Mum transforms dated bathroom in three days for just £50 while working full-time

A woman single-handedly transformed her bathroom in just three days spending only £50.

Advanced clinical practitioner and single mum Clare Bryson from Perth, UK, wanted to transform a dated bathroom in a flat she owned to increase its value.

But by sticking to a tight budget and doing the work herself, the 34-year-lod was able to spend just £50.

To complete the remarkable transformation, Clare shopped around for deals on paint and even used spray paint for the first time to decorate the panels around the bath.

Clare managed to complete the transformation in just three days while working in A&E and also looking after her children.

She was able to spend an hour or two at a time working on the renovation, and eventually finished around three days after beginning.

After posting the video of her transformation to TikTok, Clare received over 20,000 views in one day, with thousands of people praising her renovation skills.

“I left home at sixteen and moved into a flat and started trying to do it up. I gave things a go I was wallpapering and painting kitchen cupboards back then,” said Clare.

“I’m quite arty and I’ve always had an interest in trying to make things look nice and doing it on a budget most of the time.

“I didn’t want to change the bathroom suite, because it was in perfectly good condition, but it looked dated, and I wanted to make it look nicer.

“I painted all the wooden items with black paint that I had leftover and just bought some more in a spray can. “It was an experiment I spray painted the bath panels, the pedestal, and a little bit of the toilet.

“It looks much better now compared to before. It’s not everybody’s taste, but it’s certainly prettier and more interesting now.”

Clare hopes to inspire other women to pick up the tools and give DIY a shot, sharing her videos on her YouTube channel, Blondy Builder, to give handy tips, tricks and tutorials, and says, “what’s the worst that can happen?”

“A lot of the things on my page, I’ve picked up from people who were giving it away for free,” said Clare.

“I love to give things a second life by upcycling them.

“Last year, when I was doing up houses, I made a radiator cover from the wood from a door frame that was going to go in the bin it’s about being clever with what you have. “You also need to shop around for a good deal look for the best places to buy your paint and materials.

“The most important things are planning and being creative. I think a lot of it is confidence as well.

“A lot of the stuff I do is to try and encourage people to give things a go. I’m a single female, and I think a lot of women don’t feel confident enough to do a bit of DIY.”

And Clare isn’t stopping here, as she revealed she’s currently renovating another flat.
