Chrissy's Dorm Room
DIY whimsical pinwheel wall that actually spins! Such a fun idea for kids spaces, and it's SO inexpensive to make!
"Thrift store frame + simple wooden box + paint & hooks" / instead of trying to find a cool box!
Find a poster big enough & mod podge to front of cabinet. Exacto knife to slit around the drawers & some gentle sanding on all the edges to take off the extra paper. Spruce up the ol'dresser!
Easy DIY- a piece of wood, 4 legs (all of which are sold at home depot for around $5)- padding, and then staple pretty fabric :) - Could make a nice custom bench for the end of the bed. @Chrissy Hisel - if instead of a flat board you used a drawer, then hinged the flat board to the top of it, you'd have storage, too . . .
3 bookcases from Ikea - one turned sideways & painted w/ chalkboard paint. ... ooohhh neat! i can see this also working for a fabric board or photo collage area. My only reservation with these types of storage is that the baskets can be hard to find in an ideal size, Ikeas shelf and box sizing is always ~just a bit~ too small
Isn't this clever? 3 bookcases from Ikea - one turned sideways & painted w/ chalkboard paint.
Headboards- I love the idea of storage and a headboard
Plastic Solo Cup Light...great for ambient light in a classroom...and it's recyclable :) Somehow I think Chrissy will want RED SOLO CUPs!!
Weekly calendar. Designed each frame with scrapbook supplies, then use dry erase marker on the glass.
Ladder as bookshelves
This would look awesome in a dorm room . . .
Magazine paper rolled up and glued to a balloon. Burst balloon after drying. But I'm thinking of doing this w/ yarn or ribbon instead of paper . . . or maybe in addition (mixed media??)
