Going away to college and living on your own for the first time can be intimidating: not only are you in a new place, you're most likely sharing your address with new people, too. The cramped quarters of a typical dorm room, with its shabby carpeting and bare walls, don't feel very welcoming, either. But there's still a lot to be excited about! A blank space means that you can create your own comforts, like displaying pictures of your friends and family and putting up some art. Tap into a DIY mindset and use these 15 projects to turn your dorm into a destination. From a decorative memo board and a colorful bookshelf to a comfy seat and a chic window shade, your new digs may just become your favorite place on campus.
