LET'S be honest – if money were no object, we'd constantly be updating our living space to keep up with interior trends.
But one savvy mum has proven you don't have to spend a small fortune to revamp your home – by transforming her dull bedroom with Lidl & Poundland bargains.
Speaking to Latest Deals, Tracey Perry revealed how she overhauled the master bedroom on the cheap and decorated it using bargain accessories from Poundland and Lidl.
The mum-of-two, from Derbyshire, moved into her new home in March and tested positive for COVID-19 the following month.
After a slow recovery from the illness, Tracey was also made redundant from her job of 10 years and has spent lockdown focussing on the project.
"So far, this year hasn’t been great but I’m always looking on the bright side," she said. "I’m always looking on Pinterest and Instagram for new home ideas and inspiration."
To create her trendy feature wall, Tracey sourced some timber from a local wood yard and used frog tape to roughly space out where she wanted the panels to be.
She explained: "I used 5×1 timber for the horizontal and drilled, screwed and used no nails glue to attach it to the wall. I used 2×1 timber for the vertical and just used no nails for this."
The mum then added an old shelf B&M over the wooden structure and painted it with Frenchic's £17.95 Alfresco Dazzle Me paint before filling in any gaps.
Showing off her high street haul, Tracey added: "The faux rug was £6.99 from Lidl, the pot cactus from Poundland was £1, the cushion cover was from H&M for £19.99, the fake plants were from IKEA for £7, the throw was from IKEA for £25 and the pink vase was from Debenhams for £10 in the sale.
“I got the Kate Moss picture from TK Maxx for £19.99, the zebra trinket dish from Poundland for £1, the Audrey print from eBay for £2.40, the leopard rug from Wayfair for £119, the hanging plant from Matalan for £10 and the pampas from an eBay bundle for £20."
What's more, the mum also scoured Facebook Marketplace for furniture and bagged a pine set of drawers for £100, £20 ladder and £30 pouffe.
Offering advice to other DIY fans, Tracey said: "My tips for others would be to try to keep your business local, enabling smaller businesses to survive Covid-19.
“They are always happy to help too and are far less costly too than the likes of B&Q and Wickes. And it’s not about how much it costs, it’s how you style it."
