Mario Nursery

Reddit user troymcklure is a Nintendo fan, but that may be the understatement of the century. He's a huge Nintendo fan! Being a Mario fan myself, his recent DIY project really brings out the geek in me: take a peek at his custom-made Mario Kart-themed nursery!

As shown in his photos and YouTube video (embedded below), Mcklure built all of the nursery's decorations from scratch, including the large Mario on the ceiling that was made using a handmade silicone mold that lights up with Mario Nursery 2remote-controlled neon blue LED lights. Silicone Mario is even chasing a line of 3-D printed gold coins that hand from the ceiling as mobiles.

The walls are expertly painted, depicting various scenes and characters from the Mario Kart series. Even the road is painted to make it look like Mario drove around the Princess's castle and right up onto the ceiling - very cool! A custom-made Super Mario Bros. mobile hands over the baby's crib with various plush series figures abound, including some non-plush collectibles. (Hopefully baby doesn't find Bowser to be too scary!)

The entire project took a year and a half of work, but it's not the first major Nintendo-themed project he tackled. He also created Zelda and Yoshi's Island nurseries.

Check out the video below and get ready to be wowed!
