DIY fan transforms her dull white bathroom for just £8 using tester pots and masking tape

IF YOU'VE wanted to undergo a bathroom renovation but the thought of blowing thousands has put you off, well, think again because a thrifty woman has pulled it off for under £10.

Although it sounds impossible, the DIY fan managed to create a brighter, more modern space for an eye-watering £8 using paint tester pots and masking tape.

While the transformation saved on money, it did take patience and creativity as the woman revealed that she created the hexagonal shapes by hand.

The honeycomb design has been popular of late, and so too has the frog tape feature wall design.

So, combining the two, the crafty home owner cut out a honeycomb-shaped stencil from cardboard and taped around it's shape creating an array of hexagonal shapes on her bathroom wall.

Then she used various shades of chic grey, along with complementary yellow, to create a stunning abstract design.

Sharing snaps in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, she said: "Been loving the fablon but now I'm loving the Frogtaping, although we used masking tape for this in my bathroom.

"Cost about £8 for tester pots and masking tape (had the big pot of grey to use in other rooms) and the towel and bath mat were half price in Dunelm and looks so much brighter! "

And after much interest from fellow Facebook users, the woman revealed what colours she'd used, saying the yellow shade was called Andalusia by Good Homes while the lighter colours were created just by adding white paint.

Her post has since racked up over 2k Facebook likes and hundreds more comments, with many taken by the brighter, and more modern, bathroom design.

"this is lovely, specially with the yellow," one fan wrote.

And another said: "Looks lovely, so fresh and bright."

Meanwhile, some others were more impressed by the woman's handiwork and patience.

"Looks great! How on earth did you get all the hexagons so perfectly well shaped?!" one person questioned.

And another declared: "Ah wow I love that, u have some good patience that's for sure."

Meanwhile, a third wrote: "What patience and endurance – well done."
