Thrifty mum makes stunning rainbow room for kids using £1.20 paint pots from Wilko

TWO years ago, we fell hard and fast for the grey interior trend that was popping up all over our social media feeds.

But 2020 was the year we discovered rainbow colours – as they became a symbol of support for the NHS during the coronavirus crisis.

And now one savvy mum has revealed how she created a stunning rainbow room for her kids without spending a fortune.

Posting on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, the mum explained how she used six of Wilko's £1.25 tester paint pots to create the colourful decor.

She wrote: "Wilko tester pots are only £1.20 managed to do the kids a rainbow for the playroom and still have half full pots left!!

"[They're] fab if you wanted to do a feature, they definitely seem to have the most range of colours!"

The mum gave the wooden shelves in her kids' playroom a new lease of life by painting each section in a different shade to match the rainbow on the wall.

The post has racked up almost 5,000 'likes' in the group – and other parents were inspired by her efforts.

One replied: "Rainbow playroom of dreams!"

Another added: "My dream wall!"

A third gushed: "Oh my god this is beautiful! It's like a Pinterest room!"
