Family transforms rickety old caravan into stylish holiday home for under £300 with bargains from B&M

A FAMILY turned a rickety old caravan into a holiday home for less than £300 using bargains bought from discount store B&M.

Nikki Fulcher, 35, and husband Chris, 37, spent just a month of lockdown completing the amazing transformation.



The couple, who live in Penzance, Cornwall, completely overhauled the caravan – which dates from the 1990s – by repainting beige cabinets and buying cheap furniture.

And at the weekend, they enjoyed their first trip away in it with kids Arlo, 13, Isla, 11, and Joss, nine.

Admin assistant Nikki said: "When I was little, my gran always used to visit in a caravan and she would stay there overnight – I've wanted one of my own ever since.

"It made sense to get a caravan as we've always loved going away as a family for staycations and I knew the kids would love it.

"Money has been tight in lockdown so we knew we had to do it all on a budget."

The cash-savvy couple spent just £2 on curtains, which Nikki transformed with dye, as well as £100 on laminate flooring, £20 on paint and £20 on doorknobs and throws.

Nikki then added the finishing touches after a visit to B&M.

The mum said: "We took it a few miles away from where we live in Cornwall for a trial and we can't wait to take it to even more places.

"I wanted something light and modern but with a beachy theme – I like yellows and blues so made sure to incorporate them and it's really brightened up the place.

"I had a look on Pinterest to get an idea of what I wanted and then we just ran with it – we're delighted with it and it only took us a month to complete on and off after work."

Last week, Sun Online told the story of 12-year-old Bea Levache, who transformed their home in just a week between her homeschool lessons.

The youngster from Kent used a power drill and a hand saw to redecorate her home's utility room, stairs and office for just £50.

And in other amazing home transformations, this DIY fan transformed her tired patio tiles using £7 stencil, while this woman made a stunning window seat for just £30 using leftover wood and cot mattress.

Plus Stacey Solomon created a DIY beauty station using old crate to ‘keep her mind busy’ in lockdown.
