I’m so obsessed with decorating I went to clean the loo & spray-painted the bathroom

A MUM who turned her rental property into a multicoloured home on the cheap keeps adding to it – even ripping down a wall while ‘cleaning’ the loo.

Natasha McBrinn, in her 30s, posts on Instagram and TikTok about her family home in Ormskirk, West Lancs.

The blogger did her downstairs bathroom, for just £50 and in 72 hours.

But now, while cleaning it, she was inspired to improve it – so TORE DOWN a wall over two hours.

She revealed it in an Instagram post.

She said: “On Sunday I went in my bathroom to clean, I came out two hours later after removing a whole gallery wall ready to rip down the paper (yep those monochrome stripes are going!), spray painting the floor and sink / taps and doing this, YES THIS, to the toilet.

Anyone else have problems like this?! Or is it just me?! (I think I know the answer to this already) Let’s face it the bog was too white anyway wasn’t it.

“I promise I’ll replace it IF and when I move out but for now, ta-da ✨ enjoy my obscene bog.”

People reactions to Natasha’s revelation were mixed – but largely positive.

“Hehe! I’m more likely to go in to clean and 5 seconds later come out without cleaning!” said one woman.

“You give me heart palpitations I swear haha! I get nervous of your landlord deciding to sell the house like mine did,” said another.

Dubbing herself the “Queen of Cluttercore”, a maximalist decoration technique which “embraces organised chaos and clutter”, Natasha will have to strip much of her property when she moves out.

As such, she posts “rental-friendly” transformation vids, showing others how to use vinyl and paint to transform a space without enraging your landlord.

Speaking about her home, she told bathroom specialists Drench: “I started with knowing I wanted a black ceiling that spanned down onto the wall, but as the room is tiny I knew the whole space couldn’t be dark.

“I collaborated with a vinyl company to design the paint drip vinyl. I used the vinyl on the back wall by the window and spray painted the pipe.

“The third wall I left white to expand the space. And the final wall, with the mirrors, I used tester pots and just went with what came out of my mind.

“I put vinyl on the floor but instead of laying it in one clear sheet, I cut it into strips to lay it in different directions.

“I took inspiration from both the vinyl on the wall background and from the Beetlejuice film.”

She then used duct tape and masking tape to create the colourful stripes coming down the back wall.

Explaining the process, she said: “As I have a decent sized Instagram account, I was gifted a lot of the materials which included the black paint, vinyl for the back wall, vinyl for the cupboards and the prints.

“I also used leftover tester pots, tapes and spray paint I had from other projects.

“I only paid for the vinyl on the floor which I got on sale for £32, as well as the gold vinyl around to door frame (£3 from Poundland!) and the paintbrushes.

“The neon lights and polaroll were bought for me as a birthday gift. I spent about £6 on frames for the prints.

“That was it – all the accessories were sourced from around my house and the mirrors were part of the previous design in the room.

“The splashback vinyl was also leftover from my kitchen.”
