Mum transforms outdated kitchen with less than £100 and trendy DIY green paint

A woman has explained how she managed to transform her old-fashioned kitchen of less than £100 by doing most of the work herself.

The DIY mum posted the impressive before and after snaps to the popular Facebook group “ DIY On A Budget UK ”.

The group, who are 116,135 members strong, post tips, tricks and DIY results.

The savvy decorator wrote: “Less than £100 (excluding the floor as it has been put down throughout the ground floor).

“I used Frenchic paint for the cupboards, tiles and the wall with the extractor fan.

“I used the alfresco range ‘Wise Old Sage’ for the cupboards, ’Dazzle Me” on the tiles and ‘Greyhound’ on the wall.”

She continued: “To prepare, I took the laminate off the cupboards with a hairdryer – you can leave it on but ours was chipped in places – and then cleaned it with sugar soap and lightly scrubbed with a scouring pad.”

Then she claims she started painting.

“The cupboards took three light coats, the tiles too five to six coats and the wall needed only one,” she said.

“After three weeks, the paint will be cured and super strong.”

The DIY fan said that most areas have a Frenchic stockist, and you can find your’s using their Find a Stockist page.

Continuing to detail her kitchen makeover, the woman said: “The flooring is ceramic tile planks from B&Q (we got it on offer last year).

“I’m no painter, so if I can do it so can you!”

The other members of the group were in awe at the stunning transformation.

In the before photos, there was no flooring and the counters were an outdated pine and granite effect with multicoloured tiles as a splash back.

After the change the tiles had become a clean white, the walls a trendy dark grey and the cupboard a very 2020 shade of sage green.

The owner also swapped out her metal door handles for shiny clear round handles.

One fan said: “Beautiful colour [Heart Emoji].”

Another added: “Frenetic Al Fresco range is amazing paint! I love it.”

A jokester wrote: “Even my usually unimpressed daughter likes this.”
