Mum transforms daughters’ fussy floral room by giving it a £4 Dalmatian makeover – and there’s loads more storage too

A DOTING mum has given her daughters' bedroom an enviable Dalmatian makeover after they begged her for the spotty design.

Arabella, seven, and Allie, five, share the small bedroom and slept in wooden bunk beds, but had no room to store their toys or even play.

So mum-of-two Jessica Ingram got to work on stripping the fussy floral wallpaper and instead hand painted an array of black spots.

And although the popular design took "over four hours" to complete, Jessica says both her and the youngsters are extremely happy with the result.

Aside from the new polka-dot feature wall, the bedroom is complete with a unique elevated cabin bed which allows both the girls to have their own space.

In doing so, they created extra space underneath the beds for toys and extra storage.

The crafty mum also set the girls up with new furniture from Ikea and attached stunning hanging lights to brighten up the space.

Jessica shared the new look in theDIY On A Budget Facebook group which has racked up over a thousand likes and comments.

Along with before and after photos, she wrote: "My girls nagged for a dalmation bedroom, they share a room and had no storage for toys, so I painted the wall using £4 acrylic paint and small brush myself and added the beds from amazon and the rest underneath from IKEA.

"Cheap and cheerful, not perfect but my girls love it ❤ swipe for finished room."

Speaking to Fabulous, Jessica revealed: "We bought existing beds in two different sizes to fit, both from amazon and a company called strictly beds and bunks.

"I hand painted the spots myself which took just over 4 hours and my husband built the beds, id say the painting was the most difficult due to the time it took, but as long as my girls are happy, im happy."

In her Facebook post she also revealed that she ordered the acrylic paint from Amazon and competed the look with the girls' bedding from Argos.

But it seems the kids weren't the only ones who loved the new room as many DIY fans gushed about the creative design.

"Love the bunk beds," one person wrote.

And another shared: "What a transformation looks brill."

"Absolutely adorable" another said, while a fourth wrote: "Amazing! Truly a special place for your girls."
