A mum with a flair for DIY home projects has revealed how she renovated her laundry in six days on a tight budget of less than $1,000.

Amber, from Perth, Western Australia, shared a series of images on social media detailing how she transformed the laundry from a dull, outdated space to a modern room in her house.

The total cost of the renovation came to $960 by using products from Bunnings Warehouse, eBay, Spotlight, IKEA and The Sink Warehouse.

‘It’s such a small space and we had a tight budget but really happy with what we achieved,’ she wrote on Facebook.

After removing the washing machine and any pre-existing cupboards, Amber and her husband painted the back wall and installed new cabinets, a wooden bench, sink, tapware and sheers.

The splashback behind the sink was also made using old tiles Amber already owned.

The pair were able to finish the project in a short amount of time because the plumbing and tiles weren’t replaced.

The strategic inclusion of the white walls, cabinets and high sheer curtains made the newly renovated space look bigger.
