A DIY fan re-vamped her bathroom with just £14.
Kelly Eathorne, from the Wirral, purchased a pack of sticky-back tiles from Dunelm.
She then created a pretty pattern by placing the mosaic-style stickers around her sink and bath.
Instead of hiring a professional to rip out her old tiles at an extortionate price, she simply stuck the new ones over the top.
The 39-year-old hairdresser said: "I decided to do the project because it saves me money.
"I get bored easily so it left me with the option that I could change them when I wanted and it wouldn’t cost a fortune to do so.”

Kelly added that the process is easier than it looks – even if it is a bit time-consuming.
She explained: "The tiles are pretty easy to apply but you do need some patience.
“My tips for applying would be to have patience and to use a spirit level as your first tile is the most important one in my opinion, so make sure it is straight!
“You’ll also need a Stanley blade as you may have to cut out some depending on the size of tiles or wall you’re applying them to.
“Make sure the back is completely off before applying as it can stick.”
Kelly continued: "The tiles come in packs of four and are peel-back ones and pretty large ones too.
"I spread them out onto the floor before applying them on the wall so I had them matching properly.
"Instead of peeling the whole back off, I peeled a little off and attached it to the original tiles first and slowly peeled it off using my hands to stick it firmly to the tiles.
"I found this process easy to do, and once it was all done it looked great.”

The DIY enthusiast was worried that cutting costs would have an impact on her bathroom.
But thankfully, the sticky tiles seem to be holding up well.
Kelly said: “I was concerned they would come off because of the water from the shower but they’ve stuck really well and not one has peeled.
"They’re so easy to clean too. I clean them as I would normal tiles.
"I would definitely do it again with a different style if I wanted to re decorate. It’s saved us so much money!”
