Amy Stanyer-Jones wanted to install a black-framed screen instead – but couldn’t find any options within her budget.

Instead, the graphic designer from Prestatyn in North Wales decided to create the same look by herself.

The 24-year-old bought a roll of black electrical tape for £1, a £1.50 paintbrush and a pot of £6 metal paint in black – bringing her total spend to just under £9.

She got to work by sticking the electrical tape onto the glass in horizontal and vertical lines – forming a grid effect.

That looks absolutely amazing. Crazy what paint can do

Next, Amy painted the silver edges with black paint, so they blended in with the black lines.

She shared the process on Facebook, leaving people impressed with her handiwork.

One commented: “That looks absolutely amazing. Crazy what paint can do.”

Another shared: “Little oasis. It’s gorgeous.”

Speaking to Jam Press, Amy said: “I’m very happy with the results, it’s been two months since upcycling my shower screen and it still looks like new.

“I have lots of materials left over too which is a bonus if it ever needs touching up.”

For those considering giving it a try, she said: “Make sure you measure the tape for accuracy and use the correct paint suitable for metal and water.”
