Man self-makeovers his bedroom to showroom standards during MCO

PETALING JAYA (April 18): A Malaysian man has used his free time during the Movement Control Order (MCO) to turn his bedroom into an “IKEA-worthy” showroom. His post on Twitter has gained huge response from people liking and praising his work.

"28 days of work during quarantine. The MCO is extended and IKEA is still closed,” the 34-year-old man tweeted, while sharing photos and a video showing his bedroom before and after the makeover.

Answering to curious netizens, he disclosed that he has spent around RM5,000 to makeover his room, including furniture, paint and other small items.

He also told that he has been sleeping on a mattress on the floor and never had the time or money to redecorate his room.

He added that he has been saving up for five years to get all of the new furniture. “It was not a 'one night money drop' thing,” he noted.

As at 6.30pm yesterday, the post has gotten over 6900 retweets and over 13,300 likes.
