Mum uses bargains from charity shops and Amazon to recreate Monica’s kitchen from Friends for a fraction of the cost.

Friends may have ended over 17 years ago (can you believe it?! ), but it remains one of our all-time favorite shows.

It’s consistently ranked as one of the most popular series in the United Kingdom, so it’s no surprise that it continues to have an impact on its fans’ lives, from their sense of humour to their fashion choices.

The series even influenced the interior design of one DIY-obsessed mum’s home.

Desiree Elias, a 34-year-old mother of two from Urbana, Ohio, had always fantasized about having a kitchen like Monica’s on the hit TV show.

When she purchased her own home, she immediately set about transforming the plain kitchen into an amazing colorful kitchen similar to Monica and Chandler’s.

Desiree works in childcare and gathered accessories for the project from Amazon and thrift stores.

Valspar paint and self-adhesive wallpaper were also used.

She enlisted the assistance of friends to finish the project, which cost her only £731.

“Monica’s kitchen from Friends has always been my dream kitchen,” Desiree told LatestDeals.co.uk.

“Because our house dates from the 1800s, we went a little further with our renovation than we anticipated.”

“When we removed the upper cabinets, we discovered a massive hole in the wall behind them, so we went down to the studs and drywalled as well.”

“Before we bought the house, the lower cabinets had also been damaged by water.”

“When we began pulling them out, they began to crack and separate, so we had to purchase new ones.”

“We then decided to replace the flooring while we were at it.”

“We went out and bought unfinished lower cabinets as well as luxury vinyl interlocking flooring.”

“The next step was to insulate in the dark because we were the only house on the block without power due to a bad storm.

“Due to the storm, we had to lay a new floor by flashlight and prime and paint the walls.”

“After that, we installed new lower cabinets and made a plywood countertop as a temporary solution.”

“We then painted all of the lower cabinets rushing stream blue and added knobs and drawer pulls,” says the author.

“We painted the pantry door, as well as two other walls and the iconic Friends purple door.”

“One of the old upper cabinets, as well as a built-in shelf, was painted yellow.

“Then, with some difficulty, we moved the electrical and repair plumbing, feeding the wires through old rock walls in a dark crawl space.”

“The dishwasher and stove were then connected.”

“Following that…”
