A MUM has revealed the incredible home makeover she did for her two daughters after the eldest admitted she wanted more space – and it cost her just £60.
Hannah Nicholls’ two daughters Evelyn, two, and Lacey-Mae, 11, had been sharing a room with bunk beds, but their nine year age gap was proving to be a “nightmare.”

Desperate for a solution the mum-of-three and her partner Ryan swapped rooms with their daughters to give them more space.
And then Hannah, from Penzance, set about “upcycling” the space.
She headed to Facebook marketplace, eBay and B&M Bargains to snap up home décor items on the cheap.
She told LatestDeals.co.uk: “I’m in college training to be a hairdresser so money is tight, so this was all done on a very tight budget of about £60.”

She dismantled the bunk bed in order to create two single beds and then used a box shelf purchased for £10 on Facebook as a room divider.
She continued: “I came up with the idea as there’s only one window so the cubes still let light in, plus this gives them each their own bed and space.”
She gave the room a fresh new look with new bedding, also purchased on Facebook for £10, bed canopies sourced on eBay for £20 and a £10 chandelier from B&M.
Speaking of her daughter’s reaction to the room, Hannah said they were “made up.”
She added: “My oldest, Lacey-Mae starts secondary school on Monday, so she’s happy that her friends can come over without all her sister’s toys all over the place, and my youngest Evelyn is now sleeping in her own bed instead of climbing the bunk beds all night!”
