A woman has gone to extreme lengths to take revenge on her cheating husband by turning his beloved record collection into a new kitchen floor.
As 47-year-old Sonia Barton from Derbyshire, UK, revealed, she decided to get revenge on her now-ex-husband, Jason, after allegedly catching him cheating on her.
And so, the mum-of-three used Jason’s favorite vinyl records, including those from popular bands such as Paper Lace and Dire Straits, to make a shiny, one-of-a-kind kitchen floor.
“It amuses me, it makes me laugh every time I walk in the kitchen and see them,” Sonia said.
“Each section is bordered by small tiles because I didn’t want to do it all in one go so I could still use my kitchen.”
Besides using vinyl records for her expensive kitchen renovation project, the woman also collected some 5,000 flower buttons that are spread over other areas of the floor.
“I love DIY and I love color so it just evolved. I originally wanted to do records on the floor when I was married but my husband at the time didn’t like the idea so as soon as we split I decided to do it,” the mother-of-three said.
“It’s been a labor of love for me. I started it over a year ago and spent evenings and weekends working on it.”
As Sonia added, she started working on her kitchen renovation project back in 2018, whereas she not only designed the floor but also created all the counter doors and drawers.
“I made all the doors and drawers. I love vibrant colors so decided to paint the doors. I spent ages looking at tiles and couldn’t find any that I liked so I brought some plain white tiles. I then decoupaged them and then put resin on them,” she said.
“The worktops were an eBay bargain which I was able to install with help from a friend. For the floor, I bought the buttons and then added coins and records. I glued them on the floor and put a resin over them.
“The buttons were the hardest part, they took hours and hours and hours and there are thousands of tiny flower buttons on the floor, all of them are different.”
