Photos: Turn Your Living Room Into An Homage To Nintendo
Apparently, nostalgic Nintendo furniture is a thing. Last year we noticed this surprisingly elegant wooden Nintendo controller coffee table that retails for $3,500. But for less than the half the price (and half the class) you can have a coffee table that's a deadringer for the OG Nintendo system, plus a couple of pixellated wooden cutouts of Mario characters.
Head to Craigslist where you can find this 7-piece set that will turn your living room into a nostalgic Buzzfeed article you can live (and game) in. Without any disrespect to the Mario oeuvre, we gotta say this might be the sort of thing you'd want to warn a gal (or gent) about on your OKCupid profile.
