It is seriously hard to believe it’s almost time to head back to school. This summer I’ve channeled my crafty side and attempted to make different decorations to use in my dorm or give away as gifts.
Different canvases I made!
I gave away 4/5 of these as grad presents to different seniors I knew going off to college 🙂
I found this old TV stand and decided to make spruce it up a bit!
I purchased this blue spray paint and after sanding the table, I was ready to start painting!
After this picture I used another coat of paint to even it out and then used a finishing spray to coat the table and voila! Done!
3 Drawer Storage Cart
I have a three drawer plastic organizer that I plan to use in my dorm this year.
I hated that the drawers were see through so I spray painted them white, and ta-duh, no longer transparent drawers full of junk 🙂
I printed my monogram and then taped freezer paper over it. I then used an X-Acto knife and made a stencil!
The stencil can be used with fabric on shirts, hats, backpacks… etc.
I found wooden letters at Michaels on sale for only 50 cents! I painted them and added string and made the perfect initials for a dorm wall or door 🙂
That completes my DIY projects this summer. I’m super excited to set everything up in my new room! Pictures of my dorm to come 🙂
