My patio was looking drab so I gave it mega makeover on the cheap

Once painted brown, her porch was chipping and looking pretty tired – so she gave it a modern makeover on the cheap. 

Charlotte confirmed that she used one tin of matt black Rust-Oleum universal paint to give her bungalow entrance the ultimate makeover. 

She painted the front door and panelling around the door with the cheap paint, giving it a new lease of life in a matter of hours. 

If you fancy giving this a try, you can buy Rust-Oleum paint from a variety of high-street shops, including Argos, B&Q, Dunelm, Wilko and The Range.
