A mother-of-two has transformed her dated 1980s kitchen into a stunning timber-infused space with $5,000 and a few key pieces from Bunnings.
Camille Ward, who is based in Brisbane, recently purchased the property in its old fashioned condition, knowing that the ‘dysfunctional’ kitchen would have to be gutted when they moved in.
‘We wanted to make it liveable for our family,’ the 46-year-old told FEMAIL.
From Bunnings Warehouse Camille and her partner purchased the Kaboodle range for all their cabinets, including the doors, drawers, pantry and kick panels.
‘We also bought our kitchen sink, our gas and electric stove, rangehood, tapware, subway tiles, paints and grout from there,’ she said.
They didn’t hire anyone to install them, instead choosing to do the hard work themselves.
‘The benchtops were made using hardwood panels sold and cut to size at Bunnings,’ she said.
While they might be big fans of the DIY retailer, other items like the light shade, rug, tea towels, stools, clock, kettle and toaster were from Kmart.
A decorative woven floor rug brought the room together, and came from Big W.
It took just two weeks to put together, with Camille stressing that planning was the cornerstone of their success.
‘Preparation is key so it’s all ready to go. That’s why we were able to do it in two weeks. Bunnings has fantastic tools online for this and in store, they are super helpful,’ she said.
In light of the coronavirus pandemic, and Australians being urged to stay inside, Bunnings has started a home delivery service so excited renovators can continue their work.
Customers can now shop for their essentials online and the store will deliver them straight to your door.
