A Fabulous Wall... for $13

Doesn't the wall of that playroom look absolutely fabulous? Would you believe that the creative mastermind made it using scrapbook paper and glue dots? I think that this would be a fun thing to do on dorm room walls. Scrapbook paper comes in such pretty colors and patterns... and at stores like Hobby Lobby and Michael's, you can score some on the cheap. For a dorm, you may want to skip over the glue dots though because they may not be allowed due to damage. You could however pull it off with some poster-putty or double-sided tape, depending on what your school allows. (Do make sure to read the handbook or ask your hall adviser about what is and what isn't allowed on dorm room walls.)

Although the effect of an entire wall is eye-catching, I think it'd be neat to just do a section above the bed... like a fake headboard kinda thing. This diy is on my list of possibilities.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
