I kidd. It's not a tardis. But that's an awesome idea.
(What's a tardis?) This is a tardis.
(What's she talking about?) I have no idea.
A couple people guessed I was building a tardis for my "MovieCase" that I had to be all secret-y about. Remember? My "MovieCase" that has taken me a decade to finish because I just had to stain and poly it and each coat took a decade to dry, dangit?
And clearly we need another evening-out coat here. . .
I wanna tell you that it's done. Ish. My 6,983 coat of poly still has to dry. Apparently I want to be able to see my reflection in the wood before I'm done with my coats.
Um, can we talk about this some more? Later? When I get it in it's final resting spot? When it's not tacky to the touch, like, after, say a decade?
But I digress.
I'm kinda nervous now. You guys thought I was cool enough to build a tardis? I'm not that cool. Maybe you'll be like, all disappointed 'n stuff. Crap.
Okay. I'm gonna show you anyway. I wanted it to match the hubs' double desk, since it's going in that area. I wanted it to be vintage. Classic. Whew. Deep breath. Here we go.
Here's my source of inspiration:
Yes, friends. I wanted an old-school movie ticket booth.
I got myself a sheet of 1/2'' ply, cut it to size, and then I started marking. Planning.
Laying stuff out.
I realize that's not straight. 'S okay. I fixed it when it counted. TONS! of dark walnut stain, GALLONS! of polyurethane, some plexiglass, curtains, trim, gold glaze, vinyl (THANK YOU RACHAEL!), and I got 'er done.
Do ya wanna see how it turned out?
Early morning light.
Ta Da. Show ya when it's all filled up with movies.
