An old Japanese video game console sits in my living room and I write things about it here.

Interior Decor: Famicom Carts as Parquet Flooring? Wallpaper? Coffee Tabletop?
Some carts I have more copies of than others. Super Mario Bros, Spartan X, Excitebike and Donkey Kong Jr for some reason I have quite a few of. They were pretty popular games back in the day and are pretty good games to play now. Still though, I don`t relaly need 12 copies of each even though I have that many.
When you have 12 of the same Famicom cart you can organize them into 3 by 4 squares which, when put together with other carts you have 12 of, can open up some interesting interior decorating ideas.
Parquet type flooring is one. You would have to put them under some
sort of sturdy, extremely thick plexiglass to prevent them from being broken though,
which would be expensive to install. Maybe not the best idea.
They would make for a great coffee-table top too, just put a piece of glass over them and you are golden. Definitely a cool conversation starter.
They would also work pretty good as wallpaper if you had some way of attaching them to the wall wtihout damaging them. Probably there is some way of doing this. A wall covered with Famicom carts in 3 by 4 squares would look pretty awesome. If I ever open up a Famicom cafe, that is how I am going to decorate it.
