Can You Keep Decorating If Your Money Is All Gone?

You can if you decorate college dorm style. I found this article via The New York Times about some very creative college students and their cheap decorating tricks. The two photos above are so cool, I would be willing to pay good money to copy the look. But they are both assembled from found pieces! Times being what they are, I guess we are all going to have to get creative.

as I was oooohh'ing and aaahhh'ing over that aqua table I realized that I have a very similar one next to my bed. Now, I HAVE to paint it aqua!

Thanks for sharing.

Very creative - I love it! The good news with creative decorating like this is that you can be "green" doing it. There is an upside!

Love it! I have often felt like I'm more creative when I have to be.

Very clever- little bit of creativity and the results are great.

Oh dear, I did the exact same post today! Same photo, same thoughts. I didn't steal your idea though, even if it looks a bit like I did.
Funny... =)

Leen: Lucky! I am obsessed w/ that aqua color.

MDS, ADTID, viera: A little pressure never hurts. It is a great motivator for creativity.

Kiersten and Deco Detective: Don't worry about posting the same pictures. I found them on someone else's site, who posted them before I did. Hey, they're great photos!

BMommy: I studied design in college and can't say my room was this creative. Oh well! Thanks for commenting.

Phil: I totally agree w/ you.
