Love Island Australia’s Grant Crapp and his girlfriend Lucy Cartwright bought their first home together in Malua Bay, New South Wales, back in February.

And after snapping up the three bedroom cabin up for $380,000, the electrician has been renovating it ever since.

On Monday, the 23-year-old updated fans on Instagram of his progress, while showcasing several of the finished interiors.

Grant has completely transformed the property, which is located two hours from his former home of Canberra, since becoming a first time homeowner.

The star stripped the kitchen of its former fixtures, swapping the orange design for a an all white look and vibrant yellow countertops and tiles.

Gone are the olive green walls too, with a fresh coat of white paint too.

He has created a more intimate lounge space, away from the vast open plan layout that the house previously had.

Centered around the original slow combustion wood burner, Grant has set up a bold blue corner sofa with additional two seater couch.

‘I am a perfectionist,’ joked Grant, while highlighting the his wall-mounted TV which features no visible wires or cables.

Mocking the original walls and woodwork in the room, Grant added: ‘What the F is with “mission brown” skirting [boards]?’

Grant described the original look as ‘very 80s and old fashioned’ with ‘weird colours’ before having the room professionally re-designed.

With everything fitted new, the reality star went on to reveal that the entire room was made-over for just $1,500.

Grant claims the modest price covered $900 in labour for the plumbing and tiling, and $600 for the materials that were ‘mostly bought from Bunnings’.

Each of the three bedrooms have been freshened up too.

With a consistent monochrome design and minor splashes of colour in the styling, Grant’s colour scheme has given the house a whole new lease of life.

‘Look how simple and clean this looks,’ captioned Grant on one bedroom picture.

Grant purchased the property with girlfriend Lucy, after the pair rekindled their romance shortly after he won Love Island Australia in June, 2018.

Despite leaving the reality show in a relationship with Tayla Damir, it was quickly revealed that he had a ‘secret girlfriend’ back in Canberra.

Grant and Tayla then split up, with the star getting back together with Lucy in the weeks that followed.

Gushing over their new home, Lucy wrote to Instagram: ‘I’ve been saving since I was 14 years old to own my own home.’
