Woman gives her blinds a makeover to match her new bedroom and people praise her easy hack | The Sun
A WOMAN has been praised for her cheap and easy hack to give her blinds a makeover.
Helen took to TikTok to share a video of the process, after deciding she wanted to revamp her light grey blinds and make them pink to match the rest of her bedroom.
But instead of forking out on a pricey new set of blinds, Helen decided to try painting them instead.
And forget any "fancy fabric paint" – Helen used a "chalky finish wall paint" and mixed it well with around a quarter of a pot of water.
After giving the blind a quick vacuum, she kept spraying it with a bottle of water before she began painting.
She then took to the blind with her paintbrush, and admitted: "I was immediately very happy with the results."

Someone else asked if the paint on the blind would start cracking, to which Helen replied: "The water and spray thins it so I don’t think that will happen.
