WITH people spending more time at home in the lockdown, there's been a boom in DIY with staircases one of the most popular projects. 

Brits have done away with old carpets or battered floorboards, painting, sanding and even covering them in wallpaper.

But one mum decided to revamp her hallway in a different way – by repainting her banister. 

The carpet on her stairs was still in good condition, with a dark grey design which looked fairly new.

So instead she grabbed a pot of paint and redid the banister – and spindles – which were previously a bland white colour. 

Now the carpet matches the railing, and she even gave the wooden trim across the wall a lick of paint to match.

She shared her transformation to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, where dozens of people have liked the new look. 

She said: "Lockdown makeover.

"Grey gloss £8.99." 

And to really show off her new hallway she even splashed out on some wall stickers, shelves and a new lampshade.

Dozens of people have praised her simple makeover idea online

Dozens of people have liked her transformation, with one person saying: "Amazing!!"

Another wrote: "That looks great!"

While a third said her hallway now "looks lovely".

While this mum updates her drab grey bathroom floor using £14 tile stickers from Dunelm after she didn't have time to stencil.

Plus this mum revamped her bland stairs for less than £20 & people reckon it looks better than carpet.

And this thrifty woman saves £3k by making a 'designer' mirror using Amazon bargains after falling in love with the posh one.
