Mum Creates Incredible '101 Dalmatians' Themed Room For Just £2

Mum Creates Incredible '101 Dalmatians' Themed Room For Just £2

A woman who wanted to transform her kids' bedroom has revealed she managed to give the space a 101 Dalmatians themed makeover for just £2 - and it only took two hours.

Victoria Robinson, 33, who works at Tesco in Hertfordshire, explained her daughters are "dog mad" and love the Disney film.

The mum - who revealed her two girls, three-year-old Jessica and six-year-old Amber are *obsessed *with 101 Dalmatians - explained how she decided to make over their room as a surprise.

To create the theme, Victoria simply designed a Dalmatian print on the bedroom wall using paint from Homebase.

While she already had a pot of white paint, which she used for the base coats, Victoria purchased two £1 tester pots from Homebase and started on the black spotty print once the base had dried.

Using the paint, she drew different shaped dots to create the doggy pattern.

"My children love 101 Dalmatians, so I thought I'd do a focus wall on it," she told Latestdeals.co.uk.

"The inspiration behind this wall is my daughter Jessica as she's dog mad and loves 101 Dalmatians.

"I thought I'd surprise them both by doing this. All I needed was my kids' paintbrush and two pots of £1 black paint tester paints from Homebase.

"I just drew different shapes of circles to create this focus wall and I'm quite proud of the result!"

The makeover only took her two hours in total and cost just £2.

"It took me around two hours in total," she explained.

"I love doing things like this so I have a lot of patience. I was quite dubious when the first lot of spots went on but I'm glad I finished as my girls love it.

"I'm very pleased with the outcome - it's not every day you walk into a room and have Dalmatian spots everywhere!"

This is so easy to recreate - are we too old to have this in our bedrooms? Asking for a friend...
