The Thrifty College House

After a summer of decorating, crafting, and planning, the thrifty college house is complete. The goal was to transform an average, run down college house into somewhere where my best friend and I can study, relax, and escape from our crazy schedules. Without spending more than $35 on a single piece, we turned our boring little house into a cute, eclectic home that we love and can’t wait to share with our friends. Most importantly, we now have our own little niche where we can learn, grow, be inspired, and finish our last couple of years as Spartans.
