With the help of her partner, the couple was able to transform the space by simply painting the brick wall white.
The couple opted for the bagging brick method, which involves the application of a mixture before painting. The method protects the brickwork and also ensures the texture of the brick is not hidden.

To complete the look, they added a timber shelf underneath the window and adorned it with indoor plants and trinkets.
"Our first try at bagging brick. We learned A LOT about getting the right render consistency, but we got there and are so happy with how it turned out," she wrote.
After a few coats of white paint, the makeover looks well worth the trouble.
People took to the comments to share their admiration of the simple DIY project.
‘Looks amazing!! You guys are so clever,” one wrote.
“Wow, what an improvement! Love the texture of it,” said another.
