WE all want our homes to look good, without spending a fortune and Kmart has provided an easy way to do that.
In recent years, mainly women have congregated in Facebook groups to share the hacks that made their cheaply purchased Kmart furniture look a bit different.
However, another group of these so-called “hacks” has started an alternative group to parody the worst of them.
“Brenda” is a fictional character the group Kmart Unhacks and Roasts made up and she’s the person responsible for the worst of the worst.
Below are the ten best Brenda hacks posted to the page:
1 Business Brenda
Take a $6 fruit bowl and add some $2 beads, et voila you have this amazing Chandelier.
2 Scarecrow chic
Well, at least she’s recycling?
3 Hope you have the fire brigade on speed dial Brenda
Let’s hope that Kmart ivy is fire retardant.
4 Comic sans font and pimped up cheap glasses
Only the best box wine for these $45 glasses.
5 Where are my sunglasses?
It’s like the Brady Bunch and the Golden Girls started a reno show – one commenter wrote.
6 Keeping it classy in the bathroom
Is any bathroom complete without a poo sign?
7 This is actually a lovely little girl’s room
Wait are they severed animal heads on the wall?
8 Ambient lighting… on a stick
It turns out these are actually solar lights, so for the full effect, Brenda would be left trotting out to the backyard to charge them in the sun every day.
9 Many many memo boards
Brenda would like you to know she’s a funny mum.
10 The pièce de résistance
Are you really a Kmart mum if you don’t have a tattoo proclaiming your brand loyalty?
