Dorm Room Dos and Don'ts
For college-bound students, the key is learning how to maximize space on a minimal budget while also adding style. Check out these great tips from a recent college graduate who learned things the hard way.
Thrifty Bed Skirt
Keep those storage containers out of sight with a custom-length bed skirt. If you have a sewing machine and some extra time,
you can easily make your own custom bed skirt to match the height of your bed.
Burlap comes in a variety of colors and is a durable, yet inexpensive fabric. The rough texture of the fabric will add an organic feel to your room.
Tip: When measuring, be sure to include the added height of the bed risers. If you don't know the height, leave on excess fabric and use iron-on hem tape when you move in.
