Classes started on Tuesday, which means a new school year is officially in swing. This is my last semester!! I still can’t believe that.
This year the same group of six girls from last year are living in an on-campus townhouse. It’s similar to the lodges that we lived in last year, but it’s two-story. As always, I had a blast decorating it and I can’t wait to share it with you! Let’s get started.
Unlike the lodges, the townhouse’s entry is on the outside, rather than on the inside like a hotel. Unfortunately, there isn’t a peep hole in the door. Instead there is a long, skinny window next to the door. However, nobody wants people to be able to see in their house all the time, so most people end up covering it. I found some paper with a shiplap design on it at Hobby Lobby, so I covered the window with that! I also purchased this super cute doormat from Walmart for only $8!! What a steal! The RA made the sign on the door.
When you first enter the townhouse, the stairs are directly in front, with the living room and kitchen off to the left. Our living room is slightly smaller than last year, but it’s still a pretty good size. We have a similar set up with the couches and coffee table and end tables with the TV on the opposite wall. I put up the DIY drop cloth curtains on the window. If you want to know how I made them, click here.
Directly off the living room is the kitchen. There is pretty minimal decor in here since it’s so small and we have a lot of appliances we need counter space for. However, there is one of my favorite tea towels on the oven door and the “Fresh Baked Pies Served Daily” sign from World Market is hanging above the sink. Of course I have my Hearth and Hand by Magnolia cream and sugar cellars by my Keurig. Off of the kitchen is the washer and dryer. There isn’t really any decor in there, but you could easily hang some signs on the wall if you wanted. Hobby Lobby usually has a great selection of laundry signs.
Mine and my roommate’s room is upstairs. This year each room gets their own bathroom, and we each get our own individual closet. Last year four of us had to share a bathroom, so that is a really nice change. I hung my “Get Naked” sign again, as well as the “Let’s Roll” sign my friend gave me. My decor for the bedroom is basically the same as every other year. I like to keep my room the same and change out the decor in other areas of the house like the living room.
I’m really excited for my final semester and the memories it will bring. Thanks for stopping by!
Gotta have a first day of classes picture!
