    Fantastic post. His dorm looks great. Best of luck to your son (and to you as you adjust to your new normal:)

    1. Thanks, Kristin! It will definitely take some time to get used to. He’s always been my sidekick and buddy and I miss him terribly.

  2. You both did great! You, for your love and care and decor sense; him, for his patience and confidence in you to make this transition meaningful and memorable.

    1. Thank you Meredith. He always lets me do my thing 😉

    1. Thanks Marty. He’s getting there. It’s been a bit of a tough adjustment for him as well.

  3. Thinking of you – I know it’s hard to let them go! The only thing that my son would allow me to do to his dorm room was to make the bed, lol! He really didn’t care about decor, but he was in a small room with two other guys, so there wasn’t much room for decorating anyway. I shudder to think what the room looked like during those years. I did the ugly cry when I left, but we both survived:).

    1. Wow 3 boys in a small room is a lot. I don’t really want to see how dirty his will get LOL. He’s definitely not big on cleaning.

  4. His room looks awesome and I am so impressed that they get their own bathroom! I never had that in college!!!

    1. Looks great – and not too over done. I see some of these girls’ rooms and it’s soo over the top (but also awesome). I like how your son’s side worked out well with his roommate too. I’m sure he’ll have a great year!

      1. Looks great and so nice to have your own bathroom.

        1. Thanks Donna, that is definitely nice. I couldn’t believe that there are two bathrooms. One shower bathroom and one toilet which is impressive.

      2. Thanks Becky! My friend’s daughter’s dorm that I linked to in my blog post is definitely one of those super impressive dorm rooms. My jaw dropped how awesome it is.

    2. Yes that is pretty impressive haha!

  5. How are the cats adjusting without him?

    1. They are doing well they mostly follow me around but my son misses them a lot.

  6. This is great! You optimized the space better than we did! Coincidentally, my son moved into the same dorm on Tuesday!! Wishing your son a fabulous year!

    1. Hi Jackie, oh what a coincidence!!! How is he liking it so far? Mine is having a bit of a hard time adjusting. Hopefully the start of classes today will help.

    I think my daughter is in the same dorm. She practically kicked us out so I have no idea what her dorm actually looks like. She is loving it so far. Hope he is too.

    1. Oh really?!?! What a coincidence. Mine has mixed feelings. I can’t say he is loving it so far. It’s been a bit of a tough adjustment to find new friends. Hopefully, the start of classes will help this week.

  8. Hi!
    Thank you for posting this — it’s super helpful. I’m wondering about the desk and dresser measurements. We bought a metal shelf and just wanted to make sure it will fit either over the dresser or desk. Would you say the width of the dresser is about the same as the bed? How about he desk?

    Thank you so much!

    1. Hmmmm I’m not exactly sure if the dresser is the exact same size as the width of the bed but I believe it was close. The desk is wider than the bed though.

  9. Thank you so much! It looks like we will not be able to put the dresser underneath the bed if that’s the highest the bed will go.
