Would You Kindly Look At This Thing

<Ahem>

Attention, Interwebs: I made a thing. And it’s pretty damn cool.  Get ready to be jelly in 3, 2, 1…

Yes friends, my kitchen just got 287% cooler, as is it now sporting a Bioshock knife block.

Ready for the close-up!

It all started when I was supposed to be spring cleaning the kitchen, and doing all the insane things like cleaning the oven for the first time in my life.  It was an unfamiliar and intimidating prospect, so I decided very suddenly that my knife block was ugly and boring and needed a re-do like RIGHT MEOW.  First I painted it teal, then cut bits from the Xbox game booklet and mod-podged them on.  Then I feathered in some copper paint around the edges to give it that “my Randian Tomorrowland went horrifically awry and slowly rotted at the bottom of the sea” patina look that everyone is loving right now.  Dotted in some gears and some nautical bits, and garnished with little metal barnacles (which are actually bits from an old bracelet).  I discovered, after a runaway gloop of superglue and a string of curses, that dried excess superglue has a kind of barnacley/lichenish/encrusted with sea salt look to it, so I ran with it and dotted some more around.  Then I layered on several coats of matte finisher, so a stray spill won’t ruin my fab new knife block and consequently my day.  And ta-daa! Gamer chic kitchen stuff.

I have more stuff to show you guys, so come back soon!  I’ve got a Little Sister almost complete, that Beetlejuice shelf I promised was coming all the way back in February, and a few Bioshock Infinite inspired odds and ends.  Subscribe to the blog, and you’ll get an email notification all 3x a year I manage to post something, or like Nevermore Decor on Facebook to get that plus approximately 5 random fandom memes and 1 someecard in your newsfeed as well.

Coming Soon to a Blogpost Near You

I’ve been absent for awhile.  I started up my Etsy shop, and there was so much to learn and to figure out, that I fell down that rabbit hole for awhile and neglected this space.  I think I needed time to reassess just where I thought I was going with this blog anyway.  Three months in, and already losing the path.  Thanks, ADD!  But now I’m back and ready to attack, and I have so many thrift store makeovers to show you, I don’t even know where to begin.

COMING SOON:

An unexceptional jewelry box gets glammed up and vamped out,

A wall shelf that goes from bears and blocks to Beetlejuice,

A Barbie styling head doll into a Little Sister from Bioshock,

Some super-thrifty fun with cardboard and coffee cans,

And we may even get into a cosplay accessory project that I’ve been sitting on for awhile.  All this and more awaits!  Come back soon!!
