Carla went on to say how the room was converted on a budget – using self-adhesive vinyl tile flooring from Amazon, while the brackets, plant, cereal tubs and shelving units were bought from Ikea.
She added: ‘We already had all the bits as I was planning on doing this before we went away in February but never got around to it – and just do happens we got back to COVID-19 so no excuses.
‘I had this pasta already, I promise! I didn’t get chance to panic buy, not that I would have, we were in Thailand and everything was gone by the time we got back.
‘This is just healthy food I should have been eating in place of all the take outs.’
