Mum transforms her drab porch with a lick of £10 paint & people love the ‘classy’ makeover

A THRIFTY mum revamped her battered porch in the lockdown just with a lick of paint, and people reckon her house looks ‘classy’ now. 

One woman decided to tackle the entranceway to her house now she had some spare time, revealing a fairly tired set of tiles which greeted her every time she came home. 

The plain bricks were coated with moss, dirt and dust, after being trampled on for years. 

So the mum rolled up her sleeves and got some special doorstep paint, which you can pick up for a tenner at B&Q, and painted a trendy black-and-white chequered design on. 

She gave the rest of the steps a lick of black paint and is chuffed with the results – which she said cost a fraction of the price of getting it retiled. 

Sharing her snaps to Facebook group Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It, she said: “A little lockdown project !! Really happy with it !

“I used doorstop paint, did them individually with brush first and roller for second coat…

"Took a while but much cheaper than having it retiled!”

Nearly 2,500 people have liked her mini-makeover, claiming her house looks miles better.

One person said: “That looks amazing, what a difference!”

Another wrote: “This is beautiful.”
