Facebot Smile Roundup

More goodies from the Epbot & Fans of Epbot Facebook pages!

Brittany P.'s Doctor Who bath makeover made me do a double-take. Here's her "Before"
 And the "After:"
Really digging the teal and that grey tile! Only, look closer:

 
 The "tile" is actually painted brick paneling! Brittney tells me she was inspired by our painted brick tutorial for the steampunk room. I can't get over how much it looks like glass subway tile!


Remember when I talked about all the Rainbow Brite stuff at Hallmark? 


Haha! Awwww. DO GO ON.


 Speaking of rainbows, prepare to squee over Cheryl G's rainbow Toothless mobile!

Cheryl's mom sewed these for her using this PDF pattern from Etsy.

In fact, her whole nursery is dragon themed, and she has a print of the baby Toothless John commissioned from our friend Nathan, right behind the crib!

This picture makes me so happy.


More Doctor Who goodness: Kari Ann salvaged the backing from a broken dresser mirror, and turned it into a TARDIS headboard!

It even lights up!

I'll let her explain the deets:



Check out the fab details in her paint job:

WOWIE. And I love that the windows glow in the dark.




Here's a shiny ray gun I forgot to post last time:


And Erin's Stay Puft baby, because the world needs more Stay Puft babies:

Yes, Erin, yes she is.

And since this post already has a Doctor Who theme going, let's end with Debra here:

You guys, she was inspired by my mom!
You better believe I sent this over to Mom the second I saw it.

I get e-mails and letters from Epbot fans ranging from ages 9-90, and I'm not sure anything makes me prouder than knowing our geeky community welcomes them all. In fact, just a few days after Debra posted that, another reader named Donna posted a message on Fans of Epbot that included this snippet:


YES.

Our little Fans of Epbot tribe is growing, btw (I think they've settled on "Facebots?"), and I'm impressed with how thoroughly you guys distract me from getting any work done through the week. The discussions and silliness and pictures and advice and general cheering-each-other-on - plus now there's a plush "Squee-bot" traveling the globe visiting readers?! - is like a virtual version of the geeky commune I once wished for. Good stuff. Gold medals for everyone.

Finally, regarding the things I share here: if it's posted on Fans of Epbot - which is a private group to facilitate real talk - I ask permission first. If you share on the public Epbot page, though, then I'll take that as tacit permission to share your project pics and whatnot here on the blog. (Don't worry; if it's something super personal I'll still double check, though.)

And please DO keep sharing your stories and projects, peeps! They make me happy. :D

  1. Brittany P., if you stopped by the comments, I'd love to know where you found both of those white shelves! I'm trying to find something similar for my own teal bathroom makeover!

    1. It seems to me that the small shelf is an IKEA BEKVÄM spice rack painted white: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40070185/

    2. The smaller shelf is indeed an IKEA spice rack. The larger is a floating shelf I found at Target. ☺️

  3. I was fooled by the tile too - it's so realistic :D
    And I think those dragons need to be a thing in my place lol.
    I love this page. It's where I come when I need a smile and where it's almost become a small support group of similar souls who completely get each other. It's amazing:D

  5. This is like a "Sunday Sweets" here on EPBOT! It is soooo hard to pick a favorite!

    Facebot might just be the straw that gets this camel onto FB.

  11. Love these so much! I wish I had the talent of your other readers! I finally did join Facebots, but I need more hours in the day so that I can hang out there more. So far I've only lurked here and there, because...ya, intros are hard, y'all! Thanks for the shares Jen!

  12. Squee! You posted my gun! :D

    Someday, after marriage and with kids forthcoming, I'm going to create a HTTYD-themed nursery. I recently splurged and purchased all the available dragons from Build-a-bear. Just waiting for one more to be released. But I totally love that mobile, and am going to have to save it for future reference. Can't believe I missed that one on FB!

    And I totally agree, the Facebots are very good at being a distraction. :)
