A mother who was feeling guilty about her daughter having only a box room to put her clothes in used her creativity to transform an unused airing cupboard into a walk-in wardrobe any girl would be proud of. And, she did all that for only £6($8).
Watch how she did it here:

For Sarah Ward, 28, nothing was more important than giving her 20-month-old daughter Cyenna some extra space after having only a box room for her things. That’s why she started with a metal rail she bought from a local charity and ordered a unicorn sticker from Amazon. She was able to get a piece of pink carpet from a local shop for free.
The mother-of-two then repurposed a ladder she got from her seven-year-old son Jamie-John’s old bed and sawed it off to serve as a stairway into the now-chic wardrobe.
Sarah, from Runcorn, Cheshire, said: “I wanted to do something for her. I don’t have all the money in the world and her room is so small.
“Because her room is so small I was keeping all her clothes in my bedroom. I saw a few things online and thought I’d do something myself. I went down to a carpet store and the man said he was going to sling it in the bin. Then I got the rail from a charity shop and the sticker from Amazon. I didn’t have to do anything with the rail – it was the perfect fit! Then I remembered I had my son’s old bunk bed in the attic which had a ladder on it.
“I got a saw and chopped it down so there’s a little entrance for her. She just absolutely loves it. As soon as I showed her she got really excited – it made my heart burst. She plays with her toys in there and I read to her in there before bed. My son has autism and he loves going in there to play with her too. It’s just brought so much joy for such a small price.”
The full-time mother is hoping her creative transformation at a bargain price will inspire others to make use of their unused spaces.
She added: “I personally love seeing things like this as I’m a Mrs. Hinch lover! I suffer from anxiety and depression and have found it to be a real stress buster. I did it all myself and on a small budget. I just want to show other moms that it can be easily done. If someone looks at what I’ve done and is inspired to do something in their home then that’s great!”
