The once-beige and boring bathroom was given a modern new look, with white paint and some tiles. 

She explained that she spray painted the plastic in the bathroom and used “amazing products” from Shein for the caravan’s overhaul.

The mother confirmed that she nabbed her sofa cushion cover from Shein and then used sofa screws which she bought from Amazon to give the sofa’s a fresh new vibe. 

When it came to fixing the damp, the social media user explained: “It wasn't too bad with some new wood and fibreglass. I just YouTube’d it.

“I did rip the wood as it was already falling to bits so was easily removed.

“Just then cut new wood to size and attached with cupboard screws.” 

The TikTok clip, which was posted under the username @born2lomax, has clearly left many stunned, as it has quickly amassed 83,700 views.

Social media users were impressed with the caravan’s makeover and were eager to share this in the comments.

One person said: “Looks brilliant.”

Another added: “This is incredible.”

A third commented: “Wow beautiful, well done.”
