DIY FANS have been trying out wood panelling to spruce up their otherwise ordinary walls, but one crafty woman tried it on her stairs instead – and it looks amazing.
The stunning design cost her just £30 using wood from B&Q and has now completely transformed her once drab staircase.
The crafty homeowner posted snaps of the makeover to Facebook where it was met with huge praise from fellow DIY fans.
Along with the new panelling that runs halfway up the wall, the woman also painted the top half of the beige wall a stunning lush grey.
She even spruced up the hand rail making it a darker shade to complement the new white and grey design.
Proud of how it turned out, the woman shared the project with members of the DIY On A Budget Official Facebook group.
She wrote: "Had a go at this Panelling malarkey… Wasn't so bad.. I really can't believe the difference it makes to a hallway… Thank you for the inspiration."
She also added that the carpet on the stairs were random cut offs from her "local carpet guy" and said it was all done "completely on a budget".
The best thing about using different off cuts, she explained, is that if one gets stained or damaged you can just replace one step – amazing.
The post has garnered almost 6k Facebook likes and hundreds of comments from people praising the new look.
One person wrote: "Loving the carpet! And the panelling looks amazing too"
While another considered it to be "a marvellous change."
Meanwhile a third proclaimed: "Wow a difference, looks amazing"
And impressed by the new look, another said: "Well done. Fantastic transformation on a budget."
Meanwhile, a woman created an amazing feature wall for a tenner using sticky back plastic and a mirror she made for £1.
Plus a clever mum uses the hole in her sink to fit a soap dispenser – and claims washing up has never been easier.
