LOOKING to transform your kitchen without breaking the bank? One DIY fan has revealed how they gave their dull kitchen cupboards a facelift and on a budget.
Forget splashing the cash on brand new units, they proved that all you need to take your kitchen from drab to fab is a tin of paint.
TikTok user Alexia May shared her budget transformation online with a before and after video that has been watched over 192k times.
To give her dull wooden units a makeover, she began by cleaning all the cupboard doors down with concentrated sugar soap (£1.99)
Opting for a stone coloured paint to give the kitchen a stylish monochrome theme, Alexia revealed she used 1.5 tins of Johnstone's grey paint (£14.99 from B&M).
She completely covered the units – painting the doors inside and out – with one to two coats of paint.
A lick of paint instantly gave the kitchen a fresher feel, with hundreds commenting on the post – revealing how impressed they were with the results.
"Well done, looks more modern and fresh, lovely job," said one person.
"You all make it look so easy, you're gonna make me do it," added another who was toying with the idea of giving their own kitchen a similar makeover.
A third asked: "Looks really good I'm thinking of doing this too did u have to take all the doors off? (sic)"
Alexia revealed it was easier to paint the doors while they were still in place.
She also shared in the comments that she "slightly sanded" the doors down before painting, while responding to another viewer.
They quizzed: "Did you not need to sand and primer the cupboards? looks good."
"I slightly sanded but no primer," Alexia explained.
"The paint was for MDF and Melamine cupboards so stuck really well!"
