My Future House

I like to bookmark things that I might buy for my future house. BTW, I’m a huge geek so a lot of the things I like have a nerd-inspired look to them. Here’s a peek:

I don’t know why but I’ve always had a mini-crush on key racks. Yeah, I know that’s weird! I can just imagine stepping in the door and placing my keys on the key rack. I’m always paranoid about losing my keys or forgetting my keys the minute I close the door. This way I always know where it is and it’s easy to remember to grab on my way out. I love these DIY key racks by Design Sponge made by wood and wrapping paper! I have the CUTEST robot wrapping paper that would just be perfect for this!

I’ve also decided I must have a wall mounted bottle opener, especially one as cute as this! Can you tell I love useful things that also double as art?? I could probably make a diy project out of this one too and be able to use whatever stencil I want (ROBOTS? or ELEPHANTS?).

In my office, these ultra nerdy posters would be hanging on the wall:

Web 2.0 Poster

If you can’t see the details click here for the larger version

and The Online Communities Poster

which you can buy here.

I love maps and I love the internet!

And lastly, on my couch would sit these lovely DOS directories pillows (notice how the directories can be tailored to represent your interests?). I can see boyrobot shaking his head at this one. :)

These are not for sale but could easily be replicated with some silkscreening or for the very crafty ambitious…embroidery!

Cool ideas! Don’t forget about the ice cream scoops from the dollar store mounted to your wall that double as knick knack holders! LOL!

“I’ve always had a mini-crush on key racks.”
I guarantee i will not hear this again today.

I have a wall mounted bottle opener (came with my house) but for some reason i can never find a bottle opener! during those rare times i have to open a non-screw off cap
