “I bought stick on tiles from a company called Tic Tac Tiles on Amazon to cover my existing tiles and bought Good Home North pole paint from B&Q and painted my worktops!
"They were a horrible shiny black before and now they're a matte white colour.
“I then painted my cupboards using Good Home Durable Delware
Satin Multi-Surface paint.
“I used a mini gloss roller from Poundstretcher to apply both the worktop and cupboard paint, and only used a little brush for the hard to get to parts!
"I changed all my cupboard handles, again purchased from B&Q, and I changed my own plug sockets from white to chrome.
“I bought my flooring off eBay and used a pen knife and spray glue to fit it, and changed my light fitting to a brighter light.
"It cost around £200 to completely change the kitchen.”
Her kitchen looks virtually unrecognisable, with plants and a blackboard adding the finishing touches.
Charlotte is chuffed with her handiwork, adding: “I am absolutely in love with the transformation and it's made my kitchen look brand new!
“Once the kitchen was complete I felt like I could be proud of my kitchen, something I never was.
“Whenever I go in there now I absolutely love it instead of loathing to go and make dinner!"
People are gushing over her new look online, with one person saying: “Amazing transformation!! Where are the tiles from?”
Another wrote: “Omg it’s amazing! I love it! I’ll be doing my kitchen out next year and it’s such a massive job but you have inspired me, I can do it!”
And a third said: Wow!! So inspiring.”
Tom Church, Co-Founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “If you’re tired of the look of your kitchen, take a leaf out of Charlotte’s book and use clever products like stick on tiles and worktop paint to totally transform its appearance on a serious budget.
“I can’t believe what a difference £200 makes!"
Plus this mum was fed-up after waiting for her landlord to fix her stairs so did it herself for £25.
Meanwhile people are using on-trend vinyl stickers to revamp their fridges on a budget.
