  • The simple product cost just £68 but looks much more expensive

If you’re fed up of your kitchen but thought it would cost thousands to renovate, think again.

One DIY-savvy mum managed to transform her entire kitchen - and the whole project cost her just £68.

Maxine Taylor, 60, from Hereford, used DC Fix sticky back plastic to change the look of her tired kitchen.

The mum and pet portrait artist told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: "My daughter had used DC Fix to cover a table in her bedroom, which gave me the idea to use it to transform my kitchen.

"I bought the white gloss DC Fix from B&Q along with the marble effect to cover my worktops.

"I worked my way around the kitchen removing and covering each door, one at a time. The handles were removed, washed and replaced as I worked my way around.

“DC Fix sell a small applicator which is used to smooth out the air bubbles and wrinkles as the self-adhesive film is applied. I covered the drawer fronts in the same way.

"Using a hairdryer helps to soften the film so makes getting nice clean corners much easier. The only tools needed to get the look are a tape measure, scissors and a sharp craft knife.”

Maxine was absolutely delighted with how the kitchen turned out, and couldn’t believe it cost less than £70 to do.

"The whole kitchen cost the grand total of £68 to transform and I absolutely love the finished result,” she adds.

"It makes the kitchen look cleaner, brighter, bigger and much more modern. Everyone who has seen it loves the finished result!"

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, comments: “DC Fix, Fablon, vinyl, sticky back plastic: whatever you call it, it’s definitely the easiest and cheapest way to transform your kitchen, bathroom or furniture.

"It’s much cheaper than retiling and it’s so easy to do - just like Maxine, you could spend less than £70 and take just a few hours to totally change the look of your home using this one simple ingredient.”
