0 8 . 1 1 . 1 4 // target: one bright and happy dorm room makeover!


Emily and Solia were the perfect clients!! 

They were fun, bubbly and had great taste!  The final dorm room was a well curated room that described the girls personality to a "t"! Yes, I did install a thrift store fireplace mantel, yes there was an ugly sink in the room (which I had the lovely pleasure of hiding) and yes I secretly wanted to move in afterwards! 

just like every dorm makeover throughout this target series, my team and i only have a few hours to complete the project..... thank gosh anne from anneorshine was there.  she was a great partner in crime and kept the girls busy, especially when it came time to install and style the dorm room.  overall i was very pleased with the final outcome of the room! what do you think?

head on over to target's: a bullseye view and you can easily shop the room for target products.

i also had two super easy DIY's in the room, one in which you can watch over at A Bullseye View.  The DIY light ladder was a great way for me to bring in more lighting without having to purchase any more task or floor lamps.... which can take up a lot of valuable footprint in a tiny space.  This project will literally take anyone 5 seconds to do... i promise! 

Watch all 4 episodes from this adorable dorm makeover.  The girls sure did love it!!

WOW! I can’t believe we are already in week 3 of the @Target #BestYearEver campaign. I love re-watching the videos I did with @toddyrockstar and @iHasCupquake and reliving all the fun we had. But, this week it was all about the girls as @anneorshine1 and I worked to give Emily and Solia the best dorm makeover ever....

And, of course I wanted to create a space that Emily would love so she wouldn’t feel like she was trapped in a box and wanting to go home every weekend. I must say, us girls really rocked it out. Stay tuned throughout the week to see what we did. And, I would love to hear any stories from any of you that played the “roommate game.” How fun is that? Also, “Tan Suit” if you’re out there, I hope you’re watching.
