our last makeover in this studio

our last makeover in this studio
guys Pinterest algorithm is next-level amazing we should all be bowing down to Pinterest it's time for my fresh stone is that right I'm getting superstructure they need to leave down hi everyone and welcome to another black the

last

sorry girls video of the entire year hope you guys had a great Christmas my name is Kelsey and today we're doing an exciting video because new year new us new backdrop you guys know it's the thing that we redo the backdrops in our space from time to
our last makeover in this studio
time

this

is a collection of what they've looked like throughout the years so that is still finishing up a DIY right now you know getting in those

last

DIYs before the holidays come so I'm gonna tackle

this

she gave me kind of free reign to do some stuff oh wow oh girl so I'm I think my first step is to measure

this

out and kind of think up a plan searching some measurements of our backdrop and I thought about the plan and I think

this

time we're gonna go with more of a wall
paper route or at least that's the goal the issue with

this

goal is that it's hard to get wall paper in one day and also because it is such a short backdrop the repeating pattern has to happen a lot like you can't do a really big image because you're gonna be wasting so much wall paper so it has to be kind of like a finer pattern which makes things a little bit more difficult but I'm gonna head out to some wallpaper stores and hardware stores to see what my wallpaper options
are and you may be wondering well why is it going to be the

last

backdrop that you're ever redoing and well folks it's because in 2020 we're quitting YouTube no it's because in 2020 we want to move offices hopefully we will not have the same setup I'm sure some things will come from our office but ultimately we want to hold a new set up we can do another video later or maybe subscribe to The Blob channel if you haven't already if you want to learn more about why we need
to move offices but we've been on the lookout for a while now for new offices it has to happen in 2020 because team too big a que team sorry girls is team too big stop one nope they said I get over online on our way to store number two there's the thing for wallpaper okay thank you so there's

this

faux brick which we could paint makes look kind of cool oh no but it says it's pretty pasted I honestly have never put up wallpaper so I don't know what that means you just add
water alright we're gonna have lots of options here just do they have anything in I just stick on wallpaper if you have it so I texted the team I was in there and they all liked the pom and I was super into the palm I know it's gonna be January and it's not very January themed but I do think it's very trendy and that's not where I want to go but right now I'm going to an art store because I don't pick up some gold paint that I can use those accents on

this

back wall
hopefully potentially okay wallpaper check gold paint check didn't gonna head back to the office now to start getting

this

up on our backdrop and see how it looks I do we definitely need some more elements I don't think the wallpapers gonna be enough but I almost want to see it before I figure out what the next plan is okay so I'm back with my wallpaper so I ended up doing two rolls just because of the pattern repetition I'm gonna see if I could do it without breaking into the
second roll because that would just be clutch but let's get started with taking everything off the board and start putting up our wallpaper here I can't believe I have to take

this

out because it was slightly difficult to put in no it was kind of not so recent and also when

this

video goes up yeah it'll be like the end of the year so it's time for my fresh start so what I've learned in my wallpapering days is that you should probably start in the middle like I don't know
just in case you run out or something happens I feel like when you start out it's usually the best chances of success so you kind of want to start out where you're going to see the most there you bring a ruler that is right hopefully looks good hi I'm my background it's like blurry - wow the funny thing is that in January

last

year Clary did the backdrop while I was in Bali and now I'm redoing the backdrop without Becky and I basically brought Bali to there so that was
extremely easy we didn't have to get into the second role which means that we just saved a lot of money we

this

is literally half the price now and I think it looks so good it went up so easily and I don't have the pegboard five anymore which is okay because we were rocking that pig board for a long time so now I think the goal is to find a style that works with palm print because I just don't speaking of Bali I don't want to look too just like full-on tropical Bali vibes cuz
our last makeover in this studio
that's totally a vibe and I totally love it but I think there's also another way to do palm prints so let's go look at some info so I feel like

this

is what we don't want to do which is add a bunch of like wicker and tropical colors to it there's some interesting vibes in here as far as like mid-century modern and gold we do have the light bamboo it's not bamboo but it's a light color of the wood so that kind of sets a tone for us but I mean yeah you don't have to
have palm prints and it doesn't have to make everything a tropical seam that is what I'm learning here like

this

is a really cute vibe and it's like gold faux fur doesn't scream tropical at all oh my gosh how long do some black Jones with it I don't want to do too much gold I did buy gold paint it kind of be interesting to do like a mirror or something black alleys like you can't do a mirror because you're gonna see it in every single shot ever like when you're on
film sets and stuff they like put

this

frosting stuff on the mirror so it's not a true mirror it just like has

this

like vibe like a mirror it could be interesting yeah oh my gosh I love it with the black I think that looks so smart what if we black paper problem is that our countertop matches are the wood on the backdrop so you kinda want that to match okay I think we're gonna put fabric on her backdrop is that crazy oh my gosh she's greatly made

this

black vinyl and just based on
the insole pick that I just think that black would look so good with it do it okay better the hell you put what we'd have to staple gun it in topically honestly those edges already messed

this

one like what you say she's like did you do there would be a seam here she's done the photo know what surprise her and then do we do the Rose driver with black I think I'll just be

this

not grounds already busy in that yeah so let's do

this

drawer and then see if that work okay so it
looks like

this

is working with our stapler here hopefully it kind of like deep wrinkles itself I tried ironing it quickly but it didn't really work I think that was some time is having it stressed out that it will be wrinkled but it's getting really late it's like fully dark outside now so I am going to go home and finish

this

tomorrow Becky's not in the office in the morning so that means that it'll be a surprise when I show her on Monday see you tomorrow okay it's time
to finish

this

bread shop okay so the vinyl is down there and if you guys are wondering why we're using vinyl and not more of

this

sticky wallpaper because there is lots of kind of black contact paper and even at the store where we got

this

wallpaper or where I got there was a black version I think like a chalkboard version but we actually had

this

vinyl it was like a hand-me-down craft supply so I decided to use it like at first I was just like oh

this

is just a way to cover

this

but I feel
like it gives a cool kind of like embroidery vibe and obviously different textures add more to a space so I'm into it so now it's trying to figure out what else to add to

this

just because I feel like it's probably a little too plain as it so low-key

this

is the hard part my thoughts are adding things like gold a mustard color and then also kind of like a rosy pink would be really nice especially we have like a rosy pink couch over here and lots of plants so I think I'm gonna see
if there's a way where I can incorporate that stuff over here I think

this

DIY would look really good back here with the gold pandals I just don't know if the purple leaf is like too much okay so I have

this

hanging plant up here I think I'm gonna switch out the plant for something a little bit more trailing and a little bit more green but we also have these books just hanging out in the back and I think the vibe is starting to come together I think the goal is to kind of do
something that's like an eclectic vibe like classy eclectic so I'm gonna style

this

as if it was like a credenza in your house or something like that or like shelving in your house so I mean I try honestly Becky is better at styling than I am I would say like when it comes to shelves and stuff but I'm gonna give it a whirl I think I'm gonna head out to the thrift store to see if I can find certain things like an ornate meet oh I've been wanting to do like a mere or something
our last makeover in this studio
but obviously that's difficult for filming because of the reflection but maybe just like an ornate frame and you just like take out the things in the middle and it's just like too ornate frames like stacked here that are gold to bring in the gold maybe some like more book lots of plan coming together before we go to the thirst or let's see what we can steal from around the office here I know there's like oh yeah

this

is gonna be good cute anything else up here ooh maybe

this

garland salvaged your Christmas decor okay hmm okay

this

light would would clash with the vibe cuz I was trying to go away from the whole like light beachy Bali vibe but let's try it cuz it's cute also these oranges are looking really good if you guys haven't seen that that was for eco-friendly wrapping like throw it up there something okay

this

is kind of like where we keep misc decor and stuff like these are cute I just think I don't want terracotta so I like to paint B but we
have interesting I really want something that's like rose pink but these are possibilities to paint okay shadow if you guys remember

this

baskets room so

this

is an old old DIY lose some more crystals yeah these are gonna go out there for sure about building a vibe I think we need more stacking things for these books look great okay maybe I will repot

this

some of these Jade guys are all did close those I feel like pothos are more resilient in that kind of pot and that I like sir sorry so I
think my goal for the surf sort is to find a pot that is either pink or that I can paint pink for some extra plants maybe some more books that are on color scheme as well as maybe picture frames that are either gold or they can paint gold that are kind of like ornate and cool that would look good without art in them because I don't want to be like too distracting oh my god I hate it honestly I find it very hard to find cute pots here but listen good stuff today we're now looking for boxy
things that can be stacked because I feel like we have a decent amount like little items I found these speakers I don't know if they're really cool or really hideous but I think it's $6.99 for both speakers and POW know it could be a cool vibe I picked up a record as well I don't know trying something trying something and getting super structure they need to leave now

this

is bad the sorceress bad for me back from Dexter you saw most of what I got here actually kind of what it
was inspiring the vibe is

this

chair was just kind of like chilling here as I was making over the backdrop and I really love the brown tone with it so I was like well let's see if we can fight brown tones cool try to put it on either side like it's a like bookends yeah like

this

was your entranceway and you had a speaker little stereos hooked up to everything okay interesting let's see what else I got so a book hack if you didn't know it and you guys can come for us as much as
you want about using books as like decor but they were at the thrift store they were literally like two or three dollars each and I think that they're kids so a hack is to take off the jacket the saw joke big book jacket I'm like the stock cover of the hardcover so I was like at the thrift store peeling back all these covers seeing if they look cute underneath you know every object has a story ain't it true okay and then we're just gonna be like a whole layering moment in here
what else yeah I got some yellow and that pops the yellow could be cool

this

one actually looks like fun book do you know

this

book no but it looks wrong man I like the cover art but I also like the under cover are I had

this

in my car and I was like actually can I leave it and she was like five four books get one free and I was like I guess I'm getting it then it's green it has the green vibes fun fact my nickname in high school used to be Mackay slash elementary school because my

last

name McDermott Mackay I didn't felt like

this

though I saw somebody do

this

garland DIY that we did and they did tassels on the ends instead of just like little hoops I love that so if you guys are working on a DIY of

this

Garland I would encourage you to do tassels cuz it was so cute okay what else do we have to do here I picked up two planters they're both very cute the other problem is

this

one has a chip honest I'd have to fix that I was about Candlestick do we sell pillar
candles oh that's awkward isn't it

this

one can stay white potentially but I definitely want to paint one rose and I pulled out the rose color paint so that could look like it oh and yes the result ritzy staff so I got these two frames which ones already kind of gold but I think it can be go over it a little bit and I just wanted them as like a layering moment I either need to do some simple art for it or just take out definitely take out the boss because it's reflective and
that's not gonna be helpful when we're filming and I need to put just like a white background and do like very simple art bar like my other idea was to do just the frames but looking at it now I feel like I might want to have something in the frames just so it breaks up the backdrop a little bit that's the whole point here

this

is a very busy backdrop I want to break it up hi guys it is Monday and it's time to finish

this

backdrop here Becky's not in the office yet so
it's still a surprise I brought in my hats from home to see if one or both or whatever works dad's like yeah okay and then also we have the picture frame inserts cutout which maybe they'll be Becky's contribution she can help me with the art but I guess I'm gonna what I need to do I there's like more elements that I need to do here did you film yourself painting these Ally yeah sick just Warnock oh yeah and then we have the pink oh yeah that's good right that's
why I was like I need to go out of my way and get

this

gold paint cuz it's so good okay yes what's the vibe okay okay okay somebody just walked in and she did help me pick out the wallpaper because I texted when I was at the store between different wallpaper options but other than that she doesn't know she doesn't know what we stapled to it Yeah right hi if you have a good weekend yeah yeah hold on I'm gonna get in position for the review yeah do it come on Becky tells me if
I wanted to run my own sounds like episode okay I know I brought it to style me up here for height you know yeah what is

this

those are speakers I found it the third star more speakers you could put plants in here

this

cute yeah Wow tubs b-but oh yeah you helped me finish it I think if we do something it has to be simple so it's sensitive I know I know that was my thought writing is really good okay thank you but yeah yeah okay we're gonna do some sort of like they usually watercolor on

this

and then do a color over top so I guess I'll start with

this

this

is just for audio so that it matches everything else so or is it a fun two camera angle okay you do that on purpose so they can't use it yep all right that my friends was the

last

I feel like I shouldn't be standing here it's like when you copy someone's homework you take credit for it like best troop thanks for watching my tutorial on how to make

this

awesome background happen that is true I mean you
helped in spirit you helps with the art at the end I asked if we liked brick or pom and you were like mom that's true it could have been an entirely different video if it weren't for me and that one decision so you did I told you what to write the paper on and you wrote it for me thank you guys for watching
