Some of you might be tired of hearing about the FOMO Factory, but I just have to share the last few rooms with you! Then it will be back to regular scheduled DIY’s and projects I swear!
I am so excited to share the rest of the photos with you today, but expecially excited to share the two bathrooms that I decorated in 2 days with the help of Spoonflower. Spoonflower was gracious enough to provide wallpaper for each of the two bathrooms at the FOMO Factory, and the difference it made in the space is just crazy! Let’s take a look at the finished product first, then I will show you how bad the bathrooms were before the whole process started!
Not bad right?! The bathrooms are unisex, but I wanted each to be different, so I started with this pink tropical wallpaper pattern for one and this blue and green tropical pattern for the other. The bathrooms already had tile up the walls, so I got enough wallpaper to cover the top portion of all the walls in both bathrooms. Thanks to Spoonflower for providing custom 5′ rolls that perfectly covered this length of wall.
Once the wallpaper was up, I used latex paint to paint the tiles pink and blue to coordinate with the wallpaper. Then I gave the tiles a 3 coats of polycrylic to seal them and keep them from scratching. Then I used a chalk paint on the floor and again sealed it with 3 coats of polycrylic. Once the surfaces were done, I swaped out the mirrors for two round gold edged ones I picked up at At Home and added a new industrial exposed light fixture from Home Depot.
Now, yes, these bathrooms may not be super well designed amazing spaces like you see on pinterest, but for a 2 day project (1 day for each bathroom), and a limited budget, I am amazed with the difference. Just look at the before photos!
Um, yeah. Pretty dramatic change if you ask me! It’s a testimate to what a little paint and wallpaper can do!
Now, let’s look at some more pretty pictures, shall we?!
Yesterday I left off with the dance room upstairs. Once you leave the dance, you head outside to the music room that hopefully plunges you into 80’s-90’s nostalgia with mixed tapes, song lyrics, a gradient palm leaf photobooth, and a pastel boombox.
Next, head down the confetti stairs into the playground filled with floral swings, a rainbow seesaw, giant rainbow pinwheels, hopscotch, free ice cream and popsciles, and a ceiling covered with one of the rainbow parachutes from gym class when you were a kid.
After the playground is Summer Vacation! Yay! And the last room of the FOMO Factory. Complete with a ball pit pool and pool floats, a giant sandcastle you can climb to the top of or inside of, and a bar full of Snapple so you can vacay all day. And don’t forget to pass the gift shop on the way out. It’s filled with all sorts of Kailo Chic goodies as well as some other items from local businesses like Luella and May Designs.
So there you have it! The whole Fomo Factory! And if you are feeling the FOMO, try to make your way to Austin so you can see it yourself and take all the pictures. We are open through October 21st, but tickets are selling fast! Head to thefomofactory.com to snag some for yourself.
