‘Update from my late night selfie on Sunday. I’m obsessed with making the wardrobe a feature, leaving doors off makes the bedroom feel so much bigger,’ she said online.

Once the wall was done and the tape was removed, Bec added glitter glue on top of the white lines to enhance an extra element.

To keep the cost under $200 the vanity mirror, drawers and stool were second-hand. 

Bec said the IKEA Lekman square storage boxes were also on sale for $15 each.
