Hey everyone! Yeah remember that post where I was all like “I’m totally going to be posting more now!” and then didn’t? Yeah sorry about that…BUT I will be going home in a few weeks and will hopefully have time to blog some more :) Thank you all for your patience with me.
So for this post I will show you a really neat thing you can do to decorate your dorm room! I think it’s added a lot of flair to our otherwise sort of drab room.
Woah! Isn’t it cool?
So what I did was ask my mom and sister to go to Home Depot and pick out a bunch of paint samples in different colors. I then used tape to attach them to the wall. This project is great because it’s pretty much free (besides the cost of tape), it’s easy to do, and it looks super impressive. Right now I have Christmas lights all over the room and I love how the colored lights look against the paint samples.
Here’s idea number two- displaying photos.
I love this for displaying photos. All you do is buy some Jute string ($2-$4 at Home Depot), some clothes pins, and have your photos printed. I have two of these strands in my room and I love them! They’re easy to put up, cheap to make, and look super awesome. Since it’s Christmas season, I have added some green tinsel.
You can also see that I have a bunch of other things on my wall. I love my pink white board, black chalkboard, and little cork board. They’re great for notes, hanging cards, letters, and photos, and for Christmas countdowns!
Ahh Christmas countdowns…one is days until Christmas and one is days until Christmas break! Woohoo! You may also notice that I hung some pretty little snowflakes on the wall- $1 at the Dollar Tree. I love that store around Christmas time!
As you can tell, I am very excited about Christmas and got pretty into decorating my room. Here is a collage of my room decorations (I have actually added more since I took the photo ;). I actually just won a contest for best decorated dorm room!
I hope you got some fun ideas for decorating your room- whether it’s a dorm room or just in your house! Let me know if you have any questions or if you try any of these ideas!
