Thrifty gran uses paper serviettes and PVA glue to transform her bedroom floor for £12 – with matching bedside tables

A DOTING gran wanted to create the perfect space for her granddaughters when they came to visit - so she decided to spruce up one of the spare bedrooms.

But in a bid to keep the costs down and still create a stunning hideaway, Kathleen McGowan decided to use paper serviettes of all things to completely cover the floor.

But they weren't just any serviettes as the thrifty gran decided to use a stunning floral design which resulted in a a bold and colourful finish.

She even made the bedside tables to match - and it was all done for a tiny £12.

Taking to Facebook, Kathleen revealed that she'd used a coat of PVA glue to seal and protect the flooring to ensure it stayed in place.

Chuffed with the end result, she wrote: "Floor paper napkins £6 , used £6 in PVA TOTAL COST £12. I love it. Bed is from homes Direct.

Meanwhile, many others compared the new space to a dolls house, with one saying: "That's so cute, looks like a dolls house!"

Others were shocked to have learned that individual napkins were used, saying it would have taken an extremely long time.

And while we aren't sure exactly how long it took Kathleen, her effort certainly paid off as it looks incredible.
