A WOMAN has revealed that she was tired of looking at her dull fence so gave it an epic transformation on a budget.
Thanks to cheap buys from Home Bargains, Carly was able to give her plain fence a mega makeover, without too much effort involved.
Sharing her fence overhaul on TikTok, where the DIY fan posts under the username @homestyle_bycarly, Carly gave a step-by-step guide on the process.
In the short 23-second clip, she said: “How I transformed a fence panel for less than £100 with Home Bargains.”
At the start of the video, Carly showed off her plain grey fence, which was in need of some TLC.
She said: “Panels are 25cm x 25cm but easy to cut to size with scissors.”
She then explained: “I screwed the panels in along the top of the fence.
“The panels clip together making them so easy to attach.
“I then used a staple gun to pin it all over for more security.”
Thanks to the six foot artificial foliage panel, which cost Carly £99.96 in total, she was able to completely transform her fence into a stunning outdoor space.
To really add to the makeover, Carly put an outdoor rug, chair, table and some other decor items in front of it.
Carly later explained: “Each panel is 50x50cm and there are four panels in a pack.
“Each pack is £24.99. I used 4 packs to cover a 6ft fence but did have quite a few off cuts left.”
Carly’s clip has clearly impressed many, as it has quickly amassed a whopping 253,000 views.
It has 5,401 likes, 144 comments and 709 shares.
Social media users were left open-mouthed at the beautiful transformation and were eager to reflect this in the comments.
One person said: “Love this!!”
Another added: “That looks lovely!”
A third commented: “Looks great, well done. Big difference.”
Someone else noted: “Ooh I love. I want a garden of real plants but I tend to kill anything green” to which Carly responded “I do have lots of real plants but none seem to grow in this space.”
However, not everyone was as keen on the new look.
One user noted: “I’m worried about loads of spiders living on that.”
Someone else chimed in: “The thing is that it wil lose his colour after a year” to which the DIY fan replied “we’ll see…”
Whilst a third claimed: “That will confuse the wildlife.”
