I'm not even entirely done this project but I can't stand to wait to share it.

I bought this beat up old wardrobe for $10 in an online auction. It was so bad that when we showed up to pay for it they asked if we were sure we wanted it  Cheesy

The more I looked at it, the more I wanted to turn it in to some sort of portal to Narnia... then I was reminded that maybe my kid might need it more for hanging clothes in and stuff.  Roll Eyes

So, my boy picked a lovely shade of blue and I started painting...

And I quickly realized that this was no portal to Narnia... THIS WAS A TARDIS!

Like I said, it's not done. The door inserts will be replaced over the next week or two, hardware replaced and a storage box and light added to the top... but I'm THRILLED with how it's turning out and the kiddo loves it too Smiley

Super awesome! I hope my boys never see this, or they may come home with some unrealistic expectations!  Wink
