I’ve heard this weekend is one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year with all the students heading back to school after Labor Day to pick up new clothes, school supplies, and dorm room items. So I thought this weekend might be a good one to throw in some dorm decor ideas into the mix, so when you’re off shopping you can keep a few of these ideas in mind. See below for dorm and even bedroom/study area DIY and decor ideas!
1. STRING ART (DIY)
A fun and easy way to make some wall art for a dorm room. String, nails, and a piece of wood and you’re set! Visit prettyLOVEprettyLIFE for the how-to.
2. VINTAGE SUITCASE NIGHTSTAND (IDEA)
This clever idea serves two purposes: nightstand and storage. Get the details at Cupcakes and Cashmere.
3. ADD SOME GREEN
Nothing adds instant coziness than a little bit of greenery. Loving these jam jar ideas out of Etsy! Visit BootsNGus for more info.
4. HANG SOMETHING INSPIRATIONAL
Lets face it, studying can be hard. And without your family nearby, sometimes a little inspiration hanging around can really help. Love this “It’s OK” banner fromSecret Holiday. Visit Etsy for more info.
5. MAKE A MODULAR SHELF (DIY)
Make your own modular shelf using plywood and a few handy tools. Visit Curate This Space for the how-to.
6. LEATHER STRAP HANGERS (IDEA)
These aren’t a DIY — but you can purchase these leather strap handles by Mathilda Clahr.
