To help update my daughter’s bedroom on the cheap we gave it a new coat of paint, repainted her wooden furniture in white and updated her soft furnishings and pictures. For the pictures we hung her own masterpieces in existing frames and found a new doona cover on sale. I was able to up cycle her old doona cover into cushion covers and also put it across her pin board. It looks amazing and she loves it!

  • Well done mum! I just changed my daughter’s room around while she was visiting her dad and she loved it. I love surprising them with things like that, and they like it when I clean their room haha.
