She often uses the account to post her latest car boot hauls, as well as helpful DIY tips.

Her videos are very popular with social media users and she has amassed over 25,000 followers on the video sharing site.

“Come upgrade my bathroom with me for only £3”, she said.

The car boot enthusiast explained that she had picked up a “brand new” sealed tin of paint from the car boot for just £3.

Johnstone’s Trade Eggshell paint (the kind she picked up) sells for around £30 in the shop, so the TikToker nabbed an absolute bargain.

Before she began painting, the DIY pro filled in any cracks and holes in the walls and sanded them down.

She then popped some old bed sheets down to mask protect the floor and took wet sponge to the walls.

“It’s not a myth, you do need to wash the walls first”, she said.

The TikToker then cracked open the tin of paint, which was a mint green colour, and set to work painting over the pink and blue geometric pattern that had previously been on the wall.

“A good tip, always have an old rag or some kind of towel with you, so if you make a mistake you can wipe it off”, she said.

The bargain hunter also recommended removing any sealant “so you get a nice paint finish” and then resealing again afterwards.

“Don’t be stingy with the paint as that will take forever”, she advised.

After the decorating was done, @carbootisfull showed viewers the finished project.

The bathroom looks unrecognisable and the green gives the room a classy feel.

“It’s much better than the old colour,” she said.

“I really like this green colour in the bathroom.

“It’s incredible how much a lick of paint can change a room”.
