A DIY loving blogger has shared some photos of her stunning lounge makeover, which she accomplished using second hand furniture and paint.
Many hundreds-of-thousands of us are now working from home, and you may be looking around and thinking that you need to spruce up your decor a bit.
Especially now you finally have time in the evening, and on weekends, to dedicate to DIY.
Luckily, Victoria Jane achieved her dream living room on a small budget using value paint and second-hand furniture.
The lifestyle writer posted her transformation to the popular Facebook group DIY On A Budget UK.
The page has 129,966 members who share their tips, tricks and home renovations with each other.
Victoria, who runs Victoria’s Vintage Blog, posted the before-and-after snaps to the page and members were impressed.
She wrote: “Before and after: We’ve just finished doing up the living room in our Victorian terrace house!
“All done on a low-cost budget using second hand furniture and value paint.”
In the photos, you can see that before the makeover the lounge was a plain magnolia coloured room with an old-fashioned pine fireplace.
Afterwards, Victoria unveiled a modern, deep-blue statement wall and sofa with a fresh white fireplace, stylish run and statement mirror.
There were also some tasteful, but eclectic, flamingo lamps.
Victoria managed to pull off the look with some budget buys.
On her blog, she states that she bought the new three seater sofa on Facebook Marketplace for just £150.
In the Facebook group she revealed that they painted the fireplace using the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, which costs £21.95 a tin.
She purchased her grey medina rug from Land of Rugs.
It can be purchased in four sizes with prices starting at £54.99.
Her statement mirror was from the IKEA range and the gold flamingo lamp was a steal at £37.50 from Matalan.
As for the on-trend blue wall paint, Victoria said that she used B&Q’s own-brand paint in Antibes and Hamptons.
Members of the DIY group were stunned by the renovation.
One person said: “Beautiful, well done!”
Another wrote: “Absolutely stunning.”
A third added: “Love it, love the colours and love the lamp.”
And a fourth chimed in with: “Looks amazing! So glad you kept the original tiles on the fireplace, stunning!”
We’re impressed at what can be achieved with some value paint and cheap buys.
