The unloved bedroom was given a new lease of life when an interiors company asked if the couple wanted to test out a revolutionary new product – British Gypsum’s Thistle Magnetic Plaster. ‘I was spurred on to start a full makeover,’ says one of the pair. ‘In the end I decided to use the magnetic plaster on the wall behind our bed so that I can change pictures regularly without having to drill and fill in holes.’ Before that, though, they had to decide how they wanted the rest of the room to look.
Stack it up, use a crate as a quirky box shelf to display personal objects and trinkets. Wooden crates don’t have to be expensive and even less than perfect ones are easy to make pretty and practical. You don’t even need to fix to a wall, just stack a couple up for the ultimate budget storage unit. If you like, give yours an instant update with a set of stencils, a tester pot of paint, a stencil brush and a steady hand.
After this couple moved into their two-bedroom Georgian flat in Bristol, along with their six-year-old son, they realised that their bedroom was gradually becoming a dumping ground for all kinds of clutter. They put it down to the space being the biggest room in the flat, but knew they needed to resolve the way the space was designed. ‘Nothing really matched as we were using old pieces of furniture. So basically the room just wasn’t working for us and desperately needed a complete overhaul,’ they say.
