Thousands of us have been giving our homes a DIY makeover during lockdown.
From kitchens to gardens – there have been some creative renovations.
And, this one’s no different.
Jodie Berry, 28, from Neston, gave her bathroom a stunning Scandi-style makeover for just £80.
What a bargain!
The eyelash technician used budget materials and IKEA accessories to totally transform the small space.
Jodie told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk : “My bathroom was really dark and dull and there was no colour. It didn’t feel fresh at all.
“I love Scandinavian interiors and I also love lots of greenery and botanical themes.
“Whenever I have an idea I’ll always head over to Pinterest and search things like ‘Scandinavian bathroom’ or ‘botanical bathroom’ to get different tips and tricks.
“I think having lots of greenery can make a room feel really fresh and clean. My partner Mike and I used self-adhesive floor tiles from Homebase for the floor.”
Jodie came across the gorgeous tiles by chance and just had to have them.
The basket she bought is also from Homebase and the bamboo accessories and plants are from IKEA.
Jodie added: “I love anything bamboo and wicker.
“I think it gives a real fresh, earthy feel to the room, especially when put together with lots of plants.”
The entire room cost just £80 to put together.
The floor tiles cost £12 each – the couple bought three boxes from Homebase.
Meanwhile the baskets wee £15, the soap and decanter were £7 from IKEA.
Jodie’s plant hanger was £4.50 and the plant £6 – also from IKEA.
The young woman added: “The room was just so dark and dull before and now it feels so bright and fresh.
“It’s amazing what a fresh floor can do and a couple of plants.
“The room has been transformed, with a few very small changes.
“I love cheap home stores like Home Bargains, B&M, IKEA and Homesense.”
She continued: “They have such a good range of purse-friendly home accessories.
“I always tend to buy faux plants as they’re a lot cheaper than real and they’re zero maintenance.
“I also love Facebook Marketplace to find a bargain, and a lot of the time you can pick up free things from there too.
“I always really enjoy hunting for the best bargain.”
The makeover proved the perfect distraction for Jodie while the beauty industry was down due to the coronavirus lockdown.
She said: “Little projects like this around the house have hugely helped me during lockdown, as I haven’t been able to work since March so it has given me a focus.
“Whilst it has been more challenging to shop during lockdown I have been doing a lot more shopping at online stores like eBay, Etsy, and Facebook Marketplace.”
Facebook Marketplace allows for doorstep collections, or many people will deliver for a few extra quid.
