DIY fan reveals easy way to give grubby roller blinds a revamp without forking out for new ones and people are stunned | The Sun

A DIY fan has unveiled a genius hack for giving old roller blinds a makeover without having to replace them.

The woman, called Helen, shared in a video on TikTok how she used paint for an amazing bedroom transformation.

In the post, the social media user insisted: "If you want to change the colour of fabric, such as blinds or a chair, you can!"

First, Helen noted how she gave her blinds a quick vacuum with a handheld hoover to remove any lingering dust.

The DIY whizz then added water to a pot of chalky finish paint in a pretty shade of pink.

She could next be seen giving the blinds a light spray of water, which she said needed to be done between coats.

Using a regular paintbrush, Helen then proceeded to carefully paint horizontally across the blind.

She can be seen in the video doing three coats of paint to ensure full coverage.

At the end of the clip, her formerly dull grey blinds had been left unrecognisable by a clever pop of colour.

She panned out the camera to give a peek at the rest of her bedroom interior, showing how the shade now complimented the space.
