2 Preps & a Dorm Room



After all summer of planning, list-making, and ENDLESS trips to Bed Bath & Beyond, I am happy to announce I am finally moved in! I have a tendency to get visions in my head and go to all ends to make those visions a reality. Well my vision has finally come truly! In the beginning of summer, moving into my dorm room literally seemed so far away. Years even.  My mom basically had to force me to order my bedding in June because I assumed I would have so much time later in the summer. I was clearly wrong and am so thankful I got a head start. I highly suggest starting early like I did! Over the summer and in-between NYC and Hawaii my mom and I would gather things to add to my massive pile. We had a growing pile sitting in my bonus room just waiting to be piled into the car!

After a long day of moving in on Friday and 6 people shoved into a teeny tiny dorm room, 2 preppy girls are happily moved in and are settling into their new home at Furman University!

So now for the big reveal…..

Stay tuned for a post next week on some of the other dorm room crafts I made before I came such as my ottoman, my bed shelf, and my shower curtain!

Comment on this post if you have any question about where anything is from and I'll be sure to reply!

Check out my post about how to make the adorable Lilly Letters that are hung in my room!


Remember,

xoxo,

    1. Hi! I actually bought them from Michaels and A.C. Moore and then you just have to fluff them up! Super easy and the ones I used are actually left over from my graduation party! Most craft stores carry them!

    1. Hi! Actually our school provides us with the beds and we can choose the level they are! Most college provide the students with the bed frame and mattress. But I totally agree, it's the perfect height!

  4. Hi. Your dorm is adorable. I am so excited to go to college next year after looking at all of this! I was wondering if the photos/ framed pictures above your bed were DIYs or purchased. They are such a cute idea. Also, what does the macaron one say? Did you draw it yourself?

  14. Hi! I love your backpack and was wondering how hard it was to get the monogrammed done? Was it difficult to get done with the placement and did it take a long time for it to finish? Thank you!

  16. Are most dorm beds able to be adjusted to the "half loft" height?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Absolutely adorable! How did you get your frames to stick to a brick wall? My dorm room is all brick and I would love to be able to decorate the walls so that it looks less like a prison cell.

  18. I love your room! And I'm planning on going to SUNY Oneonta as a freshman. But I was wondering, where did you put your suitcases when you moved in?

  19. I love this room! I'm heading to university in Canada next fall and was wondering where you got the little pink thing that seems to be attached to the side of your bed by your headboard? The way my dorm room is going to be set up, I don't really have a bedside table space which is something I really would like to have!
