I was quoted £2k to redecorate the front of my house but did it myself for under £100, here’s how | The Sun

LET'S be honest – we have a hard enough time keeping the inside of our home tidy that we rarely give the exterior a second thought.

But if you're looking to give your place a face-lift on a budget, then you might want to take a leaf out of Kate Guilford's book.



Earlier this year, the DIY enthusiast – who boasts 10,600 followers on Instagram – shared how her and her partner redecorated the outside of their home on a shoe-string budget.

She explained: "We were quoted £2K to have this done by a company."

As they didn't want to spend a small fortune, the couple decided to give it a go themselves – and the results look SO professional.

To begin with, the pair jet-washed the areas around their windows to get rid of any old peeling paint.

Once they'd done this, the thrifty couple went straight in with Zinsser's All Weather Exterior Masonry paint – which costs £60 for a five litre tub.

And to give their windows a new lease of life, Kate used the brand's AllCoat Exterior paint in the shade Anthracite Grey.

To finish, they painted their front door in the chic grey tone as well and added a pretty heart-shaped garland.

She gushed: "The ‘All Coat’ range has transformed the windows and the ‘All weather Masonry’ range has made our render look like new.

"We love the overall look. The quality is incredible."

Unsurprisingly, viewers were impressed with the dramatic transformation.

One replied: "Oh wow! Well done for the hard work and amazing new house look!"
