Geeky Home Decor for Non-DIY’ers (Bonus – Nothing Over $75!)

We are obviously big believers in DIY projects – both for the satisfaction of it and because we hate spending money. There are, however, some things that we just can’t make ourselves (sad face), plus we know that not everyone is into getting messy and spending their weekends with a paintbrush and a sanding block. For that, here’s a roundup of some of our favorite geeky home decor, to buy instead of DIY.

    Love the site, love the post, etc etc. I’m quite sure that thwamp pillow needs to come to my house.

    I do have a beef with the maker of the gamer alphabet pillow however. Link is under Z for Zelda, which I recognize was the game he was in but we to put a righteous end to the gender-bending confusion of our favorite little hero!
