Woman who hated her ‘plain’ bathroom gives it a monochrome makeover

A WOMAN has revealed how she transformed her old ‘plain’ bathroom on a budget using Frenchic paint.

Alicia Fieldhouse, 42, from West Yorkshire said she felt it was time to give the bathroom a makeover as she “hated” it when house guests wanted to use the loo.

The former carer, who is now unable to work due to fibromyalgia, transformed the space from a “plain” white theme to a stylish monochrome vibe – even painting her toilet.

She shared her £50 budget  bathroom makeover on Facebook, writing: “I Blackjacked everywhere including my toilet and I love it.”

The post instantly raked up nearly 1,000 likes and hundreds of comments with fellow DIYers praising Alicia’s skills. 

However many were sceptical about whether the painted toilet will be long lasting.

Alicia said she has become a bit obsessed with Frenchic paint after using it during lockdown and she has now painted her hallway, a table, front door as well as her whole bathroom. 

She said: “The bathroom was very plain before and got dusty easily as dust would cling to the white. 

“I hated it when people wanted to use my toilet.

“It took me about a week all in all to do the bathroom makeover. I have rest days in between as I hurt when I do too much.”
