I love a good “upcycling” project. If I can take something that looks like it should just be thrown out and then make it into something awesome, its a great feeling! (Remember when I did the play kitchen revamp?)

A few weeks ago, my mom and I were out running errands and we saw a little push car sitting by the curb. There were people in the front lawn, sitting on lawn chairs so I asked, “How much do you want for the little car?”

“Nothing!” said one of the men. “You can have it!”

I grabbed it up and tossed it in the car. I thought Huff the Babe would love it, but it desperately needed a paint job and I knew EXACTLY how I wanted this bad boy to turn out:

I gave it a good scrub down, with help from my happy assistant:

Then, I disassembled it and taped down parts I didn’t want painted:

Then, I went to work sanding it. After I sanded everything, I painted it with a coat of primer. After that coat of paint dried, I painted it the color I chose:

FullSizeRender

 

Any guesses as to what it going to be?

When I was satisfied with the color, I got to work adding some accessories and special touches:

I put it back together (shout out to my dad for getting the wheels back on), replaced the broken safety strap, and hollered for the kiddos to come see!

They were VERY impressed! And, to be honest, so was I! I am extremely happy with how it turned out! Especially when I calculated everything. These cars run about $50. My Batmobile revamp? Less than $16! Woohoo!

 

Have you ever undertaken a project like this? What did you do? Share in the comments below!

Y’all, I’m glad it’s Friday, but I’m also super bummed. Why? Because I’m in Oklahoma when I SHOULD be in San Diego.

Sigh. For those of us stuck at home, anxiously watching our Twitter feeds to see what’s going down at #SDCC, I have some geeky goodies that will help you feel a little less sad about missing all the fun.

 

This year at Comic Con, Toys R Us is debuting new Batman play sets and they are awesome and full of girl power!

Oh yes! That’s Batgirl from the original 1960’s TV show! AND, there’s another set with my favorite, Harley Quinn and the Dark Knight himself!

 

And speaking of the caped crusader, check out this A-DORK-ABLE dress from ModCloth!

Isn’t it so stinking cute?! I think I know what I’m putting on my Christmas list…

 

This fall, we’re going to see new episodes of our fave shows as well as new toys! Like this Agent Carter Vinyl Pop!

Peggy Carter Vinyl Pop

Peggy’s “Pop” will be released this August! I NEED one of these! I think I may get a Captain American one and put them on a shelf close together. I totally ‘ship them!

 

Love Games of Thrones so much you want to live it, but not much of a LARP-er? Then pick up one of these play sets from HBO and you can pass it off as your kid’s!

Iron Throne Playset

Exclusively from HBO, this line of GoT figurines and sets are basically the show come to life! The first set, above, features Joffrey, Tyrion, and Lannister guards with the Irone Throne. Future sets will have Daenerys, John Snow, Ghost, Grey Worm, Rhaegal and so much more!

 

Y’all, like the boy wizard, I feel as though Hogwarts will always be my home. Anytime I see ANYTHING HP-related, I have to buy it. And it looks like ThinkGeek will be getting a deposit from my Gringott’s account soon! Look at these excellent earrings:

Harry Potter earrings

Seriously. How stunning would you look with these dangling from your ears as you walked into the Yule Ball?

 

Happy fangirling!

Friday, you beautiful thing, you. I’ve missed you. I’m glad you’re back.

And, my rabid reader, I’m glad you’re here too! I’ve got some AH-MAY-ZING stuff for your fandom-loving heart!

I do NOT like to be pranked. However I do enjoy watching other people get pranked. Especially when its Disney-themed. Check out this hilarious prankster tricking his friends with lines from classic Disney movies!

I recently cleaned out my closet and found that most of it is full of t-shirts. And you know what? Honey Badger don’t care. I love t-shirts! I also love a good book. And now, my two loves are colliding!

Fan GIrl Friday Tee

This shirt, exclusively from Litographs.com prints tees with text from your favorite classic books! The one above is Great Gatsby-themed and there are so many more, including Pride and Prejudice, Hamlet, and Peter Pan! I want them ALL!

I’m always looking for ways to motive myself to work out, but they don’t usually work. These yoga pants, however, will make me feel like the beast I know I am!

fan girl friday she ra

These She-Ra bottoms are sure to let the guy that doesn’t wipe off the elliptical that you are NOT playing around at the gym! The website, 80stees.com, has a plethora of throwback-themed apparel for everyone! Check them out!

Don’t forget, Father’s Day is this weekend! Get your family’s patriarch some silk swag fit for a hero or the best air hockey table for endless tournaments with the kids to enjoy!

Hey fangirls and boys, I’m back with another round-up of geeky goodies! Mother’s Day is next Sunday, and I’ve found some gifts for the nerd-mama in your life! Let’s get to it, shall we?

 

I love purses. I’m kind of like Jessica Day in that sense. If you’ve got a mom that loves to accessorize and show off her nerdy side, then look no further than Etsy shop, Geeky Girl Glitter!

How cute is that Batman purse? She also has a Vinyl Pop inspired Harley Quinn bag and other DC heroes/villains-themed goodies! Go check her out!

 

This next find is awesome because it can be a gift for Mom AND Dad! When going places with a little one, diaper bags can be a tad overwhelming. They’re not the most functional satchels; everything falls to the bottom! But not in this bad boy:

tactical diaper bag

It’s a tactical diaper bag! Exclusively from Think Geek, this bag has two removable pouches, 16 pockets (with zippers), AND Velcro name patches! Plus, it goes with everything with its simple black style!

 

Got a techy mom who also likes to stay fabulous? Check out this iGlam lipstick stylus from Perpetual Kid!

Now she can access apps easier—like Facebook to post embarrassing photos of you!

 

If your mom is more of a wine connoisseur, keep her looking tidy with these!

Their Wine Wipes! They keep Mom’s lips, teeth, and tongue clear of red wine stains so she can have more than one glass and no one will know!

 

Plus, you can pair it with one of these fantastic glasses!

rapunzel wine glass

Etsy shop owner Kelly Arce Designs has a collection of Disney-themed wine glasses! I LOVE the Rapunzel one and the Cruella de Ville one! She also has a Harry Potter-inspired goblet!

 

Happy fangirling!

Fan Girl Thursday

I know its not Friday (full disclosure: I woke up this morning totally thinking it was!) but I couldn’t wait to share all of these geeky goodies to help you celebrate this Father’s Day weekend!

If you haven’t started shopping for your nerdy pop, have no fear! The monkeys over at Think Geek have got you covered!

 

Everyone thinks their dad is a superhero, but now every dad can feel like a superhero with this Batman hat! The bat signal even glows in the dark! (This way, you can find Dad while he’s waiting for his curfew-breaking teens on the front porch!) 1ba8_batman_glow_in_the_dark_hat

 

Now that summer’s here, show your dad he’s not just King of the Grill, but Ninja of the Grill with this tactical apron! There are pockets to hold anything and everything a true grill-master requires.

If your dad is more of a gamer than a griller, you’re in luck! The largest collection of video games (certified by the people at the Guinness World Records) is up for auction!

video games The 11,000+ games have a starting bid of $750, 250.00, so you’ll need to dig in your pockets for this one. But, I think you’d solidify your favorite child status for the foreseeable future.

 

 

If you’re looking for a way to let your dad know he’s the best in all Westeros, take page from these parents! They threw their daughter a Game of Thrones-inspired birthday party! GoT Bday

I’m sure Dad would love such a celebration! Just, try not to make it as gory as the Red Wedding.
