If you’ve been looking around at your kids’ bedroom and think it needs a lick of paint, take inspiration from this DIY-savvy mum.

Lorelei Rose, a 29-year-old single mum of three, transformed a plain green bedroom into an amazing gaming-themed space.

Lorelei told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: "I am a disabled single mum to three who has a major passion for art, so when the kids want me to do something, I get my creative head on.

“I came up with the idea when I was messing around with my painter's tape, and one thing led to another. I’m a happy go lucky kind of person and kind of make it up as I go along.

"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!”

Lorelei and her son are both absolutely delighted with how the transformation has turned out.

"I felt a massive sense of pride as my son turned around and said 'I love my room so much! Thank you for being the best mummy ever! I love you so much!’” she adds. “It made all my hard work worth it."

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “Gaming addicts will love this awesome bedroom transformation, and I’m seriously impressed with how Lorelei stuck to her budget.
