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.
