Savvy mum transforms clapped out caravan into chic studio for just £7


A DIY genius mum-of-two has transformed a vintage caravan into a spectacular arts and crafts space in just nine days.

Carmen Blanch, from New South Wales, Australia decided to create the ultimate “craftvan” in her garden — and the results are incredible.

The mother said she initially had plans to convert the dilapidated caravan into a camper van for her family-of-four so they could go travelling.

But she decided that the caravan was staying put in the garden and would be a home away from home.

During the frenetic nine-day makeover, the mother stripped the interior, ripped out the old cupboards and patched up the holes in the walls.

Ms Blanch said she splashed out just £75 on paint, in which she used to spruce up the exterior.

She said: “I started doing the outside of the van as it was an eyesore in the garden and I can’t stand looking at it especially when I am in the kitchen sink.”

Ms Blanch — who documents her incredible projects at The DIY Junkie — said she managed to save a fortune.

This was because she already owned most of her furniture pieces and décor.
