When it comes to bargain hunting my Mum is the best. For our stairs makeover last year she found brand new underlay and brand new carpet on ebay from a seller locally that had remnants left over and we got it for the bargain price of £1.98. The before and after pictures show what a fab job Dadof5 did in fitting it and it completely changed the hallway. We also painted the walls with some Dulux Chic Shadow paint which we already had.
We also did our front garden makeover on a budget. We sourced the stones from a seller on Gumtree who had excess leftover from a garden project they had done. Paving slabs were taken from my parents old patio to make the path and we bought lavender from Lidl for the borders which has grown loads! I also bought some wicker edging for the borders which was reduced in our local Wilkinson store. All in it cost around £60 in total.
