A savvy mom has turned her community center garden into a dream paradise with B&M bargains.

Sharon from Wales shared her before and after pictures on social media and explains how she managed to completely transform her garden on a budget.

Sharon, who is stopping by, has lived in her town hall for 17 years abitofme123 on TikTok, turned her attention to her garden after completely renovating her house.

In a video, she said: “The community gave us a garden with bumps and holes. We dug up the garden about four years ago and made it glow last year.”

The mother-of-four removed the concrete walkway with metal handrail before leveling the ground with a mini excavator.

Now her garden is a relaxing place with outdoor sofas, an egg-shaped hanging chair, and lemon trees.

Despite all of her hard work updating her home, Sharon has received some negative comments from people who have suggested that if she can afford a renovation, she should buy her own home.

And while some are impressed with her makeover skills, others say that if she has the money, she should buy her own house.

“If you can afford all that, do you really need a meetinghouse? There are people living in poverty waiting for one of these houses,” one TikTok user suggested.

The mum then filmed another video showing off her immaculate home as she captioned it, “Why would I give up everything I’ve worked for?”

Another TikTok user asked, “I think what they’re saying is how did you get a meeting house when you have all the money to decorate it?”

The mother replied to them: “Yes, I work, they are not given to low-income people, anyone can apply. I had this 17 years ago when I was 18 with a baby and no apartment.

“Everything was done over the last three years on a limited budget, sale items, discounts and over the three year period. I understand people are waiting for social housing, but we love ours, I can’t give it up.”

She went on to explain that she was offered the right to buy a few years ago, but couldn’t afford it and instead secured a lifetime lease.

“All the council owns is brick and mortar, everything else is my home. I’ve spent the last eight years rebuilding my life and home,” she wrote.
