A few months back, I teased you with the fabrics for Doodlebug’s new dorm room.
You might remember, this room is dorm room #3 I have put
together for her. But, I think it might be the charmer!
Here’s a picture of their room fabric to refresh the ol’ memory.
This fabric was a great find and really set the stage for the whole room.
On installation day, somebody was shy!!!
Honey Do had to build these canopies so they were freestanding.
Why, you might ask ??!!
because the first nail into the wall costs $40 and each, thereafter
costs $10 apiece!!! Gotta love Residence Housing! Lol
I made them each a monogram pillow using an old tablecloth I found
for 75 cents at the thrift shop and some chocolate brown bias tape.
A close up of the duvet cover and bedskirt—-One side of the duvet is an icy blue that is a soft poly/rayon fabric that has a sheen to it and the other side is a baby blue flannel for snuggly softness!
A close up of Doodlebug’s bed looking all spiffy and pulled together.
The inset on the valance and the background fabric behind the headboard
is a camel and cream check. The striped pillow cover and the sequin pillow
came from the local thrift shop for 50 cents each.
Roomie’s side of the room —Looking good!!!
Final cost for the room…. drumroll, please……….$146 each!
I went over my budget by $46 dollars but the smiles on their faces–
