A young woman has jazzed up her bedroom by adding DIY faux-panelling to the back wall.
And, while it makes the room look expensive, it doesn’t cost much to do.
Quite frankly, we’re a little bit obsessed with the effect.
Rebecca Bonney, from Manchester, bought an MDF 2.4m MDF board from B&Q and had the staff cut the it into 7.5cm strips.
From there, it was just a case of assembly and painting.
Posting in a popular DIY Facebook group, Rebecca said: “Booked this week off to do my garden but the weather’s bad, so decided to panel my bedroom wall instead! “Who needs a man?”
The series of snaps she uploaded showed her DIY process.
Rebecca began by sticking a frame of MDF around the wall.
Then she glued the vertical strips in place with No More Nails adhesive.
Next, she added the shorter horizontal slats into the gaps to create a chic crossed panel effect.
Finally Rebecca painted the lot with paint colour matched to Farrow & Ball’s Sulking Room Pink.
The pink really sets off the mauve tones in Rebecca’s room.
A tin of the Farrow & Ball paint will set you back around £27, or you could get the colour mixed at B&Q like Rebecca did.
She said: “it looks slightly darker than the original, but I like it.”
Rebecca spent £20 on the MDF which was cut for free.
That makes the total cost of this makeover just £37.50. Incredible result!
The post racked up huge numbers online – more than 2,200 people liked the post and 390 commented on it.
One person said: “Beautiful! Love the colour of the wall!”
“Colours are lovely – well done,” added a second.
A third wrote: “Actually obsessed with this!”
Hundreds of others called the DIY job “stunning” and “amazing”.
We have to agree – it’s an impressive re-design.
