Woman updates her bedroom with some chipboard panelling, but people aren’t convinced by the makeover

A WOMAN decided to update her bedroom with some on-trend panelling, but she wasn’t prepared for the barrage of nasty comments she received about the makeover. 

Jackie McNair roped in her dad to help with the DIY project, and she opted for rough chipboard panels as she liked the texture.

She painted the finished design a chic grey – also popular right now – and Jackie proudly shared her and her dad’s handiwork to Facebook group DIY On A Budget UK.

She said:When you have a very handy dad

“I decided I wanted the chipboard to show through cause I like the texture.”

Jackie was clearly chuffed with the results, but it seems not everyone liked the look – and they told her exactly what they thought.

Someone else wrote: “I wouldn’t have done the wall with the door, but that’s just me, I would paint the door.”

A third commented: “Paint the door!”

She went for a chic grey shade, but dozens of people thought the paint job didn't match

Someone else thought: “Paint door cream or white it looks odd.”

This person posted: “Is that chip board showing through? And the joins need filling.”

While another added: “How do you open the door that would drive me insane.”

Agreeing, someone else asked: “How do you walk around the bed????”

After receiving the abuse, Jackie later snapped back at the haters and said: “I didn’t expect there to be so many nasty comments.”

But some people did stick up for Jackie and her dad, with one woman writing: “I don’t understand why people are commenting sarcastically at the end of the day her dad has tried his best and the daughter appreciates it.”
