How to Repurpose Your College Student’s Old Bedroom

Although it may be sad to see your not-so-little-one leave the nest for dorm life, one perk of the change is that you now have extra space in your home. Instead of sitting around stewing about how your baby is all grown up, repurpose your college student’s old bedroom to create the space you’ve always wanted. Whether you want a peaceful yoga gym or a crafty art room, you can make a place that makes you forget about those empty nest blues.
