A Kmart customer has revealed her unbelievable kitchen transformation using a host of bargain buys.
Sharing on a popular Facebook page, shopper Skye revealed how she did a budget reno on her outdated kitchen using a trolley full of Kmart products and IKEA and eBay buys.
The most unusual of the additions to the new kitchen is Kmart’s Rattan Sideboards, which were used as overhead cabinets with their furniture legs removed.
Skye also used Kmart’s brand new 3D Self Adhesive Tiles, which have featured in hundreds of bathroom and kitchen overhauls in recent weeks.
The result is a modern coastal kitchen that looks like it’s worth thousands – and not the $500 that the DIY fan paid.
“Our kitchen was so blah before and now I’m loving it!” wrote Skye on the Kmart Home Decor and Hacks Australia Facebook page.
“IKEA bench tops, painted the cupboards, handles from eBay, added VJ panelling to front (leftover from our bedroom), Kmart rattan sideboards for cabinets and of course the ‘love them or hate them’ tiles. $500 well spent!”
Skye added that she used some “house paint we had lying around” to transform the tired cupboard to a deep blue.
The makeover got the big thumbs up from thousands of Kmart fans.
“Wow, that’s amazing – you’d done such a good job. And that price!” said one.
Added another: “Love them, love them. Give yourself a pat on the back.”
Wrote a third: “Bloody impressive. You are very creative and have a great sense if style.”
Others commended Skye for her hack of using the rattan furniture as kitchen cupboards.
“Sideboards as cupboards! Such a good idea!” said one.
