When it comes to a quick and easy bedroom makeover, it’s hard to go past Kmart for lust-worthy homewares at the right price.

But one mum took things a step further by completely changing her daughter’s bedroom using a popular $2 Kmart craft item.

Using one and a half rolls of the Ratten Adhesive Vinyl, the woman transformed her toddler’s tired old bed with a new luxe look and it cost her just $3.50.


Taking to Facebook, the mum shared her clever hack with others on the popular Kmart Home Decor & Hacks Australia page.

“Mini toddler bed makeover. I haven’t styled the bed yet but it took 1.5 rolls of vinyl and 20 minutes. Not bad for $3.50,” she said alongside a picture of her daughter’s newly upcycled bed.

Unsurprisingly, other mums said they were heading to Kmart to pick up the new adhesive and try it out themselves.

“Love the neutral tones. I'm stealing this idea for my little one’s toddler bed once he’s big enough for it,” one mum said.

“That looks like real rattan!” Exclaimed another.

“Wow!! So doing this! Thanks!” Commented a third.

Kmart Vinyl hack goes viral

Meanwhile, other members of the group also said they’d used the Kmart adhesive on their own projects and were really impressed with how well they had turned out.

One woman shared she’d given her drawers a facelift using the rattan vinyl, while another said she used it to make a rattan wall in her home.

Others said they’d updated old furniture within minutes with the budget product. One woman even upcycled an old disposable gloves box.

“It’s hay fever season. An empty disposable gloves box and the rattan vinyl cover, and I now have a tissue-box cover that matches my decor. Simple and cheap. Now, what else can I cover?” She shared.

Kmart fans aren't the only ones jumping on board the adhesive trend. One DIY expert recently completely transformed her outdated bathroom with adhesive tiles from Bunnings.

Using classic black and white adhesive tiles, the woman revamped her outdated brown tiles for just $40.

"DIY helps me express myself and save money," she told Yahoo Lifestyle.

"The black and white tile is a classic look which I think fits my house style perfectly."
