Mum reveals amazing jungle nursery she created on a budget – with bargains from B&M and eBayApril 4, 2021
A MUM has shown off the incredible jungle nursery she created for a friend, with bargains from B&M and eBay.
Stacey Jones, a mum-of-three, worked as a visual merchandiser for Debenhams for seven years – before being made redundant recently.
She told Fabulous: "Everyone loves my sons dinosaur bedroom that I designed so my friend asked me to do this for her.
"I’m thinking of trying to pursue decorating children’s spaces more now I’m unemployed as I love how creative you can get to make the room unique."
Stacey added of the cost: "For the accessories it was roughly around £300 but a few of the pieces where handmade by me.
"So that includes the cost of the materials to make those also, like the lion and zebra basket plus the lion mirror."
Stacey also revealed where she got everything – including bedding from B&M, which she resized for a cot, keeping the excess material for a cushion cover.
She also bought a rug and curtains from Argos; the prints, wall transfers and artificial leaves on eBay; and a toy snake and chair from Ikea.
Stacey then handmade the lion and zebra basket, and the stylish raffia mirror.
She posted the impressive before and after pics on Facebook group DIY on a Budget – where it racked up just shy of 1,000 likes.
Commenting on the post, one woman said: "This is the loveliest nursery I’ve ever seen. So nice for a girl or a boy. I love it well done!!"
While a second said: "Most adorable nursery I have ever seen! Bravo!"
Others said: "Very very nice" and "Amazing, such talent".
Another woman added: "I wish I had this type of imagination! I loved my baby's nursery but wish I could do something like this! Well done mama!!"
And one said: "Wha a beautiful room for a baby, so bright, colourful and full of beautiful things, fantastic job, well done am sure there's gunna be gurgles, n giggles from one happy little angel".
