How To Transform Your Home With £50

Due to the recession most people think more carefully about how they spend their money.  We often think twice before spending large sums of money but we do know that by making home improvements we'll eventually be adding value to our home.  When Tesco Compare Home Insurance asked me to become a DIY Home Improvement reviewer, by challenging me to improve an area of our home for only £50, I was more than game!

The kitchen window was one of the last areas in our home that we had to finish.  We'd recently re-tiled and painted the kitchen  but hadn't got round to choosing a new blind. The area next to the sink was becoming a dumping ground for the recycling and on a whole it was letting the rest of the kitchen down.  It was in desperate need of some finishing touches.  

The following items were chosen by myself and supplied by Tesco's Direct: - 

Roller Blind
Plant pots x 2
Banksy Canvas Artwork x 2

All other items were already owned by myself.


The window needed dressing and the recycling was an eyesore.


The blind, artwork, plant pots and previously owned ornaments transformed the kitchen window.

We re-potted our herb plants and hung postcards and ornaments from garden twine

I'm delighted with the results.  The kitchen is finally complete and certainly looks a whole lot better.

So what do you think?  Do you have an area at home that is in need of a makeover?
