I'm a mum-of-4 & I gave my council home a glow-up on a budget – we used to all sleep in one room, now it looks amazing | The Sun

A SINGLE mum-of-four revealed how she manged to transform her run-down council house.

When the family first moved in they all had to sleep in the same room because the house way so out of shape, but with a little DIY work it's hardly recognisable.

"When we first moved in all five of us were sleeping in the one room, it wasn't really good for is, I was so depressed," the mum confessed.

Although it was a big job to redecorate an entire house, she managed to get it done overtime.

She said: "The majority of the work I've done myself, I've only had someone to do the plastering in the dining room because it was so bad."

But after watching other people renovate their own homes the savvy mum picked up the skills to try it for herself.

She did everything from tiling the floors, fitting doors and painting walls on her own.

The house had a good base but needed some serious attention, the wallpapers was straight out of the 70's and there weren't any carpets, just floor boards.

She showed off the huge living room, which had definitely seen better days and the old-fashioned kitchen.

"It's a bit small but we can work with it," she said.
