IF YOU’RE stuck for inspiration on how to decorate your kid’s bedroom on limited funds, then look no further.
A talented mum has transformed her son’s space into a gaming-themed paradise for less than £100 using items from Poundland, Primark and eBay.
Lorelei Rose, 29, told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk that she had to think creatively when starting out with the plain room sporting nothing but a lime green lick of paint.
“I came up with the idea when I was messing around with my painter’s tape, and one thing led to anothe,” the DIY fan explained.
“I’m a happy go lucky kind of person and kind of make it up as I go along.”
The single mum-of-three continued: “All I did was put painter’s tape all over the walls then decided on the colour to go with the rest of the colours in the house.
“I used thick black painter’s tape from eBay and I went to Wilko to get the Dulux paint that was half price at the time in the sales.
“The accessories are mainly gaming merchandise as he is a huge Fortnite fan and a massive gamer like his mummy.
“The painting only cost me £18 to do with the simplest and easiest of hacks!
“The wall accessories from various charity shops, Primark and Poundland cost £54.
“I made the big hexagon shelf for £24, the rug from Dunelm was £43 in the sale and I got the curtains from eBay for £15.
“All in all, it cost just over £100 to completely transform my son’s room!”
Her son was delighted with the finished result, and told her: “I love my room so much! Thank you for being the best mummy ever! I love you so much.”
Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, said: “Gaming addicts will love this awesome bedroom transformation, and I’m seriously impressed with how Lorelei stuck to her budget.
