FORGET having to fork out thousands for a new kitchen, as a woman has revealed how she achieved incredible results for just £90. 

The savvy homeowner shared on Facebook how she transformed her dark kitchen into a bright, modern space on a budget. 

Taking to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group, she wrote: “My diy kitchen makeover. 

“I moved in back in August and finally managed to get this done by doing little bits at a time! 

“Main aim was to brighten it up and I’m so happy with it. 

“Total cost was £90ish thanks to everyone’s else’s diy posts on this group. Thank you for all the lovely comments.”

Helpfully, she broke down exactly where the £90 went, so other people could also spruce up their own kitchens without spending a fortune. 

She turned her black worktops into chic wooden counters, using self-adhesive film from B&M which cost £8.99 for a roll. 

The woman then spruced up the tiles using £17.99 Dulux Tile Paint in the shade Jade White, before using £15 Rustoleum furniture paint on the cupboards. 

Her handles were £22 from Amazon, and the bar pulls were £15 for a pack of 10.
