A woman has completely converted her bland, "prison"-style kitchen into a plush, polka dot paradise.
Looking at her old kitchen, you might think she'd have to rip the whole thing out to achieve the modern, colourful new look she was after.
But Jessica thought of an incredible solution, instead purchasing some sticky-back vinyl to spruce the place up at a cost of just £156 in total.
It took Jessica just four hours to make the transformation, in which time she measured the vinyl against all of her cupboards and splashboards, also sizing it to fit the fridge-freezer.
In total Jessica spent £6 on the pot of paint for the cupboard handles, and covered the rest of her kitchen in forest green vinyl (£12 per metre) and the £22 per metre dalmatian print vinyl.
A rug from another part of the house finished the look and pulled it all together.
Discussing the DIY process, Jessica said: "When I moved into the apartment, I didn't have a lot of money and had to budget, so ripping the whole kitchen out wasn't feasible.
"Compared to the rest of the house, I felt the kitchen had prison vibes - it was so dull and boring and didn't represent my personality at all.
"The rest of my house is quite 'out-there' and so I decided to use green and dalmatian print vinyl as a solution that was a bit different and didn't break the bank.
"I also painted the cupboard handles to tie in with the vinyl prints, and I'm very happy with the result.
"I would love to cover my whole house in vinyl if I could!"
She now plans to transform her whole house with quirky vinyl prints, and hopes to use a geometric print in her bathroom next.
And tbh, it sounds so easy we're tempted to give it a go ourselves, too.
