It may look like Abby Bozeman and Lindy Goodson are living in a palace. But they’ve actually just moved into their dorm at Ole Miss in Oxford, Mississippi.
The freshmen went all out to make their dorm room as homey and fancy as possible, and Goodson’s original photo went viral on Twitter.
Lindy Goodson explained how the tiny abode came to be.
“At our school, nearly all dorms are decorated like ours!” she said. “So many people here are unique and creative and their rooms match. We knew school would get stressful and we wanted a calm space to return to after long days.”
Goodson and Bozeman, who both plan on majoring in Integrated Marketing Communications, had plenty of time to plan everything out. The pair connected via social media back in September 2015, met during a campus tour a month later, and by December, they began planning their room.
Most of their goodies came from home and antique stores. Some of it even came from their own bedrooms back home.
The girls were able to keep a modest budget when shopping by browsing discount stores and adding a little DIY magic.
“We don’t know a total price of the room but we do know we saved a lot by bargain shopping and using some creativity to make things we already owned work,” Goodson said.
She added blue ribbons to stools she found, and Bozeman refurbished an antique dresser. They splurged on custom made headboards, pillows and extra long bed skirts.
The women’s favorite part of the room is a little unexpected.
“Our favorite pieces are the ostrich and llama paintings above our beds, in frames Abby found at her home,” Goodson said. “We think they are so fun!”
We hope Lindy and Abby don’t let their gorgeous room distract them from studying too much this year.
