Mum Shows Off Incredible £1 Geometric Wall
- Emma Scarsbrook, 28, spent just a pound on her amazing design
- She used paints she already had and £1 Poundland masking tape
- The result looks designer and it was simple and cheap to create
Home renovations can be one of the most expensive undertakings you’ll ever pay for, but one savvy mum managed to create an incredible geometric wall feature for just £1.
Emma Scarsbrook, 28, from Gosport, decided to transform the wall in her bedroom but didn’t want to spend a fortune on the task.
She spent £1 on masking tape from Poundland and decided to use spare paint she had at home from The Range to create the triangle effect in a series of muted purples, blues and browns.
Emma, who is mum to a little girl aged two, Millie, says she spotted the trend for geometric walls on DIY Facebook groups.
She told LatestDeals.co.uk: “I lined the wall with masking tape from Poundland and used spare paint I had from decorating other rooms in my house. It took longer to mark it all out than it did to paint! I painted between the lines and waited overnight before removing the tape. Because I had the paint spare, it only cost me £1 to do!”
Emma is a dab hand with home renovations already, having decorated her daughter’s room using masking tape, paint and stickers from Amazon to create a beautiful half pink polka dot wall on a budget. She says: “For Millie’s room, I used the tape from the top corner, painted the pink first, then removed the tape, and then relined it to paint the grey. Once it was dry, I added the stickers. The paint was around £10 for each colour as the rest of her room is pink and grey too. The stickers cost £7.99 but I got 270 of them.”
Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “Emma managed to create a designer look on a budget by cleverly using masking tape and paints. The great thing about this design is how easy it is to replicate at home. Keep things wallet-friendly by asking for free paint samples, buying cheap masking tape and only doing one main feature wall rather than decorating the whole room in a geometric print.”
