A couple has managed to transform their garden into a luxurious outdoor kitchen for just £150. Robyn, who is known online as @the_house_acc, shared the DIY project with her 226,500 followers on TikTok. The couple decided to build a wooden kitchen around their barbecue, in an unused corner of their patio. Robyn’s partner cut decking boards to size and created two pillar frames to sit either side of the barbecue as the base. The rest of the structure was built using the decking boards. Robyn then painted the entire thing in a charcoal grey paint. The finished structure was completed with a bargain ceramic sink from eBay, which doubles up as an ice bucket when they’re hosting, and a pizza oven.
The video gained more than 4,900 likes and 146,000 views on TikTok. Fans loved the budget DIY project, and some vowed to attempt the same in their gardens. The added extras of the project, such as the ceramic sink and pizza oven, caught people’s attention. The Argos Home Table Top Pizza Oven, which is similar in style to the couple’s pizza oven, is currently priced at £150.
Robyn is an online content creator who regularly shares updates on home renovation and interior design tips with her followers. She used the Ronseal Garden Blackbird Matt Multi-surface Garden Metal & wood paint, which is priced at £19 in Homebase, to paint the entire structure. The finished result was stunning and looked professional.
TikTokkers shared their reactions in the comments section, with one expressing their jealousy and admiration for the couple’s outdoor kitchen. Another commenter praised the couple’s work, saying that it looked professional. A third commenter congratulated the couple on a job well done. Others were grateful for the step-by-step instructions, which made it easier for them to follow the DIY project.
The couple’s DIY project is a testament to how creativity and resourcefulness can transform an unused space into a luxurious outdoor kitchen. The project is also a reminder that home renovation need not be expensive. With a little bit of effort and creativity, one can create a beautiful and functional living space without breaking the bank.
