YOU don't have to be a pro to successfully transform a dull, boring space, and this kid proves that age doesn't matter either.
A crafty 13-year-old decided he'd had enough of his boring beige walls and gave his bedroom an epic makeover – doing it all by himself.
Understandably proud of his efforts, his mum praised her son's handiwork and shared a TikTok video on Facebook, which he'd created to show off his room transformation.
Posting in the DIY On A Budget Facebook group, she wrote: "My 13year old son wanted to do a bedroom makeover for himself I’m so proud of him."
The clip is a time-lapse style video showing how the youngster tackled the project – with a paintbrush in hand and full of determination.
His once plain attic-style room lacked colour and personality but his new room features a bold new shade of blue and even has strip lighting lining the edges of the room and colourful LED lights above his bed.
In the video it appears thelad had a go at painting himself, even using masking tape to create straight and neat edges.
He also remembered to sand down the walls first, clean off any carpet stains, fix up any cracks or holes in the walls and add the bold new feature items – all on his own.
It's not surprising that the post quickly racked up over 12k Facebook likes and over 1.2k comments from parents and DIY fans praising the young lad'sefforts.
"That is brilliant. Well done to your son, you should be proud," one person wrote.
And another shared: "What a great kid you have you must be so proud."
A third added: "Wow. It looks GREAT!!!"
While a fourth chimed in: "Gorgeous!! Looks like he found his calling already! He did such a great job!"
Thousands more said the woman should be "proud" of her son andmany others commented on the finished look gushing over the cool strip lighting and fun colour palette.
