Bright n funky bedroom makeover (for under £50!)

Hello my lovelies, the sun is SHINING & I feel on top of the world today, full of energy and creativity so I thought I'd share with you a little makeover I started yesterday and finished this morning.

Ok, some of you will know and agree with my enduring love of neon, coral and grey…well for this makeover I have combined them and wham bam with spending very little at all have completely transformed my bedroom.

I am entirely forgetful and rubbish at taking 'before' photos but I've got a whole host of afters so here goes…

I had two old cream bedsides that needed funking up... I bought Annie Sloan Barcelona Orange & mixed in a little Emperors Silk...

…and made a luscious deep coral & got paintbrush happy

The wall behind the bed was white & bland...

…so I bought a roll of IKEA BrĂ¥kig wallpaper & some awesome neon memo clips & push pins...

…and hammered some round wire nails onto the wall..

…& hung up the wallpaper with the memo clips. Et voila!


The bonus is when I get bored I can really easily change the wallpaper with minimal time / effort / damage

My trademark colour co-ordinated books!  
Just enough pops of colour

Oh and I pinned a piece of 'art' wallpaper up with some neon orange push pins hee hee

I absolutely love it and for less than £50 the room looks and feels fresh and funky. The geometric patterns on the wallpaper and cushions work well with the curves of my retro bed and I am looking forward to snuggling in bed to appreciate it tonight *smile*

Have you been doing anything creative lately?

Now I am going to go and enjoy some sunshine, shh don't tell anyone ;)

Until the next time x
