An Australian mother with a creative flair told how she made a Nintendo Switch game wall for her 11-year-old son’s new bedroom.
The feature replicates the look to the popular game console that can be played in either the handheld style or on a television screen.
Katie, from New South Wales, said she was concerned about her son’s attitude by constantly looking down on the handheld game and also wanting to create something unique for his birthday.
The 36-year-old said the project only cost $ 100 to build because she already had most of the supplies and power tools in the house.

“We had just built his bedroom and I wanted to give him a ‘wow’ factor, because it was the first time he had his own bedroom after sharing with his brother,” she told FEMAIL.
Katie said she has always been a ‘very creative artist’ and has previous experience restoring furniture through the small business she runs with her cousin.
Not only was the project inexpensive to complete, but it also took six hours to build and paint.

The entire feature is built with wood and is made to fit around the television screen.
‘I made and painted the whole thing myself; the hardest part was soaking the thin wooden plates to make it bend and wrap around the frame without breaking or breaking, “she said.
The replica buttons and control sticks are also made from wood that has cut them into circular shapes.
Katie said her son was ‘so excited’ when she unveiled the finished product and saw it on the wall of his bedroom.
