Amy Mycock renovates kitchen for £50 and it's unrecognisable
  • Amy Mycock used affordable materials to transform her kitchen
  • The mum used rose gold spray paint and worktop covers to give her kitchen a new lease of life
  • The transformation took Amy a week to achieve

Kitchen renovations are no by means cheap, but one single mum managed to totally transform her kitchen on a budget by spending a mere £50.

Amy Mycock, 28, from Stoke-on-Trent, couldn’t afford a new kitchen so she decided to try to renovate herself.

Before the renovation

"I came up with the idea as I love upcycling things,” Amy, who works as a part-time care assistant at a residential care home, told LatestDeals.co.uk.

“Because I’m in no position to afford a new kitchen as a single mum of two girls, the only way I could make a change is if I tried myself.

After the renovation

"I went to B&Q and chose the colour grey I wanted. I used 2 Valspar tester pots which were £3 each. The worktop cover was from Wilko for £8 per roll and I needed two.

"I also bought a rose gold spray paint which was £10. I needed two and sprayed my radiator, pipes and door handles.

The new kitchen has a rose gold finish

“The tile paint was multi durable surface paint and was about £16.”

Amy says the project took her just a week, and saved her a fortune.

The new kitchen took about a week to do and the total cost was just over £50

“In total, it took me about a week with juggling work, kids and my three dogs, and all in all the total cost was just over £50!”

Amy says that if you have a look in mind for your home, you should just go for it.

“Look around for inspiration and then once you’ve got the image in your head, stick to it,” Amy adds. "I’ve got a good eye for things when I want to achieve a certain look.

"I recently decorated my bedroom and that was a huge transformation. My kitchen isn't finished just yet but once I’d done what I’ve done, I was very pleased with myself and it’s such a relief I’ve got a kitchen now that I love instead of one I hated!”

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “Worktop covers and spray paint are just two bargain but effective materials you can use to transform the look of your kitchen for a wallet-friendly price. Amy’s kitchen looks amazing and the money-saving community at LatestDeals.co.uk is seriously impressed that she managed to carry out the project for just £50!"
