THE staircase is often a focal point in many homes, but that doesn't mean you have to spend a fortune to make it stylish and modern.
With that being said, one woman decided to use bargains from B&M and Primark to revamp her outdated stairs and it only cost her £50 to do.
After seeing a number of chic transformations online through lockdown, Sarah Takhtash decided to have a crack at her own – and is so glad she did.
But rather than forking out cash on new carpet or timber flooring, the Manchester local decided to use carpet runners from B&M which she secured with the humble hammer and nail.
Proud of her efforts, she shared the transformation online which shows the new monochrome look.
She wrote: "After seeing many transformers on here I decided to have a go at my stairs… never again.Rug from B&M £8.99 Lantern and plant from Primark."
While the end result is impressive, the whole project took her 10 days to complete, she revealed to Daily Star Online.
She said: "The stairs were damaged and needed repairing first.
“Some of the steps were cracked and needed fixing before I could sand them."
But after sanding down each step the rest was pretty simple and all it took was a lick of white paint before securing the carpet runners.
She then styled the space with a couple of cheap accessories including copper lanterns and faux plants from Primark.
Other DIY fans were seriously impressed by the new chic look as they complimented her handiwork and creative ability.
One person said: “Looks amazing! I think I may copy this idea.”
“Looks really nice – well done,” added another.
While a third shared: “Love, love, love – a massive well done, that's amazing.”
