Lorelei says,  ‘I am a disabled single mum to three, who has a major passion for art. So when the kids want me to do something, I get my creative head on.'

'I came up with the idea when I was messing around with my painter's tape, and one thing led to another.'

'All I did was put painter's tape all over the walls, then decided on the colour to go with the rest of the colours in the house.'

To stay within budget Lorelei went sales shopping, 'I went to Wilko to get the Dulux paint – it was half price at the time.'
