Man Says His 2-Bedroom Apartment Looks Like Literal Palace, Then Shows Inside To Cameras

Adrian Reeman is a DIY guru! He has spent the last 30 years turning his Southhampton council flat into a replica of the Palace of Versailles. Over time he has transformed the walls, ceiling, fireplace, and cupboards in every room. His ninth floor apartment now has a palatial feel with an interior fit for a king.

Despite devoting hundreds of hours to working his magic on wardrobes, chairs, chests, and tables, Adrian has spent very little money, because he finds or makes everything himself!

Some of the tables, for example, are made from discarded wooden salad bowls, while the detailing on the fireplace was created using the brass prongs from plugs.

Adrian is currently creating a toilet with a faux marble finish to serve as the perfect throne.

What’s even more incredible is that Adrian has no professional design experience, nor has he ever visited Versailles! To say he figured this out on his own is the understatement of the year.

Sadly, I am not a DIY person. I love the idea of making stuff more than I actually enjoy making it. However, I am in awe of people like Adrian who can take a little bit of nothing and make it into a whole lot of something.

Are you as amazed by Adrian’s work as I am?
