Posting in the popular Facebook group 'Extreme Couponing and Bargains' she revealed the secret to a cheap as chips kitchen makeover.

Using simple B&Q sticky transfer paper, she turned the countertops from drab wooden-effect into swanky-looking marble ones.

Her old pine cupboards were also given a brand new lease of life with a quick lick of paint.

She purchased the marble effect Fablon sticky sheets costing just £6.50 a roll from B&Q, what a bargain!

The gloss paint for the cupboards cost her only £18, bringing the total to just £24.50.

Amba captioned her post: "Moving in to my new place this week and hated the kitchen I see a post on here yesterday that was amazing about revamping the kitchen for around 45 pound so today I took myself to B&Q and revamped my kitchen!

"I’m so in love. Thank you to whoever posted yesterday you have saved me a fortune."
