It's the TARDIS!  

Actually it's my entertainment center/police public storage box

You can tell that's an older shot because it has my smaller TV and is not stuffed to the brim.

Drama shot

I saw someone had painted an entertainment center to look like the TARDIS online, and being the huge Doctor Who nerd I am, I not only HAD to have one, despite not having a TV at the time, I had to do it myself!  I worked on this over a period of four months, with a lot of help from my dad and my uncle.  The full step by step history can be found on my build thread at the TARDIS Builders board, which was an ENORMOUS help when I was designing and building the old girl: http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=540.0
Long story short: lots of plywood, 1x3s, sweat, tears, and one table saw kickback across the stomach.  It is my pride and joy.
