So you’ve gone back to school and spent all your summer money on textbooks, clothes and shoes, and now pretty much have no budget to decorate your dorm. Don’t worry, we’ve got this inexpensive and colorful DIY to turn your tiny room into a space that feels like home!


– A4 white paper (or other thick card stock)

– printable motivational poster (download here in three different shades)


1. Print the poster on your sheet of paper (go for card stock for professional results)

2. Frame your poster or hang it on the wall using a piece of washi tape.

Once you’ve printed your colorful poster in one of the three shades available, hang it on the wall or frame it. Then display all you favorite colorful notebooks and add some greenery. Voilà! You’ve got a brand new space where everyone will want to hang out.
