The lovely Michelle from Iron & Twine is back today, to share her fave dorm room decor ideas with us! So without further ado…
So happy to be here today and share an easy and affordable dorm room DIY! All too often dorm rooms are bare and boring and to make things worse, you can’t paint, drill or nail into any walls, leaving the space with something to be desired. To give your walls an artful display (while abiding by the rules) use decorative washi tape, gift wrap and personal touches; taking your space from generic to top of the class!
For this gallery wall, washi tape is used both functionally and decoratively. I purchased all three decorative tapes from Paper Source, the gold glitter found here, the gold dot here and the blue and white stripe fabric tape is this brand.
Display favorite quotes and recent instagram pics (I simply printed mine at home on watercolor paper), then frame them out with washi tape or create a mini banner. For cheap and pretty art, use wrapping paper (this is also perfect for lining book shelves or to use as wallpaper). I chose this Mint Floral Wrapping Paper for a feminine-anthro vibe.
Have fun customizing a gallery wall that’s personal to you while adding some personality to your dorm room!
We love this idea, Michelle! Be sure to visit her at Iron & Twine for some fabulous inspiration… did we mention she’s expecting twins?!?!!

Um, I’m so doing this in my daughters room! This is adorable!
What a wonderful idea! My daughter starts school in the fall – go Dawgs! – and she will be living in the dorms there. We will be sharing this with her and her roommate!
Oooooh! Love those sources! Thanks for that. 😀
