ALTHOUGH the lockdown may seem like the perfect opportunity to get stuck into some DIY, getting the tools you need to complete them is a task in itself.
Well if you fancied doing some painting during self-isolation but can't find a brush ANYWHERE then you might want to go rummaging through your underwear drawer instead… hear us out.
DIY fan Cass Bradley was faced with this exact scenario earlier this week when she decided to paint her dated wooden door.
But rather than letting her lack of paintbrush stand in her way, Cass decided to use an old sock as a substitute – and it actually worked wonders.
Posting on the Facebook group DIY on a Budget Official, she wrote: "Love this gloss in a sock idea… it’s so quick to do and no rollers and brushes to clean afterwards."
Cass simply wore the sock like a glove, dipped it in white paint and spread it over the door.
In total, she did three coats of paint and posted pictures of every step on the group.
And to prevent getting paint all over her hand, Cass wore two plastic gloves underneath the thick sock.
After sharing a photo of her pristine white door, Cass revealed that she would "definitely do it again" with a sock.
Her post has racked up over 480 "likes" and comments from other DIY enthusiasts.
It’s so quick to do and no rollers and brushes to clean afterwards. The cover after two coats is brilliant.
One replied: "I was thinking a new sponge too would work, well done – it's a good finish."
Another added: "I did mine like it with a sock. It's amazing so quick too."
A third gushed: "Oooo I need to use this method!"
