AS tempting as it is to fill your baby’s room with cute plush toys and pastel colours, they’ll have grown out of it before you know it.

Well if you’re thinking about how to decorate your child’s bedroom in the long-term, then you might want to take a leaf out of Tracey Currie’s book.

The mum-of-six has recently welcomed twin boys and was eyeing up furniture over £1,000 before she decided to decorate the nursery on the cheap.

She told Latest Deals: “The main aim for the boys’ nursery was that I wanted something that would grow with them: no baby murals or pastel colours as by the time they are one you have to redecorate.

“I decided on the Scandinavian theme after seeing one on Pinterest but it was really expensive with the nursery furniture costing over £1,000 on its own.”

After she’d settled on a black-and-white colour scheme, Tracey then began scouring B&M, Etsy, IKEA and ASDA for bargain interiors.

The savvy mum bagged the £40 cots and £15 mattresses from ASDA and a £10 Aztec-style rug from Wish along with some bunting, pom poms and a height chart.

She added: “They were not expensive – just the odd pound or two each but delivery can be a few weeks!”

What’s more, Tracie also made a set of white curtains out of a single bedsheet to cut costs and made her own “love” canvas using some spray paint and markers.

But one of the stand-out features of the room are the grey-and-black mountains on the walls – which she achieved with the masking tape trick to create the outline.

She added: “The mountains I just made used masking tape and some leftover black paint. I added white to alter the colours as I went!

“We have another four children between four and 15 and now the twins, so I wanted their room to be just as nice as the others but something to stimulate their eyes!”

In total, Tracie spent £180 on the nursery transformation – which came in at £70 under budget.

““Baby equipment is notoriously expensive,” she said. “But they don’t know whether they are in a £40 or £400 cot!”
