UK mum transforms garden and builds stunning outdoor kitchen for just £60

A savvy mum has shared how she transformed her garden and built a stunning outdoor kitchen - for just £60.

Belle Rogers, 41, upcycled old materials left over from renovating her detached five-bed barn conversation home to create the incredible outdoor space on a shoestring budget.

She used extra tiles from her bathroom to make the worktops and old pallets were turned into cupboards.

Leftover patio slabs were used for the flooring area, and she scoured Facebook Marketplace for kitchen accessories for the finishing touches.

The only thing she forked out on where the cast-iron handles and hanging rails - setting her back around £60.

Creative Belle is already thinking about her next project and plans to turn an old greenhouse into an outdoor bar at her Georgian farmhouse, in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

Belle, a creative partner at a design company, said: “I love giving things a new lease of life.

“I don’t throw away anything - our garage is full of leftover material from previous projects.

“I’ve designed everything for the house, inside and out, I love getting stuck into a project.

"I'm really pleased with how the kitchen turned out."

Belle and her husband David Rogers, 50, purchased the five-bed Georgian farmhouse cottage with barn conversation in 2014 and got work renovating it when they moved in there in January 2015.

After working hard on the interiors, Belle felt as though the garden had been overlooked.

The back garden was turned into a vegetable patch where the family grow their own produce.

For the side garden, Belle drew-up plans and got to work giving the outdoor space a makeover.
