Then. 2013. We were living in a dark, cramped Los Angeles apartment with mismatched IKEA bookshelves lining the walls, all overflowing with action figures, comic books, and LEGO figures. We decided that it was time to level up.
Now. Fast forward. We found our first house together! It is just a rental, and still in Los Angeles (barely), but it is a major improvement. Along with our love of Robocop, Lord of the Rings, and Star Trek (and Wars) – we also share a love for geek DIY projects, vintage furniture, and home improvement. We left the IKEA bookcases on the curb and have committed to making a system upgrade.
But who’s “we”?
A happily nerdy couple living with our best friend/roommate, plus our two dogs. We are filmmakers by day, and vintage furniture collectors & gamers by weekend. We do DIY / geek DIY projects in our spare time. We don’t blog as much as we used to, but you can still find us posting projects on our Instagram.
