But, her transformation of a small cupboard has been met with a very mixed reception. Keep scrolling to see why…

Whether it’s fitting a whole new kitchen, bathroom, and flooring, or even just a lick of paint – giving a house a makeover is certainly no walk in the park.

Totaling up the cost or materials and/or the decorator themselves isn’t for the faint of heart.

Pinterest and a paintbrush is all you need, right?

This especially the case in cramped, one-bedroom apartments.

Which can pose difficulties of its own – especially if there’s more than one person staying there.

When her partner’s daughter came to stay in her one-bedroom apartment, there was simply nowhere for her to have her own space.

And realized that a small cupboard could be repurposed so the little girl could have her own space.

She shared her handiwork to the popular Facebook group DIY On A Budget UK, saying: “A bit of imagination and creativity. “Small cupboard turned into a sleeping area in my 1 bedroom flat for my partner’s daughter when she stays.”

“The wallpaper I already had, we bought the bed, duvet/duvet set, the pink paint, a lampshade and a colored bulb which she changes to blue so the room looks purple, and then the bits for the shelves.”

The woman estimates it only cost her around $155. “The paint, duvet/duvet set, and lampshade were from The Range. The shelves and bits were from B&M, the bed was from a UK site on eBay.”

The space is obviously tiny, but it means the little girl has somewhere to call her own.

“The door we left on for when she’s not there but it’s open when she is and in there. “She loves the privacy she now has and thinks it’s cozy.”  

Several people pointed out how much of a clever idea it is for people with limited space.

Having your own space is so important.

One person said they wouldn’t even let their dog sleep in there, let alone a child.

Big yikes.

What would it be like to sleep in there during a really hot night?

Either way, it seems the woman has done the best with what she’s got. For another shocking transformation, keep scrolling to see how a guy transformed a creepy attic into a dream walk-in-closet for his wife…
