A fashion photographer and blogger who is renovating her Victorian home in Norwich has posted on social media some before and after images.
Leanne Lim-Walker, who has 140,000 followers on Instagram, has been renovating her home on a budget and been posting images of her work as she transforms each room.
Her latest project has been in her master bedroom which Leanne has transformed with painted white floorboards, a mural depicting cranes on one wall and a four poster bed.
She posted: "I cannot believe this is our bedroom, 14 days of hard graft to get to this point." The focal point is a modern, king-size four poster bed which Ms Ms Lim-Walker got from Argos but painted it black along with a wardrobe and bedside tables.
Ms Lim-Walker posted on her project Instagram account @leannelimwalkerhome back in October how she was stripping woodchip wallpaper off her bedroom walls with each step also documented on her Youtube channel.
She has also shown how she has decorated her living room with a corner sofa and huge bamboo fan on the wall in another image.
Ms Lim-Walker first began her YouTube channel in 2012 and her first video amassed 15,000 views. In 2014 Asthma UK selected one of her photographs for its three-year ad campaign.
She regularly posts about her two cats Chester and Blu as well as the house which she and her fiance bought last year. She recently posted: "We still have so much to do to the house but hey, we're on a budget, we like to do the work ourselves where we can and we're in no rush to get it all done. I see people who can renovate a whole place in a year, I mean we would if we could but no rushing into decisions, instead we're letting things come together slowly."
Ms Lim-Walker has documented the entire bedroom makeover over the past 14 days both on Instagram and Twitter, from the stripping of the wallpaper on day one, removing an old wardrobe and fireplace that wasn't original to getting the ceiling skimmed, filling walls and installing coving to priming the walls, putting up a ceiling rose, getting the mural painted, removing carpet and painting the floorboards to dressing the room with the four poster bed.
