A DOTING mum who created a gorgeous jungle-themed bedroom for her five-year-old autistic son has won praise from DIY fans online.

With artificial plants, a stunning tropical mural and an adorable canopy bed, the bedroom is the perfect place for the little boy to relax and unwind.


Sharing pictures of the finished room to the Facebook group DIY On A Budget Official, the mum wrote: "I was set a hard task by my five-year-old autistic son.

"He wanted an animal bedroom but I also needed to keep it practical for his needs.
"I had and work with not much space as it is a box room.

"He absolutely loves his new room and after 5 years of sleeping with me, he is finally sleeping alone."


"Since I did his room and he has his swing and a calm down box, he hasn’t trashed it."

The finished room features a stunning feature wall, complete with proud tiger cub sitting among tropical leaves.

Meanwhile, the mum incorporated a swing, which can be calming and therapeutic for autistic children.
