A CRAFTY woman revealed how she updated her dated bed base for just a tenner by using cosy throws from B&M.
She’d grown to dislike the tired pattern on the base of her divan, but she couldn’t afford to splash out on a new one.
Instead she decided to make a chic cover for it herself, and picked up some waffle throws from the department store for just £5 each.
She shared before-and-after snaps to Facebook group DIY On A Budget, revealing her handiwork.
She said: “When you hate the divan base and can't afford a new bed.
“Tadaaaa 10 quid and a couple of hours.”
She revealed she used two throws and cut them to the right size, before stapling and sewing them together.
She said: “I stapled the bottom and was planning on the top, however there's a foam topper on the divan base.
“So I had to sew it. Took a bit longer than I anticipated as thought I'd be able to staple it right round.”
But her hard work paid off, as people raved about her new bed base online.
One person said: “Looks so cool would never have thought of that!"
Someone else commented: “Good idea that’s a great job.”
A third said: “Luv it great idea looks fab.” [sic]
While someone else wrote: “Omg copying haha.”
The B&M throws come in three colours, charcoal grey, blush pink and mustard yellow, and they're currently on sale £5.
But as B&M doesn't sell online you'll need to head to your nearest store to grab yourself a bargain.
