Woman gives her dingy staircase a stunning makeover using B&M carpets tiles and the whole thing cost £1203/26/2020
A SAVVY woman has revealed how she managed to revamp her stairs on a budget after her house renovation was halted due to coronavirus.
She was in the middle of re-doing her home when all work had to stop due to the pandemic, leaving her with a staircase which looked worse for wear.
The steps had all the paint stripped off them, revealing patches of white, green and wood.
With work not re-starting any time soon and money tight, she rolled up her sleeves and decided to tackle the eyesore on a budget.
She decided to give the staircase a fresh lick of paint and picked up some carpet tiles from B&M, then cut them in half and stuck them on top.
The entire job cost her £12, and her stairs look completely different.
She shared her mini-makeover to Facebook group Extreme Budget DIY & Life Hacks, where her project has racked up hundreds of likes.
She said: “In middle of renovating the whole house and with being out of work money has dried up for a bit….
“So x6 carpet tiles cut in half from b&m and painted stairs white total cost £12 and so much better until can afford to do it properly.”
People have praised her for tackling the job herself, saying the stairs were virtually unrecognisable.
One person said: “Brilliant budget stairs, looks so light and fresh.”
Another wrote: “You've really done it on a budget and it looks good. Well done.”
A third commented: “I'd be tempted to keep it like that, looks great.”
While this person thought: “Looks SO much better!”
Plus this jewellery fan used a £1 cleaning paste to get her bracelets looking as good as new.
And this cleaning fanatic used an 89p paste to transform her crockery which was so scratched she almost binned the whole set.
