A SAVVY mum has revealed how she gave her bathroom a £40 glow-up using bargain buys from Shein, B&Q, and Amazon. 

TikTokker @elocinhome shared how she transformed the entire room using cheap stick-on tiles, a tin of paint, and a pair of handmade shelves. 

And people are loving the finished result, with one even suggesting it looks ‘high end’. 

The content creator regularly shares DIY and interior design ideas with her 349,000 followers. 

In a new TikTok reel, she said: “Budget bathroom.”

During the 59-second video, the DIY-pro is first seen covering her sink in a plastic sheet, before sanding down and spray-painting her tap matte black.

She then used the same technique to transform her shower, applying black paint to both the shower head and the valves. 

Shoppers can buy similar paint online from various retailers, including Amazon, with prices starting at just £2.85. 

The content creator then moved on to her bath, first removing the acrylic panel covering the base. 

Laying it flat on the floor, she began applying bargain tile sheets from Shein to the front.

In the comments, she revealed she used one 10-pack of the waterproof tiles and used sealant around the edges to make sure it would last.

Next, she moved onto the white walls, first painting the space behind the toilet in a warm beige tone. 

Below the video, she revealed she used Dulux’s Walls & ceilings Nutmeg white Matt Emulsion paint, priced at just £21. 

The savvy mum then used the same tiles to cover her existing ones, so they matched the bath cover. 

Again she secured these in place using the adhesive on the back, before using sealant around the edges to ensure they stayed in place. 

For the floor, the crafty woman also used adhesive tiles, this time in a beige colour to compliment the newly painted walls. 

Finally, she decorated the wall next to her sink with two shelves, made from a 200mm plank of wood from B&Q and black brackets from Amazon, with prices starting at £9.49.
