Thrifty mum revamps her dated kitchen for just £30 using bargain £1.50 vinyl and a lick of paint

IT'S one of the most used areas of our home – so it's no wonder the kitchen can look a little worse for wear after a while.

But kitchen makeovers don't always have to cost a fortune – as one mum has revealed how she totally revamped her kitchen for only £30.

Posting incredible before and after photos on Facebook, the Australian mum explained how she wanted to give her kitchen a little spruce up while she was saving for a renovation.

Instead of forking out on new floorboards, the mum simply covered her vinyl with £1.50 adhesive rolls which gave the effect of a white wooden floor.

She then painted her dated, yellow cupboards white to make them stand out against her new bright blue splashback.

After posting the impressive images, the mum explained: "It will be a few months before we can rebuild out kitchen so I gave what we have a makeover.

"It was fun project I did with my girls. For the cupboards, I just used a wall paint we already have.

"I know it's probably not the right paint but hey, the whole kitchen will be coming out and the new kitchen will be in a different part of the house."

In total, the mum only spent £30 on the transformation – including the blue paint and rolls of vinyl.

And considering how good it looks now, hundreds of other Facebook users think she should put off the renovation entirely.

One replied: "Wow it looks amazing You have a lot of patience for all that vinyl. Great job!"

Another added: "Looks great, such a good idea for a short term makeover."

"Now you don't need to get it done in a few months," a third gushed. "What an amazing transformation. Love it!"
