Sarah-Jayne has transformed countertops with DC Fix, made her own shaker style cabinets out of B&Q MDF and even made her own leather handles.

Sarah-Jayne tells the community to save money LatestDeals.co.uk: “When we moved into our house, I knew that was where we were going.

“I tried to make the rest of the house feel warm and homely but the kitchen never felt right. It felt cold and unwelcoming.

“I looked at everyone’s Instagram and Pinterest and thought I could never afford a kitchen as beautiful as theirs, so I thought I could try and recreate one myself.”

She said she liked the idea of ​​a shaker kitchen so went to B&Q and picked up three MDF boards for around £12 each and they cut them into three-inch strips.

She continued: “I had to cut some of them with a hand saw to the length that I needed.

“I slightly sanded the original drawers and used wood glue to attach the MDF panels around each drawer.

“A few hours later, I went in and filled the gaps with polyfilla.

“I gave the finished cabinets a coat of sand before painting them with Wilko Supernova Tough & Washable Matte on the bottom drawers, £17, and B&Q GoodHome Durable Artemisa Matte Paint, £15 .

“When it comes to handles that I like, I love the look of leather handles and you can certainly buy them pre-made but it’s not in my pocket.

“Instead, I found leather strips online for around £20 and cut them to size and made my own unusual handles.

“The kitchen countertop definitely needs a refresh because it’s so full of black, so I used a DC Fix wood grain-effect laminate back.

“I used almost three rolls for £10 each. I got the tile paint from something I’ve done before – B&Q GoodHome’s durable matte liberty multi-surface paint for £22.

“The wood above the top cabinet is just plain strips of Proper Work for about £2 each. I’ve used maybe three of them. And they’re nailed only so it should be easy. easy to remove.

“I also used these in my son’s room to create an adult space and it looks amazing!

“I wanted to make this room warm and cozy, and I think for my family I’ve made a big impact on a small budget.

“For anyone looking to create something similar, I’m just saying take your time and do one thing right away so it doesn’t become overwhelming.

“There are also mistakes that happen and that’s okay. This took me more than a couple of weeks to do the bit buying at a time and when I could afford it.

“In total, it cost me around £170.

“Professionals can expect to spend as little as £1,500 and I feel like I’m on the moon with the money saved.

“I don’t think I can do it but it shows you can if you put your mind to it!”
