Decorating my room is something I love to do.  Since it’s my own space, I ultimately get to decide what hangs on the walls or goes on my dresser.  With fall in full swing, the decorations are as well!  Since DIYs are one of my favorite pastimes, adding a festive touch makes for the perfect DIY room décor!

  • During fall, you can never have too many pumpkins.  Chelsea Crockett - Pumpkin DecorSeveral stores sell mini pumpkins that are easy to decorate and store in your room!  Buy some paint, glitter, etc. to match your room and make your pumpkin into the perfect decoration.
  • Make your own pumpkin spice candle!  You might be thinking what?  You can do that?  There are tons of recipes online to create your own fall scented candle. You can burn it and fill your room with the sweet smell of pumpkin spice!
  • I’ve always loved decking out my room with twinkle lights to make it warm and cozy.  To get a little more festive, purchase orange or yellow-tinted twinkle lights to hang around your room.  Along with your other fall decorations, these will finish off the job and create the perfect autumn atmosphere!

Whether you’re adding décor to your dorm at school or bedroom at home, I hope you create the perfect festive touch for the season!

Love, Chelsea

Old Pillowcase DIY for Dorms & Bedrooms

DIYs are my specialty! I love doing them on a rainy day with my friends or when I simply don’t have anything else to do. My favorite DIYs are the ones that don’t take much to make them. Especially when they’re crafty and creative, but inexpensive and quick! Here’s one of my recent favorites that you can create for your dorm or bedroom!

Depending on how you want your masterpiece to look, you’ll need five or six pillowcases (or if your pillowcases are big like the picture on the left, you simply may Chelsea Crockett - Pillowcase DIYonly need four).  You’ll need a sewing kit and the same amount of pillows as pillowcases (obviously!). This DIY is actually extremely simple! All you have to do is line up your pillowcases horizontally parallel to each other and sow them together one-by-one. After you’re done sewing, stuff in your pillows. It’s actually that easy! I love all the different ways you can make them. You can either do the same patterned pillowcase such as the picture above or switch it up and do different patterns and colors! I suggest matching it to your dorm or bedroom. Whenever your friends spend the night, all you have to do is pull it out! I suggest storing it under your bed to save space.

Let me know how yours turns out :)!

Love, Chels

As a girl, our room is our pride and joy. It might not be the cleanest place in the world, but it’s a place we can be the boss of and call our own. My favorite part about having my own room is the decorating and personalizing. Pinterest, of course, is the heart of my inspiration. I’ve found some décor that I didn’t know I was missing out on!

Chelsea Crockett - Corner RackIf you struggle with picking out an outfit in the morning, use the old “pick it out before you go to sleep” trick. Except now you have an actual way to put this to use! Build a rack in one of the corners of your room and create an outfit to hang on it. Now you can organizing your outfit for work or school the night before.

Have you ever heard of removable wallpaper? I’m in love! You can choose from hundreds of different patterns to match the rest of your room. You can pick black and white chevron print or hot pink and purple polka dots! Check it out :).

Lastly, DIY headboards are decorative and fun to create! There a tons and tons of different designs you can do. If you’re into photography, string a bunch of pictures (preferable Polaroids!) together and hang them above your bed. If you’re an artist, create your own masterpiece. Whatever suits you!

What’s your favorite room décor? Let me know below :).

Love, Chels

Bored of your bedroom, but don’t have enough money or time to re-do the whole thing?  Try a DIY makeover!  There are so many fun and simple projects you can do alone, with your friends, or with your family to makeover your room.  With a few little tweaks, it can look like you have a brand new room.  Let’s get at it!Chelsea Crockett- bulletin board

One of my favorite things to have in my room is lots and lots of pictures!  So what do you do when you have hundreds of pictures and nowhere to put them?  Create a wall sized bulletin board!  You’ll need some help with this one.  Start with a large piece of thin, light wood, you can find this at any home improvements store.  Next, purchase multiple square blocks of thin bulletin board and cover each one with a different type of material that matches your bedroom.  Place each square on the light wood and hot glue them down.  Make them nice and sturdy!  Last, add a fun border, another item you can purchase for cheap at a home improvements store.  Hang it up on your wall and add as many pictures as you’d like with tacks.  All done!

An easier way to change up your room is to add light!  Lighting makes all the difference in a room.  Go to a resell-it-shop or garage sell and find old lamps.  Spray paint the base of each lamp and add a new shade.  It’s so simple.  Not only will your room be brighter, but it will be filled with colorful accessory lighting.

Have fun,

Chelsea

Hi Insiders,

            Do you share a room or small space with a sibling or live away at school with a   roommate?  Sometimes, sharing a small space with someone can be very difficult.  Personalities clash, cleanliness becomes a problem, and some of their habits may bug you!  Here are a few tips to keep you and your roommate or sibling from budding heads.Chelsea Crockett- dorm

            Everyone wants their own space and their own place to get away, but sometimes you’ve got to share a space with someone for long periods of time.  Make sure to always pick up after yourself even if you’ve had a long day.  A lot of people get in the habit or throwing their clothes on the ground and don’t clean it up until it becomes too much!  Keep your clutter under control.  If your roommate does something that bothers you, take a breather.  Everyone does things differently.  Just because he/she may whistle constantly doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing!  If it bothers you that much and you’ve gave it some thought, then kindly bring up the matter with your roommate.  If they set 10 alarms before their 8a.m. class, then it’s okay to bring that up right away!  Rate the issue on a scale of 1-10 and think about if the issue is worth discussing!  Always be open with your roommate.  It’s hard to keep secrets when you’re living so close to that person.  No matter who they are, always try to be their friends.  I know I’d rather be friends with my roommate than enemies! 

            Take all of this into consideration and enjoy having a roomie!  One day you might actually miss it!  Be honest, courteous, and open…all of these attributes go a long way!

-Chelsea
