After seeing my home in BH&G, my college dorm roommate sent me a Facebook message asking why in the world I hadn’t used my decorating skills back in the day when we put our sad room together. That’s a good question. . . Our room was really bad. (Although we thought it was pretty awesome, at the time, in all of it’s burgundy and hunter green glory.)
It seems that dorm rooms have gotten a little more glamorous since then. Look at this transformation by Kara Paslay Designs that I found in my online searching.
The depressing before. . .
And, the happy after:
My favorite part of the room is this $15 headboard made from an inexpensive (stained) piece of wood and some painter’s tape (sprayed gold).
This is great as a headboard and could also work on any wall where you need a big graphic piece. Read more about this project here.
Okay, confess. What’s the ugliest thing you did to your dorm room?
