I have been working on these forever.
Here’s my blog entry:

Those shelves look so real just like the game. I thought I was looking at a screen from the game looking at the first pic.

Having grown up with an 8-bit Nintendo- I am loving your creation. You totally need to make a clock for the room, that looks like a coin from the game too. And a trash can/toy bin/whatever that looks like one of the pipes Mario used to sneak down. AWESOME JOB!

Fantastic job! Looks like you used that frog tape. I used it on my chess boards and it works like a charm.

I love stuff like this. Classic. Excellent choice not going with standard shelves.

Well done! Very creative. Have you tried hitting the question mark boxes with your head to see if a flower grows out of them, yet?

Actually, I bought a bucket, some paint and some bits to make a Warp Pipe trashcan already.
I also have a flower printed out to scale and I will probably make one sticking out the top of one of the blank boxes.
A coin clock sounds good too.
