LET'S be honest – we've been talking about re-doing our kitchen for as long as we can remember.
But considering how expensive it is to rip out all cupboards and re-do the floors, it's one home improvement project we never quite get round to doing.
Ring a bell? Then you might just want to take a leaf out of Sophie Hill's book.
The savvy DIY fan, from Wirral, Cheshire, has managed to revamp her drab old kitchen for just £200 using Home Bargains finds.
And after showing off the transformation on her Instagram page, people can hardly believe it's the same room.
Sophie said: “When we moved in, we knew immediately we wanted to rip out the kitchen as it was dated and dingy, but we didn’t have the budget for this.

“I wanted to have open plan shelves in the kitchen, but couldn’t find any I liked that were within budget."
As they couldn't afford to professionally tile the room, Sophie instead stocked up on packs of £1.99 stick-on alternatives from Home Bargains – which cost her just £40 in total.
She continued: “I also made a little curtain to hide the washing machine, which I bought from the charity shop."
As well as covering the dated fake granite worktops in wood-effect vinyl, Sophie painted the cabinets an olive-green shade and covered one wall in an ivy-print to offset her impressive plant collection.
In total, she spent under £200 on the impressive transformation.
Sophie added: "“[My best piece of advice] is to research the cheapest product, but always look at reviews.
“I love hunting around charity shops for stuff, whether that’s furniture or home decor accessories.
“All of the decor pieces in the kitchen are from charity shops or car boot sales and you can find lovely pieces for less than half the price. It’s absolutely crazy what some people give away.”
