Just call me DIY Girl

This week, my life has become a DIY Pinterest board. I have done pretty much every single DIY craft ever to be pinned on Pinterest. But, hey, I’m not complaining. Feel free to check out room 423 in Brown and I’m sure that it will be the best lookin’ dorm room you’ve ever seen.
I started off the week by doing some crafts at home with my mom. We started the night thinking we were just going to do one simple craft, but then we ended up taking on several other projects. Isn’t that how it always goes? Anyway, I wanted to decorate my plain plastic drawers because I want my dorm to feel more like home, rather than a temporary place to live. So I bought some fabric and lined the drawers with it and I think that they look pretty snazzy.
Later this week, my future roomie Katie and I had a craft night at her house. We spent the entire evening sprawled out on her living room floor surrounded by buttons, paint, glue, paper, magazines, sequins, stickers, scissors, tape, etc. It was a crafting night of epic proportions. I had previously purchased the first letters of all my roommates’ first names and planned on decorating them that night. Not to toot my own horn, but I think that they turned out absolutely perfect. We also got a whole bunch of paint strips and made a dry erase calendar out of them!
Trying to decorate an entire room can get a little expensive, but with all of my crafts I maybe spent a total of $10 and I think I might even have too many things to decorate my room with! I seriously cannot wait to get to Concordia and live with my best friends in a room full of our awesome crafts. 🙂
