Dad makes a custom Mario Kart 8-inspired nursery and becomes instant internet sensation

Seriously though – how killer is this thing? From the murals to the hand-built replica cart, oh and the Lakitu above the bed, this guy nailed it. The attention to detail all around is really top-notch, we seriously need to give a tip of the cap to this guy.

Now I have to talk to my wife about a nursery.
