How to create impact for under £100

We all know someone who has the knack of constantly coming up with new creative ideas – apparently with minimum effort and very little money. Fi definitely falls into this category. She is always coming up with something fun and new. Here are 3 of her ideas:

grafitti1. Fi’s teenage son, Cam, wanted something cool, original and unique in his bedroom. So Fi called in George, a grafitti artist, and for £60 plus two cans of spray paint Cam now has an amazing new, colourful look to his room – which (if you look carefully) even has his name hidden in the work.

desk2. This desk is in her daughter’s room. Again, it cost under £60 for this plain Ikea desk which she personalised with photos, keep sake cards, school work, certificates, and mementoes. You could use anything to add a personal touch – maybe wallpaper or funky material?

chalk board3. Easiest and least expensive of all this dramatic chalk board is created from just 1 litre of blackboard paint (£10) and a packet of chalk (£2). And the great thing is, whenever you go round there it never looks the same – sometimes it shows a menu, quotes, fun pictures, the kids artwork, absolute nonsense, to do lists or copies of work from favourite artists.

Aren’t they great?!

  1. Great post! Love the desk idea; I might think of something for my office with cuts of favorite design furniture.
