Weirdly, I just found some pics of my senior year dorm room (I graduated in '04). I'm not sure why I took these, as it's messy as all get out, so I clearly wasn't showing off. Oh well, ignore the mess, enjoy the awesomeness.
This was a basement room, which sucked for lighting, but it was a quad and we had it as a double, so there was a ridiculous amount of room. Here's my (full size!) bed, which I put in this weird nook in the corner. I made curtains and (you can't quite see it in the picture) re-purposed a strange wood-shop looking bookcase I found in the storage room as a headboard. It's also up on a gajillion cinderblocks, and had an acre of storage underneath that I covered with more curtains.
This is our couch, which we got from the Habitat for Humanity store for 5 bucks. Since it looked like someone had possibly a) died on it. b) been lit on fire on it. c) had that fire doused with bleach, we decided to recover it. Three ladies and a staple-hammer later, and there was this. We also decoupaged a shiny shiny $3 coffee table which is not in the photo for some reason.
This is my desk area, which I only put in to show the fabulous re-purposed card catalog we used as a bar/wine rack. I still have this, 4 moves and three cities later. My roommate's desk and loft was to the right. Seriously, enormous room.
Last is a shot of my closet (yes, just mine, my roommate's is on the left side of the picture) that was so huge I kept my clothes in half and put a sewing table in the other half for a permanent craft area. There was an outlet in there and everything.
Thanks for letting me reminisce!
