Savvy DIY fan totally transforms drab kitchen with £10 Wilko paint & people can't believe the difference

A DIY fan has revealed how to transform your kitchen using £10 Wilko paint, after she gave her bland, white space a chic makeover on a budget. 

The interiors fan, called Shade Shannon, uploaded a clip to social media, sharing her mini-makeover using two different shades of grey.

Shade filmed the kitchen space before the revamp, showing off drab, beige cabinets with plain silver handles. 

She said on TikTok: “Kitchen not matching your vibe…no problem.”

Shade headed to Wilko where she grabbed the tins of paint, for £10 each, then got prepping her cabinets to create a two-tone effect.

She said: “If you want to make your kitchen look a little bit more modern grab the Wilko furniture and cupboard paint.

"Here we’re using mineral stone and slate grey. 

“Using sugar soap wipe down so that they’re free of any debris. 

“Give it two coats of paint, you don’t need to use a primer with this paint. 

“Remove the cupboard doors to paint but you can leave the drawers in if you like.”

She picked up some slick black handles from eBay, for £20, with the total makeover costing her less than £50.

Her budget-friendly transformation has racked up hundreds of thousands of likes, as people praised Shade’s DIY skills. 

One person said: “Omg the finished kitchen looked incredible."

Another wrote: "Wow. I can't believe how much paint changes things."

A third commented: “I appreciate this as I can't afford a new kitchen but have wanted one for ages. Hadn't realised it was this easy, thanks."

While this fan raved: “What a great job it looks fab!"
