After that I need the material, you can buy new material but a good way to save some money is to get it free from Gumtree. Specially in London, there’s a lot of people moving home and some times they have that furniture that they don’t need at a lower price or even free to collect. If you are in other countries probably you have other second hand selling platforms, for example in Portugal you can get this from OLX.

If you are painting a room you would like to see the project idea before buying the paint and for this I use an app called Dulux Visualiser that allow you to take photo and replace the colour of the walls – and in case you want, you can buy the paint directly from the app. Again if you’re in a saving mood you can search in Gumtree for free rest of paint.

Do you need to hang some frames/pictures in the wall and want it to be aligned? Just use the inbuilt app from your iPhone, go to the Compass app, swipe left and turn it to landscape mode and that all you need – a level. Alternatively you can use the Bubble Level app.
