Jaws Drop Over Stunning DIY Home Renovation: ‘Looks Incredible’

A woman from the United Kingdom has shocked the internet after sharing her incredible home renovation in a clip that has gone viral on social media.

A video shared on TikTok in October by the new homeowner, under the username Amywright.pt, the poster shows pictures of her home before the renovation—old mauve plush carpeting, stained wallpaper, and absolutely trashed yard— alongside pictures of the home after the renovation, where it looks unrecognizable.

The poster told Newsweek she got the keys to the house, which she bought for about £235,000 ($296,970), back in October 2022, and it only took her three months to renovate it, giving it a clean and modern look.

Moreover, she didn’t even need an interior designer to come up with ideas for the home and furniture, “I did all the interior design myself,” she said.

Buying a house in America is way less affordable. According to Forbes, the U.S. median home price was around $412,000 in September 2023. A 2 percent price increase over last year, even though there were more than 300,000 fewer homes on the market.

“Unfortunately, 30-year mortgage rates also increased from 6.09% to 7.63% over the same period, making monthly payments significantly more expensive for anyone looking to buy a home. Higher rates are contributing to the lack of listings as well: People with low rates don’t want to move and get a new mortgage with a higher rate,” the website says.

The video quickly went viral on social media, getting viewers from across TikTok. It has so far received over 3.8 million views and 222,400 likes on the platform.

One user, Shaaz, commented: “Can you imagine in 30 years time people will be showing this modern house as the “before” part of the next renovation…” And Devil-In-Disguise said: “In 20 years’ time we will amazed that people used to own their own homes lol.”

AngieH said: “Wow absolutely stunning home, looks fantastic great job and enjoy your new home.” And moogambo added: “Sorry but I’m copying some of these ideas, lovely renovation.”

It should be noted, however, that renovations may not be for the faint of heart.
