A CLEVER mum has revealed how she built her son a tiny gaming room for just £50 with B&M bargains – so he finally has his own space.
Posting on Facebook’s DIY on a Budget UK group, she explained how her nine-year-old shares a bedroom with his brother, four, and was desperate for his own area.

So his parents decided to create him a little snug, building the desk and flooring from scratch.
She explained: “Decided to give my son a room of his own! He is 9 and shares a room with his little 4yr old brother so has no peace or space!
“We built the desk and everything else didn’t cost more than £50!! My son is super pleased he has some space”.
She later revealed how she DIY-ed the floor after a trip to B&M. She said: “B&m! Self adhesive floor planks £10 for 7 planks! They are not great but fine for a small space!”

The thrifty Brit also gave her gaming-mad son his own TV, Xbox and bean bag chair.
She added of the chair: “Our neighbour gave us it! It was a PlayStation one and it had a few holes in it! I just sewed them up to get him to his birthday in April when I’ll get him a gaming chair”.
Commenting on the post, her fellow mums said: “I think you done a grand job !! My boy would love this !! Top Mum !!” and “He’s got one talented mumma”.

Others gushed: “Lovely job. Well done, you should be very proud of that” and “Looks brilliant! What a great use of the space. Win win for everyone”.
But some warned the mum to make sure her lad keeps the door open, otherwise the room could overheat.
