Living in a small dorm can be difficult, but making it feel and look like a home can make all the difference. And as an Interior Designer nothing makes me more happy than to take on the big challenge of making a cinder block, square, blah room look fabulous!

Storage, Homework Desk, Vanity

Being in a small dorm I have had to come up with creative ways to get full use of space, functionality, and aesthetics. First off was getting around not being able to put nails in the wall. This was fixed with a wonderful old barn door, an old rake head, and two vintage bicycle baskets. As you could guess, I am completely jealous if you live on an old farm. I bought everything from "junk" stores and antique shops and every piece was under $30 (with the whole project totaling around $70) Next problem was storage so I grabbed my side table, which added a chic aspect to my vintage style. And lastly was taking this space from universal to personal-- I added pictures, jewelry, and a big "J" for Jorgi or Jesus :).
