Woman transforms her tired kitchen using paint from B&Q and a hairdryer – and it only cost £68

IF you’re fed up of your kitchen but thought it would cost thousands to renovate, think again.

One DIY-savvy mum managed to transform her entire kitchen – and the whole project cost her just £68. 

Maxine Taylor, 60, from Hereford, used DC Fix sticky back plastic to change the look of her tired kitchen.

The mum and pet portrait artist told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: "My daughter had used DC Fix to cover a table in her bedroom, which gave me the idea to use it to transform my kitchen. 

"I bought the white gloss DC Fix from B&Q along with the marble effect to cover my worktops. 

"I worked my way around the kitchen removing and covering each door, one at a time. The handles were removed, washed and replaced as I worked my way around. 

“DC Fix sell a small applicator which is used to smooth out the air bubbles and wrinkles as the self-adhesive film is applied. I covered the drawer fronts in the same way.

"Using a hairdryer helps to soften the film so makes getting nice clean corners much easier.

"The only tools needed to get the look are a tape measure, scissors and a sharp craft knife.”

Maxine was absolutely delighted with how the kitchen turned out, and couldn’t believe it cost less than £70 to do.

She added: "The whole kitchen cost a grand total of £68 to transform and I absolutely love the finished result.

"It makes the kitchen look cleaner, brighter, bigger and much more modern. Everyone who has seen it loves the finished result!"

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, comments: “DC Fix, Fablon, vinyl, sticky back plastic: whatever you call it, it’s definitely the easiest and cheapest way to transform your kitchen, bathroom or furniture. 

“It’s much cheaper than retiling and it’s so easy to do – just like Maxine, you could spend less than £70 and take just a few hours to totally change the look of your home using this one simple ingredient.”

Meanwhile, another mum updated her old kitchen with marble surface wrap from B&Q and freebie breakfast bar.
