Two students of University of Mississippi, Abby Bozeman and Lindy Goodson put their creative heads together and transformed their bare looking freshman dorm room into a lavishly luxe space with a faux fur rug, pattterned curtains and handmade velvet headboards.
Their story went viral after one of the girls, Goodson posted their room’s before and after photos on Twitter. The girls, in an interview with Us Weekly spoke about their budget friendly dorm makeover. Goodson revealed that the lamps were on clearance from Hobby Lobby, while the plush stools were from HomeGoods; she just added blue ribbon to make them appealing.
“I made the curtain on the dresser out of a hand towel from the clearance aisle at T.J. Maxx.”
Bozeman however found the dresser at an antique shop. According to her:
“It was originally brown and had a missing drawer, so we had a man refurbish it and paint it white. Then we added crystal knobs from Home Depot.”
However, the girls disclosed that their luxe room was nothing out of the ordinary as all the other rooms looked pretty much like theirs.
“No one here understands why we’re going viral!”
