Mum transforms staircase with £21 mural after daughter ruined the carpet

A mum was peeved to find that her 11-year-old daughter had accidentally tipped paint all over her staircase and ruined the carpet.

Lisa Barnett realised that the paint job had damaged the carpet beyond repair and decided to take it all off.

The mum decided to lift the carpet and give the staircase a whole new look.

She revamped the stairs by giving them a quick sand and lick of paint. Lisa then ordered a pretty waterfall mural from online retailler Wish and it only cost her £21.

The design comes in parts so you can just stick it on to each section of the staircase.

Now she has a brand new jungle look in her home and she can’t get enough.

The mum was so pleased with the job she shared the hack on Facebook group DIY On A Budget UK, where people lapped up the look.

On the post, she wrote: ‘After my 11-year-old accidentally spilled paint on my stairs carpet I was forced to make a change. 

‘Thankfully the carpet was old and I hated it anyway. 

‘So I filled, sanded and painted them and waited for the decals from Wish.

‘Still a bit more painting to do but I am so pleased I couldn’t wait to share.’

Thousands of people enjoyed the transformation and some said they wanted to spruce up their staircase too.

One person commented; ‘Absolutely love this. Having the same debate on whether to haul up my stair carpet and sand.

‘Scared what I’ll find underneath though.’

Others commented: ‘Oh my God, that’s amazing,’ and ‘looks good, well done’.

If you like the idea behind Lisa’s new staircase but don’t want the waterfall then good news, Wish also offers a bunch of other cool designs.

You can opt for a trippy bookcase stair mural, a sunset, or 3D designs that are easily applicable.
