Upgrade Your Space

When I moved to college this year, I knew that I wanted to do something different with my dorm room. I didn’t want that typical, poster-covered college dorm room that a majority of people have. There’s nothing wrong with having that, in fact, that’s basically what my freshman dorm room looked like! But, I wanted my room this year to feel more like an apartment and less like a college dorm room.

After sleuthing through Pinterest for a few hours (let’s be honest, it was more like a few days), I found my answer.
