IF multiple lockdowns have taught us anything, it's that we're actually rather good at home improvement projects.
Well if you're looking for a new DIY project to sink your teeth into, then you might want to take notes from this thrifty mum.
Posting on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, the savvy parent explained how she made over her hallway in just two hours.
She explained: "My laminate flooring had started to pop up at the joins and the kids kept catching their feet."
Instead of laying down a new floor, the mum popped to her local Home Bargains to check out their vinyl offerings – and was chuffed when she found this £1.99 geometric print.
After falling in love with the look of them, the mum stocked up enough packs to cover the whole room – which set her back £24 in total.
Showing off the finished result, she added: "I know its not to everyone's taste but I'm chuffed!
"They had different styles including an oak floor effect. Happy kids with happy feet!"
Needless to say, the tile transformation was a hit with other bargain hunters in the group and racked up over 5,600 'likes'.
Tagging a mate in the comments, one replied: "I want to do this so bad in our hallway!"

Another gushed: "Looks amazing! Good job!"
Meanwhile, a third wrote: "Better then carpet I must say!"
"We should do this in every room," a fourth gushed.
