POW Bar Stool Now Complimenting Arcade


Mom of the Year Award goes to my mom for making my dream a reality. A POW Block bar stool now welcomes guests to sit and play the Mario Bros. reproduction arcade cabinet. I found a couple old bar stools at a garage sale for $1. They were a bit rickety and had round seats, but my handy dad made a square seat and strengthened the stool with deep screws and some glue. My crafty mom took the pixel art POW Block I provided and got the black, white, blue, and light blue fabric needed and cut out the areas to pixel-perfection. After applying the pattern to the black fabric, she made a cushioned seat and wrapped it in plastic material so the POW would never come undone or get dirty. The best part is, sitting on the POW Block doesn't even use it up!

Hi, very nice work. I was wondering if you could help me out. I have done a similar build and still need the control panel overlay. Would it be possible for me to use yours? I would greatly appreciate it. Also where did you get it printed? Thanks

Wow. It's a piece of crap. Why not just get the real thing. The joysticks are wrong, the buttons look like hell. What a total waste. Moron.

Really I normally love your restorations, but I feel this is a total miss and bore of a restoration. No wit or charm whatsoever.

I really really need a high res picture of your panel, the one posted on art gallery doesn't show the full picture! I need this before I can start my arcade!

Please email me KeithPuetz@gmail.com
