Lindsey Goodson and Abby Bozeman settled into their freshman dorm at Ole Miss just like thousands of other college students. While others struggled to make themselves at home, Goodson and Bozeman decided to turn their room into the equivalent of a luxurious palace. Take a look for yourselves.
The duo connected on social media in October and began discussing decor ideas in December. They told Buzzfeed News that they weren't entirely sure if their plans would come together well, but were very surprised by the amazing results.
Here's their college dorm before:
And here it is after:
Seriously, the room is the epitome of perfection and is giving students around the country some major dorm room goals. Though it might appear as though the girls spent a fortune on all the intricate details, instead, they relied mostly on bargain shopping and A LOT of DIY. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Goodman said:
"Abby found the dresser at an antique shop and had it repainted and added some crystal knobs (from Home Depot). The curtain on the dresser is a hand towel my mom found at TJ Maxx and made into a little cafe curtain (it covers paper plates & such). I also found the lamps at Hobby Lobby on clearance and the stools from Home Goods (which I hot glued some velvet ribbon on),"
After Goodson shared the image on Twitter, her post went viral, garnering over 3,000 retweets. She ended up making her Twitter private because of all the attention. "Most of the media attention has been extremely flattering and we have been so surprised and thankful for the response," Goodman said. "We didn't at all expect this, I just figured a few friends from home would see my picture on Twitter, not thousands from all over the country!"
