We recently undertook two challenges and renovated our old nursery room and downstairs toilet which we are really happy with. However now every other part of our house looks like it could do with a revamp too. In particular, we need to update our Roman and Venetian blinds. These blinds were from Hillarys and they have lasted really well, but we had them installed when all our walls were magnolia from when we first moved in. Since then, we have renovated a number of our rooms and in truth, some of the blinds don’t match the decor of the rooms now.
Recently, Mumsnet was looking for 20 MNers to revamp an unloved room in their home. I was one of the lucky ones to have been chosen by B&Q. I was sent a B&Q gift card to spend on a makeover for the unloved room.
The unloved room used to be the nursery room for our children when they were babies. They have long since moved into their own rooms and it has gradually been a dumping ground for toys and books. I wanted to use this fantastic opportunity to turn it into a study room for my children who is in primary school.
