Room For Improvement Challenge…

Last week I was kindly asked by Money Supermarket if I would like to take part in a fun home improvement challenge sharing how I can get creative and improve any room of choice in my house on a budget of just £50.00.

With 4 children in the house all the rooms could do with a lick of paint (pesky fingerprints). Which one can I choose to improve? Sticking to the target spend..

After changing my mind a few times I picked out the family bathroom. I chose this room as its fairly plain, and a bit lot boring. I decided this room definitely needed a make over to make it more fun and colourful.


The only drawback to doing the challenge this week? school half term holidays!! Can I get the kids involved or will they be a massive hindrance? Time will tell..

 We spent the first 2 days of the holidays going around the shops and planning the colour scheme.( eating, drinking are NOT part of the budget!!)  I loved the look of Teal and Black accessories and the children agreed too.

To start I took down the silver shelve and painted it outside in black gloss. Then started painting the walls, a couple of coats needed to fully change colour. While waiting for everything to dry, we set about making our own piece of ‘art’.

My youngest 2 were more than happy placing there hands in the paint then transferring to canvas (wash them immedialty please!!) and I tried a little writing to finish it off.

After everything was in place and the black accessories and bath mats were down I went around the shops looking for a few finishing touches. What does every one think?!

I am very pleased just shows what you can do with a little imagination..

What I bought:

Not only have Money Supermarket sent me £50.00 challenge money to spend, everyone who takes part will be entered into a prize draw to win £500 of B&Q vouchers, I can only imagine how cool my house would look with this much money!!

Fingers crossed**

About this post ~ I was sent the challenge money to take part in this competition, I was not paid to write this post and all thoughts on what to do and buy are my own…
