A THRIFTY couple decided to paint their patio deck and the results show you don't need to spend hundreds on redoing your patio.
The couple have a dedicated Instagram account to show-off their DIY home and garden transformation tips.
Rebecca and Jamie posted on their account, ournewhomeatno8 to demonstrate how she brought new life into her patio slabs so easily and cheaply.
In the video she shows how the patio looked before and said that the slabs were so discoloured and stained to begin with, but instead of ripping them up and putting new slabs down, Rebecca and Jamie decided to paint them.
Rebecca said the paint pot cost a measly £31 and and said they painted the area you can see in the video, the path leading up to it and the area outside the patio doors TWICE and still have half of the pot left.
Users asked which paint the couple had used to transform their patio and Rebecca said she used Sandtex Masonry Paint in the shade Plymouth Grey.
The paint is specifically used for outdoors and works great on concrete.
