Woman transforms boring council kitchen for under £600 including new washing machine & it’s all thanks to B&Q bargains | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed how she transformed her council house kitchen on a budget using bargain buys – and saved herself "thousands" in the process.

The savvy DIY whizz, known only as Mich, budgeted under £600 to give her tired-looking council house kitchen a modern update – and people can't believe how good it looks.

In a clip shared to TikTok (@fajolu_family_home), she shows off the dull, cream-coloured room before the impressive makeover – and it's fair to say it was in desperate need of some TLC.

She then reveals the finished results, with the oak cupboards wrapped in a modern white vinyl, the once black worktop surface now boasting a super stylish grey and white marble-effect pattern and a fresh set of rectangular white tiles.

Mich also gave the walls a lick of paint using matt Dulux pure brilliant white.

The savvy woman captioned the post: "Love a transformation," followed by a love heart eye emoji.

"All materials came in just under £600," she penned.

"That's new worktops, new sink and tap, wall tiles grout and adhesive vinyl wrap and paint."


She noted that the tap, sink and tiles were from B&Q, the worktops from HC suppliers, vinyl from Vinyl warehouse and blinds from Cheapest Blinds UK.

Not only that, but she even managed to add a washing machine and dryer from Very, all within the budget.
