Woman transforms her dreary staircase into a bright and glam space and it only cost her £28

HOME makeovers don't have to break the bank- in fact, sometimes you don't need to spend very much at all. 

One woman has proved that she can renovate her home for cheap when she revealed her remarkable staircase transformation – and it only cost her £28

Jodie Hurn took to Facebook to reveal the transformation that saw her dull and dark staircase turn in to a vibrant and fresh feature in her home.

Posting in the DIY On A Budget Official  group, Jodie revealed how she went about the project simply by removing the 'dull purple carpet ' and adding a 'tin of gloss and carpet toppers from Amazon.'

Jodie shared a photo of the stairs once the carpet was removed, and it was clearly in need of a coat of paint – but in another photo after a fresh coat using Dulux quick drying gloss, the staircase already looked transformed.

Once dry, Jodie applied the stair tread mats she purchased from Amazon, and applied them to each step – completing her look.

Many people took to her post to share their thoughts on the new design, with many admitting to  having thought about doing the same to their own staircase.

One person wrote: "Love it thinking of doing this to mine but don't know what to do with my landing."

Another person wrote: "Lovely, I  have done this to my stairs"

The carpet toppers she used are sold on Amazon for £27.99, and comes in a pack of 15.

The product description says they 'provide a more comfortable, silent step and helps protect stair surfaces' as well as 'offering an anti-slip surface for added safety on the stairs'.

For more thrifty transformations, this crafty woman swaps drab and dark staircase for a glittery gangway and it only cost her £36. 

And this mum proudly shares kitchen renovation using Poundland tile stickers – but people question her design.
