The day has finally come for my last child, my baby boy, my ONLY boy to move away to college. I’m so proud of Spencer’s accomplishments thus far and I know he will make his college years memorable and successful. A future doctor in the making!
As I started packing his things for the big move, I found that Lowes carried a wide variety of items perfect for the college student. Things such as, storage tubs, a small tool set and toolbox (the hammer is so cute…and I found one in pink, which I HAD to buy for myself!), a closet kit, and an area rug. I was pleasantly surprised that nearly everything I needed, except for bedding, I could get at Lowes. Which, by the way, is one of my absolutely FAVORITE stores!
Since the beginning of year, I have purchased gift cards to give to my son when he moved to college. It’s a great way to spend a little at a time and not have to hand over a wad a cash. What I like about Lowes is, they have a wide variety of gift cards available, including iTunes. And, my son can go through iTunes cards quicker than I can buy them! So glad that I did buy iTunes cards for him to download tunes on is iPod, as we needed the music as motivation to keep moving!
So, the big day arrived and it was time to decorate his room. The dorm is one of the older residential housing on campus, so the rooms were a bit institutionalized. Yuck! However, with all the goodies I had bought, Spencer’s girlfriend, Savannah, and I went to work. We kicked Spencer and his roommate, Brandon, out of the room and told them to come back in 4 hours. We transformed an awful lack of luster college dorm room to something spectacular! From drab to FAB, for sure!
I hope you enjoyed the before and after pictures of my son, Spencer’s college dorm room. I think we did a very good job in decorating. The cost ended up to be about $300. The TV, xBox, and stand were things we had in our home. The microwave was donated. All in all, the boys were pleased, so mission accomplished for this mom!
