Greenmount resident Brandi Love had an old peg board that was bought from Bunnings that she wanted to do up.

"It was kind of just a spur of the moment thing," she said.

"I was in Kmart when I saw a tube of washi tape and thought I could do something cool with that.

"I liked the colours in the tube and wanted to recreate that on the walls, but as I couldn't place it on the walls I thought the pegboard would be the perfect option."

Ms Love, who is a product stylist and home decorĀ Instagrammer with about 59,000 followers, said she got two tubes of the $6 washi tape.

"At first it was peeling off the pegboard, so I had to glue it down," she said.

"Overall it took about 45 minutes to get the rainbow effect."

The DIY idea came after Ms Love spent a bit of time thinking about how she could improve her children's playroom.

"I just wanted that wow factor, to brighten this wall up a bit," she said.

To top off the colourful room Ms Love bought a $45 bench seat from Kmart and reupholsteredĀ it with a colourful new seat cover.

"The kids love it," she said.

"We've got some pegs on there to hangĀ theirĀ pictures andĀ paintings, as they're always paintingĀ something and want to peg it up," she said.

"My eldest, she recently made a butterfly mosaic, so it's great for that craft stuff from school that's too good to put away, so we put it display using the pegboard."

The mum's Instagram post also gained the attention of housing magazineĀ Better Homes and Gardens.Ā 

"I didn't expect to get in Better Homes and Gardens," Ms Love said.
