Arcade Cabinet Standing Desk

Standing desks have been rising in popularity these past few years, so I thought I’d design one that is truly geeky: a standing desk that looks like an arcade cabinet. It’s the perfect standing desk for work and play.

Donkey Kong Country Papercraft

It’s been awhile since I posted a papercraft project (of my own making), so I’m happy to share these crates from the first Donkey Kong Country game (SNES). All 5 “animal buddies” are accounted for. Also I made a crate for Smash Bros too.

I recommend you use Card Paper, which makes for a very sturdy crate. After the jump you’ll find all the templates.

Super Mario Curtains

You could probably accuse me of phoning this idea in, as it is merely a screenshot of curtains imposed onto an actual curtain (there’s an Inception joke in there somewhere). But what I am trying to do here is make this an actual product.

I’ve found a few Etsy people who specialize in sublimated bedding and curtains, and I believe this design would make for a good candidate. As for bedding, I’m hoping for something along the lines of the duvet cover pictured here. With matching cartridge pillow case!

This design is ideal for the shower curtain, especially if you have black and white checkered tiling present. It could also be employed for windows too.
