We moved Ali into her first apartment this weekend in Pullman. She came back home with us for the next two weeks before school starts. She has her room all fixed up and virtually all she needs to do when she returns is bring her desk chair. She wanted to do a gallery wall in her room and found an inspiration pic online.
I think her wall turned out pretty cute! A couple of pieces she had from her dorm room last year and the rest were either made or purchased this year.
Her bed looks so comfy! We wanted to use some of what she had last year and not have to buy everything new. The gray comforter is new, but the turquoise duvet and pillowcases were from last year. The shelf is new from decorsteals.com, but the stuff on the shelf is from last year.
We looked and couldn't find a night stand we liked, so my hubby screwed two old apple boxes together and it fits perfectly! The lamp is new from Hobby Lobby.
The sign over the door and the 'A' on her door were in her room last year. You can kind of see the bathroom across the hall.
This dresser was in my living room. We brought it for Ali's room and it, too, fits perfectly. The t.v., jewelry box, and "Alison" picture holder was in her room last year, but the hanging ball and lanterns are new.
The door panel is new from decorsteals.com and Ali found the little white cabinet this week for 50% off at an antique store. The desk used to sit in her room at home with her doll house on it. She refinished it and changed the hardware on the drawer. Her chair is still being refinished at home.
The closet was open when we got here. They had doors on them when John and I lived here. It looked ok, but we wanted to cover it. We went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and got a tension rod and two curtain panels to hang. It looks so much better!
This sign hung in Ali's dorm room last year, too.
Here is a peek at the bathroom. It isn't finished yet because the girl she shares it with is still bringing some stuff.
Ali loves her room! She should be very comfortable here. The only drawback is the carpet is horrible! It's dirty and stained and I don't think any amount of shampooing can get it clean. She called the office and they said it will be replaced and they will move her things. I sure hope they don't break anything!
