  • AMAZING 😉

  • I LOVE THE GLUE PILLOW IDEA CAUSE ITS FAST so stop complaining, Im glad I found this idea and dont get me wrong : I know how to sew... and fake plants : I love real.plants but its great to.have some fake aswell because they never die and if you have a cat (like me) he wont destroy your home forest like mine do regularly (still have my cat and real plants 😊) PEACE

  • " I made this out of dirt ", *wow really? That's so cool*

  • All I can find on this video is hate comments.. like keeps your rude opinions to your self, no one wants your negativity. Charlotte liked the room didn’t she? Yea she did. So leave and bring your negativity with you 🙄

  • Tacky

  • those curtains are from urban outfitters

  • I wish i could get help of someone in India....

  • Why are all the comments just talking about the pillow being glued instead of sewed, and the word "junky", like seriously people? At least they tried to help this girl to enjoy her room more even if they failed

  • framed dirt ahahah wtff

  • I thought it was smart to use fake plants and i loved the room, ( even if people think it's junky or tacky). what matters is that she liked it. :D And with all the negative comments, Lets agree to disagree! :) Edit: The char thing was a bit out of place~~

  • I don't why so many people are hating. It doesn't really matter what yall think. all that matters is that Charlotte liked it.

  • Why is everyone so harsh ?! It looks good ( ı agree with the neon sign ) But like NO NEED TO BE A BRAT ABOUT İT . Just say what you think and go . She did pretty well .

  • I really don't like th design I don't think personally anybody who's older than 16 would want orange bedsheets or neon lights-- thought the fairy lights and her table/desk was probably the best

  • 8:11 draw with Jazza outro!

  • The actual fuck

  • This is sooo cute

  • “Room divider” it’s literally a bedsheet on a shower pole.

  • if someone did a makeover to my room just from my personality my room would have black everything and pics of wolves...

  • Ugly

  • Please stop hot-glueing things that should be sewn

  • I don't know why people are disappointed it looks way better but then again im a cheap person....

  • It’s so hard to watch her being like “oh it’s so nice! I love it!” But she knows that it looks like shit and she just wasted 300 dollars

  • I really like the idea of the room divider. I live in a studio and I really want to have a divider between my mattress and living room. I can borrow your idea.

  • This was completely useless ..

  • Burred see talk

  • 3:04 , u can’t tell me she didn’t say, “D. A. Y.” instead of “D. I. Y.”. Also this video is a mess. You’re not gonna stay in your dorm forever. Why spend $300 on it tho? Like fr...

  • The before is still prettier than my room lol

  • Guys stop hating the things may look KIND of bad but it doesn't matter! I want to see you spend $300 on a room her room side isn't even that big, and if they bought everything the video would be super boring and it shows people how to make their own stuff and if you're gonna be rude SIGN OFF AND LEAVE

  • Omg, this is so tacky lol

  • tons of shit

  • She wanted plants, not some fake green shit. Jesus...

  • This reminds me of inside a gypsy room where people ask about their dark lives prophecy.

  • dim lighting = neon lights nice plants = fake plants pillow = hot glued t-shirt WHAT WAS SHE THINKING!?

  • Before= simple , After= complex

  • I love the DIY's, but the filming made me nauseous.

  • OK ppl! Negative Nancys please stand up...and leave. 😐 if I look at a sewing machine, it breaks. I can do a mean hand stitch (literally it's so bad it's mean) so hot glue is my friend. It's a dorm room! = temp-or-ary. Pillow laptop thingy, actually cool. Soft on legs, laptop heavy to hold it in place, cheap if you mess it up no guilt, etc etc.... The majority of money she spent was on stupid over priced "office" stuff at an actual store, so those of you who shop at Pier One (geez, even Target And Walmart these days)...just go balance your checkbook as I join this chick at the thrift store & FB Craigslist. This is "fast, easy, get the job done, anyone can do" stuff....because even in the age of Pinterest ideas and US-tv training, some stuff, plain and simple, Ain't nobody got time fo dat! * end of rant * * off to burn some fingerprints off with hot glue * * brain cells where burnt in this ranting, hence more US-tv searches of other ppl using their brain to give me ideas for fast, effective & affordable diy's * 😝 so there! 💗💗

  • Really? Copying The Sorry Girls much...

  • Why did she GLUE EVERYTHINg that's SO lazy

  • WHO GLUES PILLOWCASEs

  • Errr... no blankets?! XD And also, MR. KATE RIPPPOFFFFF!

  • The room would look beautiful if it would have been cleaned. If you bought some stuff organizers and arranged them in a proper way, the room would be more spaced up and neat. There was no need of using $300

  • ur awesome

  • Damn $300, poor Charlotte. It wasn’t an upgrade at all wtf.

  • still it looks dorn

  • Clearly she was trying to cover up her bedsheets, sometimes I want just a clean white bed, and she just completely ripped that away lol

  • I wonder what her roommate thinks 🤔🤔

  • i love this so much

  • does anyone know where she got those twinkle lights?! I can't find them anywhere!

  • I will never not find it weird that americans share a bedroom when living at university... whyyyyy

  • dirt...? fuck off buzzfeed 😂

  • You can get a lap desk at a cheaper price and prettier than that and not wasting a pillow.

  • The room divider is a cool idea...and the "Move that bus comment" right before the reveal was funny...lol

  • Her voice is darker than my depression

  • Candles next to the windows!!!! that's a fire waiting to be happen.

  • Wow! Very creative. ☺️

  • What a waste 5 minutes - I stopped at 5 minutes - really poor, bad, dumb ideas!

  • she is so annoying and she killed all the originality the original room had. she was also kind of a bitch about her original decor. i bet she throws out all those ugly ass pillows and that hideous sign and those ugly fake plants and candles.

  • The lights looks really charming

  • That’s not a bed, that’s a cot.

  • How old is that college freshman? 32?

  • Tiny dorm for two people. That was the size of the single dorms at my school.

  • Guys it’s buzzfeed nifty it’s supposed to be full of DIY’s if you’re complaining about that then you really don’t know the channel. Stop complaining about something that this channel is *supposed to do*

  • "after so much hard work" ...yea. hotglueing fabric instead of sewing it sure is hard work.. and 255 dollars for this makeover ? It actually feels like more clutter is added to that small dorm room.

  • I love it!😍😍

  • what i liked about this video is it’s not a video kinda makes us feel so poor and like ‘my room is smaller than her closet’ just like the other room decoration videos but...

  • Ummmm Mr Kate we need you

  • She looks like female sjw leafyishere

  • y'all are crazy thinking I got $300 to spend.

  • Fantastic pillows and where to find them

  • Awesome............

  • $100 maybe...if you're rich and fancy.... but spending $300? For a room you probably wont have anymore in a few months? That's what posters are for...

  • wow these comments are filled with hate. why not say wow she did a good job but I disagree with that or something along those lines. she did an great job and she has an amazing heart. stop spreading hate

  • Charlotte: I like dim lighting! *puts neon lights*

  • The video was alright but she began to read twilight?! That's NOT ACCEPTABLE!

  • I would rather have the “before”room...

  • I’m from Illinois. Should I use ranch for my state thing?

    • Lissa Blossom I’m from Australia so I have no idea what to use 😂

  • It was bothering me the whole time that she didn't make her bedsheet tight and right 🤯

  • Ur music is very annoying

  • Was I the only one who thought the curtain doesn't catch fire due to the candles near that😌

  • Since everyone thankfully mentioned the failed attempted of a personal neon sign, fake plants, and crappy laptop desk, let's talk about the use of the budget. They made such a big point on the savings for the DIY for items they couldn't paid the same price for or lessor a better item. Also, what thrift shop are they at, spending more than going to a dollar store or a regular store. The fabric above the desk in the bulletin board was too flashy and not the right size. The gold items on her desk and the book ends were too expensive, those could've been genuine DIYs. The concept on making your room nicer is there, just the budgeting and style choice wasn't.

  • This is the first makeover video which I don't like no disrespect to your hard work but so much unnecessary additional stuff pillow it will become more of a mess !

  • Where did you get the grid board from?

  • I honestly really like this and is pretty cheap ❤️

  • This is literally a walmart version of Mr. Kate. They didn't do anything she really wanted and just did stuff they wanted to do. If you want decoration on a budget go watch Mr. Kate.

  • I like the ideas but the realization of these diys is just sloppy. what if you need to wash the pillow case? you have to rip it and destroy it?

  • Charlyn's (sorry if I said it wrong) voice is similar like rclbeauty101

  • Wt ....I got let it go ad before the video 😂😂🤣🤣

  • I think that neon sign may be a bit of a fail ...

  • What are you paying for? I’d much rather pay 50 for this junk deal

  • Lol when it said dim light dim is my name

  • Who has that kind of money??

  • Her money & video watching time are waisted.

  • Talk too much dear.

  • This is just my opinion but instead of using some DIYs I’m sure you could have gotten better things by buying it for about $250-$350. No hate though.

  • It's Not Difficult To Water A Plant Sorry just every uni room video I watch had fake plants and its just. Get a real plant.

  • Ok she is talented and creative but i dont like her taste

  • tbh I think that girl threw away everything afterwards

  • Tacky.

  • We all know she got that dirt outside

  • No hate but, why would you be so cheap when doing something nice for someone? Thrift store, seriously... go to IKEA. You made a damn pillow out of a worn shirt. Whether it was clean or not, not cool and pretty gross. When I saw "Dorm Makeover", I thought IKEA, B.B.B. , ya' know? Not "I'm cheap so I gave her my old crap and thrift store junk... just saying. .-.
