Kaylee Thomas, from Wales, took to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains page on Facebook to share her impressive before-and-after photos.

And while it looks like a totally different kitchen, she only made three purchases to achieve the look – grey paint for the oak cupboards, silver for the handles and sticky plastic sheets known as Fablon.

All from B&Q, the lot set her back by only £60.

“Thanks to the people who posted about the Fablon and painting cupboards,” she wrote.

“Everything is from B&Q – white wood effect fablon, Sandtex exterior paint in cloudy day.

“Painters touch in silver for the handles.”

And the results were certainly impressive, with the kitchen cupboards given a new lease of life while the dated marble worktops looked brand new.
