We transformed our bland MDF kitchen for under £250 using a lick of paint & some bargains from B&Q & people are stunned
WHEN it comes to remodeling your home, sometimes all you need is a coat of paint.
One woman shared the kitchen transformation project she completed with her partner using just paint and some countertop vinyls. Amy Reynolds shared her kitchen makeover in an online video.
She said: “Here’s how we refreshed our kitchen using just paint and a countertop adhesive masking.”
“This is the kitchen that was in place when we moved in so this is a temporary fix but so thrilled with the results!”
“I’ll let you know how it all holds up, but by far most impressed with the Rustoleum kitchen tile color.”
Amy’s video went viral with over 1.6 million views.
Viewers were keen to get the detail transformations.
Amy followed up with another video where she shared everything she used and how much it all cost.
First Amy used cabinet paint in the color Nomad which costs £65.
She said: “Our kitchen cabinets are definitely some kind of laminated MDF, doors too. I didn’t do it in the closets.”
Next she used Rustoleum Metallic Gold Handle Spray Paint £8.
She said: “The grips are the original grips. I soaked them in white vinegar and hot water and wiped off any grease then used the Rustoleum Metallic Gold Spray.”

The cost of their vinyl worktop is £50 (including delivery and applicator kit).
She said: “The countertop, we bought three rolls. We used DC-Fix vinyl sheets for the countertop and the color was Romeo Matt White Marble.”
“We bought them from The Vinyl Warehouse but I know they’re also available from places like B&Q, Wilko and Amazon. That was definitely without a doubt the hardest part.”
Amy spent £23 on tile paint.
She said: “The tile color was the most pleasant surprise of the whole project, I really thought I wouldn’t like the painted tiles.”
Amy said: “We used Rustoleum kitchen tile paint in Moonstone, it took four coats. We prepped with the pink stuff to make sure there was no fat.”
Wall and skirting paint £60 and window and door frame paint £35.
She said: “In terms of prep, it was just a lot of grinding. There was some kind of sealer or wax on the doors that we sanded off, but the wood grain effect was still there, meaning it’s still visible through the paint.”
In total, Amy only spent £240 on her kitchen refurbishment.
