They will be as good as the care you take to assemble and install them properly. In some
cases you may need to use different screws or add some good wood glue. The last time I assembled an IKEA dresser, 1 or 2 holes weren't drilled quite correctly, and I had to make some adjustments. But if you're patient you will enjoy the results.
How can I convince her to give me my PURPLE room?!?!?!?!

I agree, maybe she'll go for one wall, if you promise you will repaint it when you move out or
if the house goes up for sale. Why don't you buy a few yards of purple fabric? Hang some from the wall, make drapes and a duvet. A little purple goes a long way. My mom wouldn't let me paint my room red, but my shelves were painted red.
