Mum-of-two Joanna Kerr proudly showed off the stunning room makeover, which features bargain buys from Ikea, Argos, eBay and B&Q.

Joanna took to the Facebook group DIY On A Budget Official to share some snaps of the new room, which now looks like a peaceful sanctuary for her lucky little girl.

Alongside the handful of pictures Joanna wrote: "My 5-year-old daughter, who had been shielding, asked me for a rainbow bedroom.

"So as a treat before I returned back to work, once we had a little bit of freedom, I tried my best to make her little dream a reality.

"I made the most of anything she had and made a few little bits myself with love."

After sharing the original post to show others how far a bit of hard work and creativity can go, Joanna was amazed by the positive reception she received online.
