A woman has revealed how she managed to completely transform her front door for just £6.
The DIY enthusiast took to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK to share before and after pictures of the entrance to her house.
She captioned the post: "Instead of buying a whole new door, I just used some frenchic paint ‘wise old sage’, along with some white masonary and ta-da! (sic)."
The before picture shows a plain white door and blue walls alongside a dreary grey concrete step.
However, the transformation completely brightens up the space thanks to the white paint and floral wreath hanging on the front door.
The woman was inundated with compliments from fellow Facebook users, with one person saying: "Fantastic transformation."
Another person wrote: "The difference is incredible! Beautiful!," and a third said: "Looks really nice, so much brighter and better."
The woman later added a bit more detail to the post and revealed the process behind creating her new front door.
"I cleaned the door using 'the pink stuff' but you can use sugar soap too," she explained.
"I then washed it with the hose, wiped dry, I then used a sand block from Frenchic and sanded the door, before wiping with a clean dry cloth.
"Top tip is to use the paint as if you’re running out to avoid brush marks, it looks terrible the first coat – but trust the process!
"three coats done & I still have 3/4th Of the tin left. the wreath is from the range. i used a command strip from amazon to stick it on the door (sic)."
And it seems the process was worth the effort as expert Phil Spencer previously told The Sun that giving your front door a lick of paint can add up to £1,000 onto the value of your home.
