LaurDIY and Alex Wassabi’s Epic Two-Tone Room Makeover!


Alright. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. No I’m I’m Joey, this is the plan. Yeah, but go up on the ceiling. I can’t reach it That’s why you have the pole You want me to lift you up? No I don’t wanna It scares me No, no. But it scares me Joey No, no, no I’m top heavy I’m top heavy. No no Joey I don’t wanna do that no Can’t wait to decorate. There’s so much, we can make How will it turn out? OMG, We’re Coming Over! Open up, we’re here Okay, you’re yelling like so loud. Oh my god. You guys. You guys Creative weirdos, welcome! We’re 2 million+ strong and guess what we’re about to do today 2018. OMG, We’re Coming Over starts again with LaurDIY and Alex Wassabi. Laurex! They share an office. We’re gonna tackle that, but it’s gonna be a crazy office. You guys, this is one of the riskiest…most wild designs that we’ve done If you guys aren’t already subscribed, make sure to hit that subscribe button Yes Thumbs up the video…now Because it’s gonna be good guys It’s gonna be great. We’re taking so many chances. We’re breaking so many design rules. I have on my fun lashes My, my beauty marks. Joey, got his fun lashes are always fun. He’s naturally fun Let’s go mine are fake, you guys ready, let’s do it Yeahhh I’m so excited and nervous This way Hi guys! I’m Lauren or LaurDIY better known on the Youtubes and I am a DIY and lifestyle vlogger/youtuber aaannndddd I just bought this beautiful house. And I am the taller half of Laurex. I’m Alex Wassabi and I run the channel Wassabi Productions. I do daily vlogs every day and uh, I can’t wait to have a place to do the daily vlogs at. Alright. Yes, this is it! So, it’s an empty room we’re looking at Yeah. So, it used to be a dining room that’s how the previous owners had it staged, but it’s just like so light and airy and i feel like it’d just be so much better as a workspace. And so since Alex is always here, I figured if we split it right in half. I get my half, he gets his half. So this is my house on paper. My house. But because Alex is always here and we work a lot together, I figured that would only be fair to give him a little bit of workspace here so I have generously given him 50% of the office. I feel like I should have probably been like a 70/30 type of split. Type of deal but – whoa But, um, I love you, so we’ll go 50/50 But we have a lot to do to infuse some personality in here because right now it is white walls Clean floor and a very odd kind of gothic looking Chandelier Got some beautiful molding on the wall. What’s your favorite part of the room Alex? I don’t even know, what part is the molding? Is that the like, outline thing? Oh, okay okay, I thought molding was like a bad thing. It’s like, oh no you have molding. So your style on one side, his style on the other side. Yes, please All right guys this is the 50-50 project, right down the middle, equal sides. I think, we can pull it off. Let’s try, shall we? Okay. So, what is your style? So I’m like, colorful and boho. Like watercolor Um Like plants fun stuff like that. I’d say Alex is like… manly, playful I love that! Him in a nutshell I want to be able to bring my basketball friends over and be like, Oh check it out, and they’re not gonna be like which side is yours. Kind of true to form with a lot of people that we work with. The lady, in the relationship has a lot of opinions about her style. She knows what she likes, she knows what color she likes, etc And then the dude, Alex, in this situation Is like just not pink. all right well I think that project 50/50 can start then Star now!

Okay, now let’s get back to the Laurex design Paint color reveal, oh, my, gosh, my favorite splash most nerve-wracking ohhhh, its turquoise I heard someone told me your favorite color is turquoise So this is a mature version, of that Alex seems a little hesitant about this color he’s kind of like, oh? How, do you feel, about the pink coat are you, nervous he’s, like, you’re a little nervous i’m not nervous Yes, i’m not nervy, a little nervous, no i think it’ll Be fine it’s just paint color and it’s gonna tie in and i know it’s, gonna be. Have trust in Mr.Kate I got trust in Mr.Kate. Have trust in Mr.Kate, yeah I’m thinking boys vs girls Boys vs Girls Although I designed both sides of the room but, still yeah Shake your hand this is an Alex and Joey world and you guys aren’t invited Honestly Kate and LaurDIY world like, you can’t get on our level Do you have a favorite color? I’d say pink yeah, mine too Wow, don’t even get there wow not even think. We were so much more efficient. You can put a little more flavor into it He said i could Alex is got some creative techniques Although in the 1920s, little boys use to wear pink Really? and girls wore blue I know…You guys need to talk less. You’re taking so long Art takes time Joey! Yeah Joey! You know i i think I’m done painting Joey’s got this and I have two projects To do with Lauren. Lauren let’s go. Yes I can paint While you go DIY. Can you do a little bit more paint before you leave for the DIY baby? yeah Now it’s boyfriend vs boyfriend, ohh? Is it now? Are you guys boyfriends already? No, i mean like we’re their boyfriends I mean I technically I’m Kate’s husband technically. They’re already lovers Well this is great they can paint together While Lauren and i go do some DIY Okay, yeah it’s happening i can’t believe we’ve never DIY’d together it’s taken too long for us to get to this point We both have done DIY thing on youtube for many years so this is a magical day that We are finally coming together to collab and DIY together I can’t believe it hasn’t happened, before I’m so Excited to see what she comes up with iIm pretty, sure that Mr.Kate’s my spirit animal she’s like design queen, and I’m like, like, glue queen she’s what you’re gonna, evolve into, she’s mine yeah, she’s my next Pokemon evolution, whoaaa All right so this is actually one of the things we’re gonna DIY this beautiful cotton, throw, and then Oh My God so I found this amazing ceramic cactus it’s a very muted Kind of greenish tone? And that is just not what we’re going for in here we really want fun and pops of color so i have some paints on hand here a bunch of different colors so the idea, is paint this mm-hmm like I have a ton of colors here We could paint it all solid then Do, like polk a dots or whatever literally up to you this is where you can just be your creative queen self and then, we have these fun faux flowers on hand which you know cactuses and have flowers and so yeah we could put it you know one big Wherever and then this guy, I thought it would be really fun to have the element of splatter paint, oh my god, yeah, so I thought, we could just lay, this down, and then then take all the colors and just splatter it up Okay, I’ve definitely splatter painted i definitely had a phase where there was actually, my favorite pair of Jeans that I had splatter painted lime, green, blue And white in grade 9 and I feel like splatter painting is back and it’s cool, again I’m so excited about it. Dunkie Oh man I haven’t done a splatter in a really long time And we’re like standing far away I know I’m like, we don’t get splattered, the long arm splatter technique Cute, oh, my gosh I love. I’m a huge fan I love this blue This is a great project You could upcycle a throw blanket that you’re sick of or you could get an inexpensive one so We just have to let it dry, and we’ll do the other side and splatter paint throw blanket. Check so let’s let, this dry, and bring the cactus back on. Cactus I feel, like I actually put a cactus in my mood, board like it was so specific I was like cactuses are cool And I want. Don’t you have multiple cactuses at your old apartment, yeah yeah and have you been DIYing since you were a wee one? Oh, yeah I came out of the womb with like a paintbrush and like a it’s like I’m here to DIY Cacti, have a kind of southwestern flair but if you look at the bohemian Style nowadays you really see a lot of those elements so we are combining styles to give it a Bohemian, look, and this cactus, is perfect. For that because, we can, do whatever, we want with the color palette Oh noooooo Is that bad? Take it off with your finger. Oh Okay, so the coat of pink paint is dry and she wants to do like a triangle on the bottom Which i love, that idea, again it’s kind of playing with the southwestern vibe what’s your favorite like medium to work with That’s a more advanced question not what’s your favorite DIY, that’s like an exciting question I say watercolor paints or mod podge Is that random? noooo. But I feel like there’s so much you can do You can, do so much with, mod podge it’s crazy, the yellow Looks, amazing, we’ll definitely need another coat cuz it is a pale yellow going, over that really bright pink but, we’ll let, that dry We’ll do another coat and now we’re gluing on the flowers. I think big guy, goes here right so let’s just, do that let’s just glue that one Lets commit to it it looks so cute it’s like a little hat it’s like a cactus Going to the kentucky Derby that is an advanced move right there i would like everyone to note the squeen just inverted the bottom of the the plastic flower so that it will nestle around the top Advanced move advanced DIY move. Cute So cute, we should go, check on the boys I forgot about the boys The, boyfriends are like the boys in their, own, oh, my, gosh I’m I’m a little bit scared I really, am I’m a little nervous, yeah, okay Wait Alex. Yes? Dude you painted on the ceiling Your not suppose to do that? Alex You, said paint this half of the room so I did what you said so technically this is our fault I can’t control where my artistic abilities take me. I feel like it’s probably, going, that’s not be the ceiling. I mean here’s the great thing we were already planning on painting the ceiling but, now i’ve sort of turned it on to him like it’s his fault that he painted on the ceiling so if they don’t like how the ceiling painting looks, his fault uhh Hellooo Hi, oh oh oh oh oh I thought that was suppose to happen. I mean its ok its ok Well it looks like Alex kind of made the decision for us to paint the ceiling now we’re fully committed because there’s blue paint already on the ceiling. I feel like you guys are making me look like I don’t know anything about interior design. Ahhhhh Oh my gosh. Alex is eating paint I gotta get it off Hang on hang on. Don’t come back though. Your gone for the rest of the day Yeah. Joey Joey Stoppp Tell me how paint got in your mouth What Tell me why this happens, every time, there’s some kind of like toxic liquid or substance in the room. It’s not my fault they chose the color that’s the color of cotton candy they should have thought ahead. I’ve already been stressed out about this project and now, someone’s ingested paint omg tip guys Don’t eat paint. They kicked us out and we’re alittle bit nervous It’s like 50% torture 50% nervousness but a hundred percent excitedness. That’s 200% I made him think that he messed up on the ceiling I didn’t tell him that that was actually what we’re doing Yeah, we’re committed to it now Because there’s actually paint on the ceiling yeah, well, we have a lot, we have to get that tape line so perfect. We got to get down to business now we’ve kicked him out let’s get that tape, line, super straight. Okay so the key here because, we have the symmetry of door door you know. This room can be split literally down the middle yeah that’s what we’re doing so, we need a really clean tape line down this wall cross the ceiling and then down over that door. So the key with doing this two-tone room, is making sure that, we first paint the pink kind of overlapping that line. So that we know that it’s fully covered because we need, to be able to tape on to the pink to then do the blue and then, we can use the laser level to get a perfectly clean line with some really high-quality painters tape and we’re also gonna do the trick where we paint over the painters tape with the pink color so in case any bleeds, we have that nice clean line Ultimate Joey two rolls Oh god this doesn’t really work too well Okay, Joey two rolls has met his match it’s called a ceiling. Alright so on the pink wall We left the insides of the molding bare because we’re actually gonna do a really cool thing, where we’re putting wallpaper on those squares. So because we have these molding panels we’re going to paint Alex’s side all the way over it’s gonna be a much more monochromatic look, it’s really gonna highlight the color of the paint and then on Laurens side we’re embracing those molding panels and we’re going to put wall paper on the inside of them, she doesn’t know yet. It’s gonna look so good and it’s watercolor and i painted it and then, we blew it up anyways We made it to custom wallpaper, you guys are gonna see it. Its gonna look so cool. Oh my gosh. I love that we did textured paper cuz it’s like, yeah it looks like watercolor paper . So the way we did this is I painted on a big piece of paper watercolor the different colors the orange, the yellow, the pinks and then Joey scanned it in and we made it into a mural that we ordered from a custom wallpaper company. So there’s no repeats it’s all gonna be a completely unique look, between the panels i basically would be a giant wall It’ll be a mural we’re just dividing it up between the panels. We’re just over achieving. It’s gonna be so cool. Okay, we need to get the wallpaper glue. Alright so basically how you get the wallpaper on the wall is we primed the squares because you’re not really gluing it to the wall you’re gluing it to the primer you get the wallpaper nice and soaked with the glue put it on the wall you take your squeegee get it all flat and into the corners and then we’re gonna go with the razor blade, and get it trimmed perfectly. Alright guys it is time to find out if our straight-line technique Worked or failed ahhh It look sooo coool YAY It’s straight it’s clean there’s no bleeds that trick works so well If you need to ever split a room in half with two colors This is the way to do it HAA The light fixture that’s already in this room is not gonna work for the design it’s actually kind of scary it’s a little gothic So we’re gonna take, down the chandelier and replace it with a Beautiful brass chandelier the element of gold and brass is totally up Laurens alley And i’m sure Alex will like it too since it’s not pink and you have these giant glass globes that go on it and they’re are all different sizes it just kind of looks like a treasure we’re just gonna
figure out the various heights for these big globes and small globes and there’s no right way to do this so we’ll just get them how we want them and then see how it looks? OH my Gosh. That is a nice light fixture This chandelier is so much better than the light fixture that they had in here before this one screams Lauren it’s got balls Globes. Alright so Lauren had her own neon sign before so what we did is we got a custom-made sign for Alex the way we’re mounting these neon signs is they’re on stand off you just drill into the wall with your anchor drill to stand off on and then you just screw the neon sign on the standoffs and let’s see how they look 3-2-1 Go So, we mounted these, neon signs the LaurDIY the Wasabii and of course like, any neon sign it needs a power source because it is a light. Alright so the options are cord through the wall cord cover like running over here cord cover paint it pink. I do not want to go through the wall because I don’t wanna cut into this wallpaper. Cord cover makes me nervous just cuz, it’s like with the molding so it’s gonna be like cord cover break let’s get the chairs in See how the black cord looks cuz it might look cool Kate is a bigger fan of like the hanging wire than I am but usually I trust her and I think we’re probably just gonna Let these hang. Guys, this room is actually quite large so I had to get a big rug for this room I wanted it to unify the space I wasn’t gonna split it up and have one rug for him one rug for her Because even though we are playing the two sides off of each other they still have to meet in the middle and be one so the rug is the perfect thing to do it. This rug is insane This area rug has so many areas, there’s the left corner the right corner the the Southwest corner and Joey and I are taking a cuddle tour Okay Okay no I don’t like to be picked up. Joey my butt Wowwww look what’s over here Too much wedgy So for Alex’s side the wasabi sign is a little bit bigger just because of the way his logo is with the W. I wanted to go a little bit more simple with the chair and I found this gorgeous combo of leather with wood so you guys I have been wanting to use a peacock chair for ever. It looks so cool under the sign this is perfect like this is going to be her throne so next to the chairs we need to place a side table because when you’re sitting in a throne sometimes you need to have a drink next to your throne. So even though we’re split down the middle and we’re doing Lauren on one side and Alex on the other we need some symmetry in here as well just for the eye to kind of have moments of like Oh Those two are the same things even though this room is painted two different colors I see some symmetry. One of the things we’re doing is we’re giving them at the same desk chair but in different colors subtle affective. And the key here is giving them pieces of furniture that are concealed storage because I want to put the desks in the middle The desks are floating and airy they don’t have drawers so these credenzas are really key for them for all of their desk storage, papers, etc. Over on the other side of the room are the doors that lead outside. I wanted to do plants, Lauren requested fake plants Because she said she would kill any real plants. I’m sure per Alex’s requests too something tells me he does not know how to water plants. So i found these two really beautiful high-quality birds of paradise. They’re the same exact plants but it looks really cool, again, playing with the kind of mirror image. I am obsessed with those flamingo statues. They are actually meant for your lawn, but they’re so fun. So look, I think don’t they like clean there butt. Ew not their butts whatever preen themselves Okay, so the other items I’m styling on top of the credenza this beautiful orange vase inside I am placing a succulent branch of course it is fake it will stay like that forever Alex decided is a little more monochromatic with the tones of blue but I want to add some pops of yellow. I just feel like, yellow is a great color for him he has such a sunshiny, happy personality So on Alex’s credenza I want to style it make it fun manly, playful but obviously, not so over style that it looks like too kitschy I found these really cool acrylic blue cubes and so I’m placing three of them on the credenza and then I’m using the other one as his pen holder but he also really wants candy, so i’m just gonna chuck a lot of candy in there and a couple pens it’s a good ratio. Alright guys it’s that time we’re pulling down the tarp this was such a big risk that we took, but I am so happy with how it looks but it doesn’t matter what I think because this isn’t my room, so let’s get Laurex in here Ahhhh You guys ready?? Joey they’re down here It’s happening! It’s happening!It’s happening! It’s happening!It’s happening! It’s happening! Close your eyes close your eyes Woahh. Slight texture change right there We just didn’t peak but it’s really hard, we haven’t peaked, but we almost accidentally peaked a few times but They’re very on it and they’re like “HEY!” , and were like, “oh sorry I didn’t see anything, it was an accident” Okay alright, wait just take a moment to just imagine it behind your closed eyes what the room looks like I wanna touch the carpet No no noooo You guys wanted 50/50, split down the middle half Alex Wassabi, half LaurDIY Manly fun, bohemian colorful One…Two…Three Oh, we’re facing each other! Look at this Look at that. Woah we’re matching! I got candy! Yes! This is soo nice I painted that and then we made it into a custom wallpaper The ceiling is painted too Goodjob bro good call Look at my flamingos! Feel manly-playful? Oh yeah, this is definitely manly-playful. Right, it is. Right This blue is like the perfect colour. This is nice. And this. I have been wanting to decorate with a peacock chair for ever. I’ve never gotten to use one cause I didn’t have like a room that worked and someone fun enough to sit in it This is like your bohemian throne right here. Are these real plants? Do we have to water them? No, they’re fake per – I, I requested And I did simple styling You have so many cute things that you can add you know. Those are all cubes you can store stuff in, you can display things inside those on top of them whatever You guys have been amazing Thank you for all the hard work. Thanks for having us Thank you for having us Enjoy! Thank you I miss them already! I want to sit in your chair, I want to sit in your chair I feel manly-playful, I feel like I’m LaurDIY No other room is gonna be as nice as that room that’s the nicest room I know, I’m like stressed, about other rooms not looking as good as this room. I feel like it’s good motivation to like get decorating And like try really hard to make all the others room look good but there’s no way it’s gonna it’s gonna like be on par with that one it’s exactly what we wanted but like better. Like this is what we wanted and this is what they gave us. If you want me to lie to you if you’re like, “hey, is this room really nice?” I’d be like, “yeah it’s really nice.” I will, no i’m saying i will lie to you I know, but in my heart I’ll know it’s not But I’ll do it.
