I wanted to give my house some kerb appeal – people are amazed at the before and afters, it was so easy to do too | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed how she transformed the front of her house to give it some instant “kerb appeal”.

The home whizz shared incredible before and after shots of her DIY project – and it’s extremely easy to copy.

TikTok user @ourbarncottage showed how the front of her house looked old and patchy and not very eye-catching at all.

However, after some TLC, she was able to make it look colourful, beautiful and stylish with minimal effort.

The project included painting her door bright blue, and then making the door and window frames black too.

She then added plant pots to the front and gold features for the door, such as a new knocker and handle.

However, it wasn’t all plain-sailing.

She wrote in a video: “Not every DIY goes smoothly. 

“I have painted doors in the past but not uPVC and when I looked for advice I saw that a good paintbrush would work best with this paint as it’s self levelling. 

“BUT it was so patchy I almost gave up.

“I ended up using a foam roller and the result was so much better – thankfully.”

And people were also quick to criticise her door knocker.

She replied: “I had a few comments when I shared me painting this door and a few suggestions/criticisms such as the door knocker.

“It is now centred and the metal bar at the bottom of the door I have now painted black. 

“Much better than it was previously.”

Many people were impressed, with one saying: “I think this is absolutely brilliant.”
