Here's what I didn't like about my first college roommate (approximately 30,000 years ago):
- Not that she went out partying one night the first week of school.
- Not that she stumbled into our dorm room drunk and woke me up.
- Not that she threw up and passed out.
- Not even that I had to clean up her mess since I really didn't know anyone else yet and my choices were: make it go away or try to sleep with it there on the floor all night.
No, what really bothered me was that she ruined a rug that her parents had bought for the dorm room to put over the institutional carpeting.
And I thought that was cool that they did that because decorating a dorm room wasn't that common, you know, 30,000 years ago.
Now there are so many choices for making dorm rooms comfy. So I scouted around to show you a few ideas in case you know anyone heading off to college soon.
OK, bed risers are fairly common and aren't just for dorm rooms... but I do love them. They make room for storage under the bed and give a bed so much more presence.
Macy's has these on sale for $9.99 for four.
JC Penney has these floor loungers on sale for $79.99. They're adjustable. I think they look like a fun place to hang out.
Dormbuys.com offers 80 peel and stick Dottilicious Wall Art dots for $49.99. You can arrange them any way you want.
I like the idea of this Cling Thing Message Board, also from Dormbuys.com. It's supposed to stick to walls without hurting the paint and then you just stick stuff to it.
PB teen has this lounging/storage system. I would have loved this when I was in college... or now.
Has anyone out there found anything fun to add to the list?
PS: Lil' Miss Pukester and I parted ways shortly after she redecorated the rug. I hope she's happy now... or in prison... whichever.
