Welcome: Dream Bedroom Makeover
Description: Using ratios and proportions to create a scale drawing, you get to create the bedroom of your dreams. For this project, imagine you also get two new roommates! Since you're all growing up, you can do away with your Sponge Bob and Dora the Explorer decorations (if you choose) and start fresh with cool new stuff. Before you and your roommates put your dream in the drawing, you each have $2000 to shop online for items to put in your room. If you're dreaming big, make sure you get the best deals! You will then make some final decisions with your roommates to decide what items will make the final cut to go into your room.
