At 22, Anya Clements and her partner acquired their residence, only to discover the high costs associated with its decoration.

They estimate a shortfall of GH₵522.7K to complete the project from the ground up.

"We wanted to get this whole house renovation done in under a year, and in doing so, we started off with the easy options."

She said they started with the bedrooms to give them a modern refresh.

They opted for green panelling and a tasteful neutral carpet, and Anya explained,

"Bedrooms are the cheapest and easiest things to decorate, so we did those first and then moved on to the harder things."

Despite keeping to a strict budget, the pair managed to keep costs low by doing most of the handy work themselves.

However, they have now asked strangers on TikTok for a little extra cash as they still have the downstairs toilet, garden, and outside of the house to renovate.

They also need extra money to revamp many parts of their new house.

However, the young homeowner has had an idea.

"So you're probably wondering how I'm going to get GH₵522.7K in four months," the young homeowner said.

TikTokers react to woman asking for renovation funding

The response to her video has been mixed. Some claimed they were shocked by her idea.

One TikToker commented:

"TikTok begging now, you go queen."
"Or you could just get a loan," another said.

Others told her to keep the garden how it was.

One person said:

"No, the garden is perfect—save the money and leave it as it is."
