A SAVVY shopper has shared how she transformed her living room from cold to cosy for under £20 with bargains from B&M.

Liliana Pitharas wanted to make her house feel more like a home without breaking the bank – so decided to try some budget DIY.

She explained that after recently renovating her pad, she didn't have enough cash left over to splash out on a fancy electric fire.

But the TikToker's attempts to compensate for the blank space where roaring flames usually glow with candles were futile.

After growing tired of the lack of warmth in the living room, Liliana decided to raid her local B&M store to spruce up the space.

She explained she "wanted to do something a little bit decorative" and came up with a trendy but cheap solution.

The money-saving fanatic told her 8,000 followers" "I found the perfect thing."

She picked up two bags of wooden logs costing £7 each, as well as some LED lights that were priced at £6 for a pack of two.

Liliana continued: "The plan is to open up these logs, line them up kind of how I want them to look aesthetically and then run some LEDs through them and we will see how it comes out."

She began to stack the logs on top of one another in her desired position, before dismantling the structure to then put the lights through.

The TikToker asked: "What are your thoughts on the number of logs I've got?

"I'm in two minds about getting more but at the same time, I want it to look like a real fire."

Liliana then showed off her finished DIY creation, which injected a much-needed dose of comfort into the living room.

The LED lights adorably twinkled as they lay between the numerous logs, which she said almost gave the illusion of a "crackly fire."

The bargain lover added: "Voila! This is my new fireplace – and it cost less than £20. I am personally chuffed with it."

She urged her followers to let her know what they thought of her craftsmanship – which Liliana boasted is renter-friendly too.

One commented: "Obsessed! Such cute vibes, my fave."

Another wrote: "Omg! I'm definitely going there today now."

A third simply added: "Love it."
