As told to Pretty52, the budding designer explained that the project began with an idea of a green/blue theme.

“I went to B&M to look for paint and bought Dulux Feature Wall in Proud Peacock for £14.99.

I didn’t buy a tester so hoped for the best that it would look as good on the wall as it did on the tin!” she said.

“From there I had no idea what to do next, I just knew I wanted some sparkle.

“I got some wallpaper samples from B&M and B&Q and took them home to look at with the paint.”

“I genuinely couldn’t decide on one I liked the most so I decided to cut a few bits and place them together.

I love collage and mixed media so I was in my creative element. I tried a few different things and the scales just seemed to click!”

The paper samples were cut into a scale shape using a cardboard template and applied using wallpaper paste.  The budding designer then added a little mirror in to break up the pattern.  In total the project cost under £20.

DIY budget home makeovers are hot stuff at the moment with several decor enthusiasts across the internet showing off their design chops for less.
