karaksindru and I were talking about Doctor Who (no good reason, we're just geeks) and he mentioned he wished he had a TARDIS. Of course, I then thought about making a full-size model of a police box, but the cost is prohibitive on my nonexistent budget. We finally settled on faux-painting a hollow-core door to look like one side of the TARDIS and installing it in place of his current bedroom door.

If I make this happen, it might be the single biggest interior design change to jaehop since Karak became the landlord.

My inner gay man is going to kill me for such an appalling lack of taste, but my inner geek is about to explode from joy. My muse just wants another drink and a lot more paint. And I have no idea what the hell I'm doing, but that's normal for me.

EDIT, 0430: I have slightly more clue of how to go about making Karak's TARDIS-door thanks to The Blue Box Project, PoliceBoxes.com amd Rob's 3D Doctor Who Images. Thank you, Google.

The door might work better on the doorway to the room where my desktop is located. Walking into the TV area from the hallway, the door I'm talking about is on the left, opposite Rojzik's room.

Well, the TARDIS is from Doctor Who, the longest running Science Fiction Television which ran from 1963 to 1989? The TARDIS stood for Time and Relative Dimensions In Space, and was able to travel through time and space. It also was larger inside the British Police Box shell than outside.

This I have to see some time. (My inner geek would never settle for the doorframe, and also would be in on making a fullsize TARDIS if I ever figured out where I'd store it / move it.)

Karak suggested I use a different doorway than my original suggestion where the space would allow me to do a buildout of the front half of a police box so he can have proper double doors. The real kick is that the doorway he suggested goes into a small room (partly tucked under a staircase) where he keeps most of the computers at his house.

Once whatever I do with it is underway, I'll start a Gallery album on my server so people can follow its progress.
