Mum divides opinions over her son’s ‘terrifying’ shark bedroom makeover

A mum who gave her son’s bedroom a makeover has divided opinions as some people said it was so”terrifying” they would “never sleep again.”

Sharnene Jewell regularly shares DIY tips and upcycling transformations on her social media like how to get rid of those annoying roller marks.

One of her most recent projects though was for her 17-year-old son Morgan.

Sharnene spent a week on the project and spent a total of £500, but the centre-piece, fibreglass great white head cost just £25 from eBay.

Sharing the process in a video on her Instagram, she started by painting a square shape on her son’s dark blue wall.

She then roughly covers over the surrounding navy colour with white paint, to create the effect of foamy waves.

Then, with a stippling motion, she begins to blend grey paint into the black, before repeating with a lighter grey.

She completes the look by hanging the shark head in the centre, to make it look like it is coming out of the water.

Thrilled with the result, the 45-year-old posted snaps of the wacky bedroom on Facebook and it went viral with over 28,000 likes and comments, but it wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

Sharnene, of Cardiff, South Wales, said: “We bought the shark from a seller on eBay.

“His bedroom has been lots of colours and has changed many times, the shark is one of his favourite things.

“The paint effect took a couple of days.

“My husband and I made the wardrobes and desk. We made them at different times, we did the wardrobes first.

“They also took a few days and then the desk in about a day, in total about a week, but not all in one go.

“It’s not going to be to everyone’s taste, but at least he liked it.”

One person made reference to the Jaws movies and joked: “You’re gonna need a bigger bed.”

Another added: “My son said he wants the same bedroom.

A third said: “That is awesome.”

But others weren’t so sure, as one person wrote: “Personally I wouldn’t want it in my house but it’s absolutely fantastic.”

And someone else said: “I would never sleep again, it’s bloody terrifying.”
