Using a pastel colour scheme, Micaela and Beth went for a fun, gender-neutral theme for their children’s bedroom space, creating a look which could span across a variety of age groups.
“The Makeover Challenge really shines a light on what you can do with pre-loved furniture,” says Micaela, who bought a simple white single bed and toy box which was then upcycled using padding and fabric. ‘‘It’s a great opportunity to be creative and make a one of a kind, unique piece.”
