Savvy mum on low budget gives bathroom impressive £100 makeover in just 6 hours

A mum on a tight budget completely transformed her bathroom in just six hours.

Jodie O’Neill, 30, hated her “dated” bathroom in her rented home and decided to give it a complete overhaul.

The small room originally had a dark grey slate-style floor, faded cream walls and a plain white three-piece suite of bath tub, sink and toilet.

Jodie, a student nurse, decided to give the space a modern update, starting with a fresh coat of bright paint.

She used a £32 tin of Dulux one coat paint in the shade Goose Down.

Next, she used a £7 grey grout pen to fill in the tiles around the bath and above the sink to give them a sharp finis which completely transformed the tub area.

Jodie from Barnoldswick, Lancashire, also bought a new toilet seat for £18 and a chic dark grey blind for £8, both from Argos.

She added a £20 mirror with a shelf attached from Argos and fixed it above the sink to give the impression of a larger room.

Finally, she added personal touches including an £18 artificial plant from Next, candles, fairy lights and a canvas painting that she already owned.

In total, she spent just £103 on the impressive transformation.

“The bathroom was very dated and had horrible yellowy walls,” Jodie said.

“My four-year-old son is autistic and hated bath time, so I also wanted to make it a nicer place to hopefully help him relax.

“I love my new bathroom and so does my son. Bath time is still difficult but it’s better now.

“It always makes me feel good when I finish a cheap project.”

After sharing the fruits of her labour on Facebook, fans congratulated Jodie on her efforts.

One person said: “Very nice, much brighter.”

“Beautiful – and on a budget,” another person agree
