Paint Pouring

DIY Dorm Storage and Seating

I can never have enough storage.  I like having the ability to put things away in a tidy place that makes sense.  When I was a student (back in the day), I never had enough storage.  My stuff seemed to multiply as the semesters progressed.  The idea today is to create double duty storage that can be used in a…
