My family is rather odd. We're all extremely nerdy, and can't be content with "normal" things. So, when my mother said that I could paint whatever I wanted on our walls, I jumped for joy!


Because I am a giant nerd, I was not content with my boring door that I had already painted bright red a few years ago. No. I had to have a Tardis as my door. And so, my Tardis was born!

It's very stylized, because I was a huge fan of Vincent and The Doctor. I loved how they had the Tardis painted in the painting, so I did my door similarly.

(Please excuse the black on the top of the wall. It's the beginnings of Narnia in our upstairs hallway. Yes. The Tardis is stopped in Narnia.)





My room is at the end of a very narrow hallway, so it was impossible to back up far enough to get a decent picture! Blast it all.





And one of me coming out of my room!


(And yes, that might... POSSIBLY... be an Amy hoodie.... Maybe... *cough*)

And one extremely narcissistic one, just because. This is now my facebook profile picture. I was rather excited about completing my door.





Now, onwards to the downstairs!

This is in the downstairs hall.

It's an elven brooch!



And, next to the stairs....

"One ring to rule them all..."


Please excuse my messy house. I am a crafter, not a cleaner.


And, finally, waayyyyy up on the wall of my living room....

The Hogwarts crest! Cheesy


It's about 5 feet tall, and around 20 feet off the ground. I spent a whole week living on a ladder.




Thank you, and goodnight! *exits with a swish of a cape*

That all looks so great! I hope you'll keep us posted as Narnia progresses? Maybe you could put in an actual lamp post? Your mum is amazing for letting you paint the house like that!!!!

Love them all! I really like the pic with you coming out of the TARDIS your room. And the elven script! Agreed on your mum being awesome for letting you paint all over the walls. I hope you post your Narnia when it's done.
