Mum gives her bland wooden kitchen a modern makeover for just £65 using sticky back plastic and B&Q tiles

A SAVVY mum revamped her wooden kitchen using B&Q paint and sticky back plastic – and it only cost her £65.

She shared snaps of her bland kitchen to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, revealing dark counters, a tired floor and plain cabinets. 

The mum decided to modernise the room, and bought some cabinet paint in shade loft grey, for £36, as well as some trendy mosaic-style tile stickers for £16.90, both from B&Q. 

Finally she bought a roll of sticky back plastic from Amazon in a chic marble design, for £12.75. 

She set about transforming the room, and advised anyone considering a makeover: “If you don't like your kitchen paint it, just be brave and go for it!”

But it wasn’t all fun and games, as she said: “There were times when I had a few cross words with the sticky back plastic and I wished I painted the worktop too instead of losing my s**t, but for now I'm happy with it.


“It's holding out well and can be bleached, scrubbed etc.”

Explaining how she managed to get the floor tiles done around the cooker, she explained: “I lifted the hob and tucked in the edges.”

The last thing left to do is properly cover the splashback after using the same floor tiles on it, but she had a found a way to work around it in the meantime.

“In the meantime I only use the front left ring as it’s my favourite.”
