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.
