AFTER: Danielle transformed a previously gray and drab room into a calming and relaxing space, all on a tight budget

A woman has revealed how she saved money while transforming her drab bedroom into a space described as a “calm masterpiece”.

Danielle Love, 31, from Preesall in Lancashire, who works as a tour coordinator, did her research to find the best deals when it came to shopping for supplies to save money on her bedroom renovation.

She also stuck to the budget, which came to around £300, doing the work herself, rather than shelling out professionals to do the work.

According to Danielle, she found the inspiration for her new bedroom on Pinterest, explaining that she went with a green and gray color palette.

Speaking to money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk, the mother-of-two said: “I’ve wanted a green room for quite some time, but had always put off making my own room because there were always other places in the house that needed work. .

Danielle Love, a mother of two (pictured), said she wanted to create a “relaxing vibe” when she remodeled the room.

“I had been looking on Pinterest and had seen a few different items that I liked. I leaned towards green and have a light gray bed.

‘That was the color scheme I ended up working with, and I based the project on this palette. I wanted to create a relaxing environment.’

According to the do-it-yourselfer, her biggest expense was the large mural that covered the wall behind her bed, which cost £100, a big chunk of the total budget.

He explained: “The mural [from Bimago] It’s called Foggy Nature and it uses the same shades of green that I wanted to apply to my walls and decoration.

Flowers and leaves cascade down the wall creating a lovely relaxing atmosphere. You can get the mural in many different sizes, so those on tighter budgets who want a smaller mural can pay as little as £20.’

Another cost was paint, which was mixed with B&Q’s own range, in a shade called Sea Turtle.

“I got three pots for the price of two thanks to a special offer, so the final price was around £26 for a five-litre pot.”

When it came to accessories, she bought bedding from Dunelm for £40 and cushions from B&M, which were £10 each.

Meanwhile, her curtains were £20 at Online Home Shop and the bedside cabinets were £37.50 each at Amazon.

When it came time to put the room together, Danielle said, ‘The most time consuming part of the project was the green paint.

‘It took about three coats, but I’ve gotten a lot of compliments from people when they see the finished product.

“The mural was quite simple since it was numbered. It almost got backwards, but we finally got it!

Before Danielle tackled the space, the walls were a pale gray. She decided she wanted to go with a gray and green color palette.

‘My mom’s partner completed this step because they didn’t want to mess it up. I think that was the only challenge we faced, really: which way does the paper go up!

‘After that, it was just the finishing touches, which is the fun part.

‘I am very happy with the outcome of the project. I’m just waiting on some wall art now to finish it off.

‘If I had to do this project over again, I would have laid the floor. However, I can always change that at a later date.

Details: Danielle invested in handpicked pieces including handpicked bedding and cushions to create a ‘calming’ color palette and ambience.

It would have cost over £100 to hire a painter to do the job professionally. I love DIY so paying someone seems silly to me.

“Since I did this project, many people have asked me where I got the mural from and have complimented me on the shade of green, so maybe other bedrooms like this will pop up in the future!”

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, said: ‘Danielle has shown that with a little creativity and hard work, it is possible to transform a plain room into a quiet masterpiece on a limited budget.

‘By finding cheap supplies online and doing the job herself, she has saved over £100 on professional painters’ costs.

“Your bedroom is now an oasis of calm that reflects your personal style and taste. We hope his project will inspire others to take up their own DIY projects and save money in the process.’
