YOU don’t need loads of cash to upgrade your home every now and again as one thrifty mum revamped her kitchen for just £55.
Anna Beniaiche, 34, hated the her “bland and clinical” white design, so she gave it a stylish makeover using bargain stick-on tiles from Poundland.

The grey hexagon print looks super expensive too, but thankfully, the whole lot cost her next to nothing.
“I just couldn’t look at the white any longer! I just love it,” Anna said.
“Thankfully, because of lockdown, I could find the time to do it. I have been meaning to retile it for a while but I couldn’t decide which colour or design.”
She spotted the stylish design in her local store in Hanwell, London, last week after going in for household items and instantly fell in love.

The savvy mum-of-two bought everything available in store and asked a worker where she could buy more.
Anna drove seven miles to Wembley to buy 40 more stick-on tiles to stock up for the transformation.
Within hours, Anna, who works at M&S, had reworked her entire kitchen with a plush interior design.
She said: “The tiles caught my eye and I phoned my husband who just said to give it a go.

“There were only a few packets in there so I asked the shop assistant the nearest shop which had them in stock.
“I quickly made my way across London so I could get the rest.
“I didn’t actually see them on the shop floor and had to ask someone to get them out of the stockroom. I’m just shocked at how good they are.”
Anna is very happy with the finished look and urges people to give it a go.
“They were stick-on and are heat safe. At first I thought if I get bored of them I can keep them up for a few years and then take them down but I love them!” she said.
“I hope other people see what I’ve done and give it a go!
“It’s easy to do and most of the time you put something off because you’ve got to pay someone. Everybody likes a bargain.”
