I transformed my son’s boring bedroom for under £100 – it’s even got special storage for his favourite footballs | The Sun
A WOMAN has revealed how she managed to transform her son’s bedroom for under £100.
Turning a house into a home is no easy feat and there’s nothing that says ‘this is temporary’ than white walls and zero decorations.
Seeing the blank canvas she had to work with in her son’s bedroom, Sera took it upon herself to change the space for the better.
The TikTok user first shared an image of the state of the room before she got to work on it.
The room had a simple bed against the far wall by the window, a shelving unit and a mounted TV.
A cream carpet, white walls and little else in there meant any change would turn it into a more welcoming space.

The first thing she decided to do was paint the window frame, changing the look from a boring brown to white.
She then went on the B&Q website and bought herself a 2.5L GoodHome Walls & ceiling Vence Silk Emulsion paint for £16.
“I used B&Q paint in Venice but added some white to lighten it,” she told viewers.
On one half of her son’s wall, she painted “pure brilliant white”, while she coated the bottom half in the Venice paint she bought.

Following this, she purchased some Cheshire Mouldings Smooth Square edge Pine Stripwood, which sells for £3.47 on the online B&Q store.
After painting each of these thin strips in the same blue-grey paint, she explained: “Glue the top strip on with no more nails,” as she panned the camera around the room to show the outline.
She then bought £3.47 dowels from the store to use as panelling.
“Glue the dowel on with no more nails. We cut ours to 130cm long & they’re 20cm apart,” [sic] she wrote over a clip of herself doing the work.
Sera, otherwise known as @wisteria.house_ on the social media platform, then painted each dowel and the walls behind them.
She added finishing touches to the room, including wall stands for his favourite footballs right above his bed.
The mum hung a lightning bolt sign on one wall and put a fake on the shelving unit to bring some life into the room, too.
“Boy’s room transformation for under £100,” she wrote in the caption.
Viewers were left impressed with her budget room makeover and took to the comments to share their thoughts.
“Is there no radiator in his room? Looks incredible x,” one person wrote, to which she replied: “Aww thanks, yes it’s as you come in the door. You can see it in painting but & end video x”. [sic]
