Hey. Welcome to Ole Miss. (upbeat music) I posted a Tweet in hopes that my friends from home would see it, I’m from Illinois. So I guess it just, from there, a lot of people were re-tweeting it and favoriting it. I mean, the before picture just looked really bad. It was like our dads moving the beds. Comfort is really important to, I think, both of us. We like laying in the beds, so. I remember, whenever we walked in, I felt like I was going to cry. Yeah, the dorm mattress. Once we got blankets, pillows, the headboards definitely helped because they cover up a lot of the cinder block. So the desk came with the room. These little wood grain guys. Yeah, and we had those built. The mirrors were awash because it made the whole room look a lot bigger and the whole thing just adds height. It was important to us to have a living space because again it makes it feel more homey and it gives you more places to sit in this small room. I mean where are you friends supposed to sit? On the best with you? No. The rebel letters, they’re all command stripped to the wall. We didn’t put any holes in the walls at all. It is against the rules to put holes in the wall and I am a rule follower so I was team command strips. Well my mom and I found this in an antique store and its original color like dark brown. It had like, I think, two drawers but it was missing one so we just had it completely just cleaned out and we repainted it, made a world of difference, and got new knobs. We put a lot of our food and stuff in the drawer. This is a dish towel. That’s a good way to make everything look neat because you don’t want junk cluttered. My mom and I found the ottomans. They were just the plain burlap type color but then we put a little bit of ribbon on it and it makes it cute and honestly the most important part, is that. Put shoes in it. Yeah, like while we had these here, I mean, of course to help us get on the bed but we need somewhere to put shoes. I think that like style and like how you present yourself, your living space, is a reflection of who you are which sometimes mine’s messy, sometimes I’m messy. I mean that makes sense. Sometimes. All the time, I’m messy. I actually thought about being an interior designer but I feel like it’s just a skill we just acquired from our moms. Girls have been messaging us on social media asking us if we’ll help them- Which for sure. With their dorms. I would encourage please message me. (upbeat music)
