Got a hole in your wall? Why fill it with plaster when you can fill it with Legos! Because come on, plaster is soooooo last season!
Artist Jan Vormann has been using Legos to patch holes in walls and statues, many of which were leftover from WWII. It creates not only a visually engaging piece but also a comedic one, Legos are modeled after blocks used to build buildings and he is using these mini toy models to repair buildings. Funny eh ;) Also gives me even more ideas for using Legos around the house!

Earlier Katie posted an awesome blog about Lego ceramics (I want them so bad!). But until these get distribution theres a few ways you can enjoy some DIY Lego home decor right now.
Lego Kitchen Crafts
A napkin holder, utensil holder, fruit basket and more. All of these can be yours with a little time with some bricks.
When Bob of The Bob Blog found out a that some planters he wanted were a little out of his price range he did what anyone else would do….build them out of legos.
A Lego Desk
This 120 lb desk is made entirely of Legos. Apparently he had to buy special edition pieces to make the drawers slide. Oh and he also built a fully functioning Lego grandfather clock
Lego CEO Desk
Ok so Im cheating on this one since it isnt made out of Legos and you have to buy it…buy its just so darn cool! The Swedish designers describe the desk as such…
“…a desk for a powerful person that reflects on a glimpse of the lost childhood, when life was easier and freer.”
I wouldnt mind having any of these in my apartment!
i wish i could own a set of these dinnerware:
these aren’t for sale yet. but i hope that this designer, Vinicius Zarpelon, gets picked up by some big producer and they start manufacturing these. i want them!

in case any of you do not already know this, i love pacman. i wish i owned my own arcade machine of ms. pacman. what i love even more is when couture ads incorporate pacman or other beloved nerd things:

besides loving me some old school arcade, i also am obsessed with legos. i love building them! i actually have a star wars lego kit at home patiently waiting for my crafty fingers to build it!

ads that incorporate nerd references + expensive couture clothing = super nerd awesomeness! i mean come on, with a hot model blasting a lego gun, who wouldn’t buy her red ruffly dress?
Toxel recently posted a blog of Creative and Unusual Sofa Designs and I thought I would share some of them with you as well as a few additions if found myself.
I love that this looks so industrial and rockstar when folded up
Swiming Pool Sofa
So impractical and simultaneously so awesome
Made in the 1960s and still ridiculously cool
Scrubbing Brush Sofa
Finally I can achieve my dream of living in a sea anemone like Nemo!
The Climbing Sofa
For those of you that have reeealllllyyyy tiny apartments…this would certainly save some space.
Im not totally sure how you sit on this sofa…but it looks amazing.
Behind the Wall Sofa
This sofa actually frightens me terribly.
And last but DEFINITELY not least…
Build your own sofa dammit! You buy the bricks individually and construction your own cushioney wonder. I want this so badly I cannot even describe it…but my friend Jenn can! Her comment was “it’s cute and it looks like all the nubbins would be great spots to put your pabst.” hehe

My friend Jenn over a Infinite Lives has once aagain turned me on to another geek themed baked good. Witness the utter glory that is…
Lego Batman The Videogame Cake
“It took cake designer Elisa Strauss and a team of people twelve days to make this 300 lb (~136 kg) cake. The LEGO Men (and Ladies) are handmade and edible.”
Elisa Strauss and her team are known for their amazing and detailed cakes, they’ve competed in the Food Network Extreme Cake Challenge where they won first place for their awesome Sock Monkey cake.
