This insanely extravagant dorm room is nicer than your bedroom


The average college freshman’s dorm room consists of a carpet of unwashed clothing, some empty ramen packets, and a few classic movie posters peeling off the wall. But when incoming freshmen Lindy Goodson and Abby Bozeman decided to share a dorm room at The University of Mississippi, they knew they had to take the decor up several notches.

In spite of appearances, Goodson said that it really didn’t cost very much to make their living space oh-so-fabulous. It just took a little imagination and a whole lot of bargain shopping.

“Abby found the dresser at an antique shop and had it repainted and added some crystal knobs (from Home Depot!). The curtain on the dresser is a hand towel my mom found at TJ Maxx and made into a little cafe curtain (it covers paper plates & such). I also found the lamps at Hobby Lobby on clearance and the stools from Home Goods (which I hot glued some velvet ribbon on),” Goodson said.

Their favorite part of the room is the llama and ostrich paintings above their beds.

“These are the first things we bought and we think they are so fun The best part about them is that they haven’t fallen off the wall and onto our heads yet shout out to Command Strips”
