star trek dresser

The clothes in this Star Trek dresser are ready to go on a mission into space. Imgur demostheness shared the photo of this epic furniture and said a friend painted it. The dresser features the USS Enterprise and symbols of the different divisions painted in bright colors. Clever.

adventure time chair

Oh my glob, this is the best chair restoration ever. Redditor reallylovely spotted a beat up chair at an antique shop and immediately saw an opportunity to turn the back of it into Finn from Adventure Time. She did an incredible job and explained the process:

I cleaned, sanded, primed then painted the design with acrylics. I also added a few coats of glow-in-the-dark paint to his hood and his socks. Then I sealed it about four times. For the seat, I used felt, and hand-embroidered the details of Jake’s face. For the dream bubble, I used a small piece of Adventure Time printed fabric which I bought online. After this photo was taken, I added a clear plastic layer to the seat to protect the design and allow it to actually be used as a chair (but I mostly made it as art).

She got the chair for only $20 and says she’d accept a considerable amount of money for the finished product. I’m guessing someone is going to give it to her.

tardis towels 1

Bring a little bit of the great beyond into your bathroom with new cotton towels from ThinkGeek. They have two towel sets available: one features the TARDIS from Doctor Who and the other has the Enterprise from Star Trek. Each towel set includes a bath, hand, and face towel, and you’ll be prepared for anything if you carry them all at the same time.

See more TARDIS towel pics and the Star Trek options after the break.

thwomp 1

Thwomps might have villainous intent, but the spiked cinder blocks still manage to be a little cute. Instructables user mactothefuture made a replica of the Thwomp from Super Mario Bros. using a mold box and casting the block from concrete. I wouldn’t call it a simple process, but all the details are there if you’d like to try to make your own!

Check out more photos of the Thwomp after the break.

1bff_at_at_lawn_ornament

If you’d like to recreate the battle of Hoth in your front yard, then you’ll need to buy this Star Wars AT-AT lawn ornament. It’s cast from resin, looks great and… no, I’m not actually sure if Dak is under there. Let’s just think about Ewoks now, shall we? Happy furry thoughts.

This lawn ornament will be available for purchase in November.

geek candle 1

How would you like your home to smell like Hoth or the Shire? You can order those scents and more from Etsy seller Frostbeard. The shop offers 8oz candles in glass jars, tea lights, and tarts. All of the candles are soy-based, and the descriptions sound delicious. Hoth smells like “Aspen Winter, Fresh Driven Snow, Mint” while the Shire has an aroma of “Oakmoss, clover, aloe, with a hint of sweet cherry pipe tobacco!”

Other scents in the shop are inspired by Star Trek, Harry Potter, Breaking Bad, and more. I want to stock up!

treehouse

Jim Martin’s a cool guy. According to an article in Computer Gaming World, the NASA scientist loves the MechWarrior series. He channeled those feelings into creating a huge Mad Cat (a.k.a. Timber Wolf) mech treehouse for his children. It even has a control panel. It apparently took only a couple of weeks to build and just a few hundred dollars worth of supplies including cement, metal, and wood. I’m surprised it came together that quickly and cheaply. You rock, sir.

han solo toilet seat

Han may not like the idea of being frozen in carbonite and used as a toilet seat cover in your bathroom, but he’s frozen in carbonite, so it’s not like he can say much.

This toilet seat is made by a company called Derby Covers and, apparently, all of their toilet seats are custom painted and airbrushed. That’s got to look interesting on a resume!

They cover all sorts of different fandoms, so I’m guessing that if Han’s tortured face isn’t your thing, you’ll find something you like.

You can walk all over the Imperials with this Death Star rug. This officially licensed product mesures 52″ in diameter and will make it look like the Death Star is hanging out on your living room floor. Just think how cool this’ll be as a backdrop next time your break out all those Star Wars ships you’ve got stored away.

star trek basement

Anthony Sforza isn’t your typical Star Trek fan. He has a $500,000 collection of memorabilia that includes costumes and props in his basement. He doesn’t just display it on shelves though; it’s incorporated into a replica of the USS Enterprise bridge. It’s the ultimate geek cave.

Get a tour of the basement in the video after the break.
