“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.”
