As much as I wanted to title this post “Welcome to my crib, wanna come in?” I refrained. Because this is a sophisticated blog. 😉
I finally moved into my room in college! I’m living in my sorority house again, and I’m thrilled to finally have a single room to decorate however I want. I wanted it to be homey, pretty, and relaxing. More like a bedroom than a dorm room. It’s full of floral, chevron, and scalloped details. And pillows. Because you can never have enough pillows.
Dresser/vanity and bed – I made the felt flowers using felt, cardboard for the back, and super-strong glue. I made the scalloped garland using a circular hole punch and yarn. I simply punch circles into white paper, folded each circle over the yarn, and taped the sides of the circles using double-sided tape. You can also see my makeup organization system in this photo.

Desk area – Check out this post to see how I made the C canvas. You can see my stack of to-do lists next to my computer in this photo!
End of my bed – I painted the sorority letters using acrylic paint and covered them with Mod Podge. To make the omega, I just flipped a “U” upside down! I made the paint chip canvas using an old canvas from an art sale and paint chips from the hardware store. I lined the front of the plastic drawers with scrapbook paper, and again, click here to see how I made the whale canvas.
I feel like I’ve been MIA from the blog world for so long… what has everybody been up to?
