Mum’s Kmart kitchen hack cops online backlash

What do you think of this 'hack'?

Kmart Facebook groups are a growing community for shoppers to share their DIY tips and budget transformations, but one mum's post has recently been slammed for what has only been described as a 'hot mess'.

Sharing in a Kmart group, photos of the woman's efforts have received over 800 comments blasting the shopper for her DIY efforts using marble contact paper to cover the inside of her pantry and pantry items.

Commonly used for books and shelves, the woman has used the contact paper to cover her round jars of staple items like Milo, Nesquik and Coffee - before using a permament marker to hand write the contents. 

While some jars are more smooth than others, 'projects' like the coffee jar with the narrow neck has copped some bunching which she's tried to hide by tying a flowery bow around it.

Kmart shoppers have hardly been blown away by the 'hack', with many not withholding their feedback:

"I hate everything about this. Everything," one shopper commented.

"Who would contact a Milo & Nesquik tin?" another questioned. 

"Oh wow! I don't even know WHAT is going on here... Why can’t people just use a cupboard?" a third joked. 

And another Kmart shopper had one simple line when she said: "The closer you look the more you laugh."

Since releasing modern designs, Kmart's adhesive contact paper has been an affordable way to makeover bedside tables, small cupboards and other flat surfaces by only costing $3 per roll.

While the description on Kmart's website encourages shoppers to use it for DIY projects, we're not sure wrapping pantry items will go down so well!
