Woman transforms old caravan into stunning, modern space on small budget

Must See 09/08/2019

A very clever woman has managed to give an old 1987 Prattline caravan a new lease on life thanks to a little bit of time and some great Kmart finds.

The woman teamed up with her family to renovate the caravan and transform it from old and dreary to light, bright and modern.

The makeover took just a few weeks and came to a total of just under $500 (Australian dollars).

The family purchased the caravan on Australia's answer to Trademe for $4800.

The woman used Rust-Oleum chalk paint from Bunnings to freshen up the brown cupboards, and Rust-Oleum gold spray paint for the fittings, while Kmart vinyl rolls gave the floor and countertops a much-needed lift.

The sofa bed was purchased from IKEA (something us Kiwis will be getting in the next few years!) and was purchased second-hand from Facebook Marketplace, and the majority of the soft furnishings including the ottoman, cushions and runner came from Kmart.

She posted her makeover on the Kmart Home and Hacks Facebook page and the post has since gone viral!
