A YOUNG woman has shared how she jazzed up her council house hallway thanks to cheap buys from the high street.

Celene Francis, 25, explained that she has given her home a mega makeover, using budget buys from B&M, Ikea, H&M and Primark.

But now, she’s given her hallway a fresh new look on a budget, thanks to buys from B&Q.

So if your home is looking a bit dull and needs a glow up, but you don’t have a huge budget, you’ll want to listen up. 

Posting on social media, the DIY fan gave her followers a close-up look at her “council house hallway” as she said: “POV: You live in a council house but have an eye for DIY.”

At the start of the clip, we saw Celene’s very plain, white walls in her hallway.
