WITH the cost of goods still soaring you might be turning to DIY to update your home.
It seems many of us are pushing the boundaries when it comes to creativity with DIY.
One woman has revealed how she came up with a cheap alternative for installing a bathroom sink.
DIY fan Trina knew she needed a new sink but didn’t want to fork out to buy one.
In a TikTok video online she said: “These prices have gotten out of control, it’s time to get creative.”
Instead of buying a new sink Trina adapted a large porcelain serving bowl.

Then she bought a gold faucet and drain from Amazon.
Trina hooked the bowl up to the bathroom drain and attached the bowl to her bathroom counter with caulk as recommended by her plumber.

She said: “We did it last year & it’s still perfect!”
