I was recently given the challenge to improve a room in my house with the budget of £50 for the Money Supermarket Challenge. I have been wanting to re-decorate Amelia's nursery for some time now so this was perfect timing. I decided to buy a few bits and pieces to touch up her nursery which will make it easier to convert into a toddler room later on. So lets see how I got on.
As you can see, before hand it was all dark and gloomy. I had the fantastic (not) idea of making it grey and pastel colours which didn't quite go to plan. I had hated it ever since but couldn't really be bothered doing anything to it. I did however like all the bits and pieces that I made such as the butterfly mobile, wall art and pom poms so I thought I would keep them and re-do the room around that theme.
Here is the Nursery after I completed the improvements. I love how it has turned out and it will be much easier to convert into a toddler room. I still need to complete a few other bits but as the challenge was to improve a room in the house I think I've done a pretty good job. Firstly I painted the walls neutral and used white and lilac which has brightened up the nursery tremendously! I decided on white curtains as we will be using a black out blind. I use the left over pom poms from Amelia's 1st birthday party.
