I made my council house look super posh with a budget kitchen makeover – it’s all thanks to Wilko and B&M bargains | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed that she gave her tired council house kitchen a budget makeover using bargain buys from Wilko, Amazon, B&M and Ikea. 

Posting on social media under the username @61thecouncilhouse, the DIY whizz explained that she gave her kitchen a fresh look with some paint, vinyl wrap, handles and decor items. 

Revealing the details of the cheap makeover, she shared her clip with the caption ‘Council kitchen transformation details!’

She said: “Hi everyone! So I thought I'd just do a quick video really, just about where I got things from in my kitchen, how much things cost. 

“So I did change the work tops, I used a vinyl wrap from Wilko, £5, I needed four rolls, so it was £20 all in all, absolute bargain, can't complain.

“Just make sure obviously there are no bits underneath when you're applying it.

“I also switched up the handles, so I did use the same size as the previous ones because I didn't wanna faff about with filling holes and stuff.

"I got these from Amazon, there were £32.99 and you got 15 in a pack.

"I decided to go for black just to match everything else really.

“Then I obviously painted my kitchen cupboards, I did the bottom half blue and I did the top white.

“The blue I used was Hornblower by Frenchic, I absolutely love this paint and then the white I used was Dazzle Me, again by Frienchic and I've also used this for the tiles as well.

“I just got a little pot and to be fair it did go a long way.

“And I also bought the rails from IKEA and then obviously needed to buy the hooks separate and the basket there, we bought that separately.

“I think it was £8 and I've got two of those and I just put them both under my cupboards, so yeah the rail was £8 and the hooks were £4, again they come in all three colours – black, silver and gold.

“The tea, coffee and sugar pots were from B&M, they were £2.50 and they were just an absolute bargain really, love a bargain.

“The tiles, I painted those white, the kitchen sink I did actually place, I bought a second-hand kitchen sink, cleaned it all up and then obviously got rid of the old one.”
