Our Nerd Home is 3 months old! Here’s a look back at our favorite projects, plus some updates on what’s to come.

How to make a DIY 8-bit fire   DIY Han Solo in Carbonite   DIY LEGO Minifigure Storage

It’s hard to believe that we’re over three months in (it feels like we JUST started the site)! Here are a few of our favorite DIY geek projects, plus news on what’s to come at Our Nerd Home.

Geek Home Decorating - DIY Han Solo Drawer PullsThe very first DIY project that we posted is still one of our favorites, and makes me smile when I open the kitchen cupboards (then frown when I see how crazy disorganized we are). DIY Han Solo in carbonite drawer pulls.

Geek Home Decor - DIY LEGO Minifigure DisplayThis DIY LEGO Minifigure display hangs front and center on our living room wall (we STILL have’t finished the gallery wall around it that we keep planning… One of these days).

Geek Home Decor: DIY 8-bit fireNow that the holidays are coming and we’re starting to decorate our “mantle” with DIY Christmas decor, we appreciate our 8-bit fireplace even more. It’s become a great centerpiece for our Geek Holiday.

You can see all of our DIY projects here.

In other news, you may have noticed that our posting has slowed down a little in the past couple of weeks. We are deep in pre-production on our next feature film, and have been casting and location scouting like crazy (the life of an indie film producer = wearing many hats). We start shooting next week, but our shooting schedule is actually very light, so we’ll still be posting regularly at Our Nerd Home (and we have a bunch of project we’re really excited to share with you!).

In site news, we are hoping to update the look of our Our Nerd Home with a new design (we’re still figuring it out, so suggestions are very welcome), we’ll finally be starting a Facebook page (one for Our Nerd Home, and one for our production company – in case you’re also interested in following THAT adventure), and we’ll be trying to come up with a more permanent logo for ONH. If there is anything else you would like to see on this site, please don’t hesitate to let us know!

Today we’re working on DIY’ing some Thanksgiving and Christmas geek decorations. If you’re doing the same, we’d love to hear about it. 🙂

We truly appreciate the support of everyone who has popped by our site, and a very huge thanks for the bloggers and editors who have re-posted our content on your own sites/blogs/tumblrs/Pinterests/etc. We are consistently blown away by how supportive the DIY/geek community is – so thank you!
