http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TARDIS to answer your question, since I dont really know due to my excessive viewing of less refined shows, like Mindy Project and more Mindy Project.
I'm not going to pretend this was my idea, it absolutely wasn't. There are a bunch of pics on Pinterest that people have uploaded, and I had some difficulty finding blog posts or tutorials. The only ones I found were at http://imgur.com/a/E2Sgm#k2yNC1P and http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=535.0, and they were very different kinds of doors than my... economical (cheap) plain door.
Step one was paint. and wine.
It only took a quart of paint, but did require several coats, even thought I did splurge on the paint-and-primer fancy paint. Because I am so very refined.
I made the treacherous and exciting journey to the Dollar store in a questionable neighborhood to score some cheap frames ($3 each) and sketchy looking glue.
I laid them out to paint, and I used a slightly darker and shinier blue for the frames.
After it was dry (only one coat necessary!)
I taped off where I wanted the frames to end, and then measured where along the tape each frame should be and made a little mark, so I wouldnt have to mess with measurements while I was gluing.
Then, I used the glue to attach the frames.
(I expect to have to buy Slumlord Bob a new door upon move-out.)
The top 2 frames were a little different, I kept the glass in them to make the little windows-
I glued the glass back in the frame after I painted the panes, then glued those up like the others.
After the frames were firmly affixed, and only one was wonky, I moved on to the top.
I taped off where I wanted the top.
***Note: I have tried every kind of painters tape ever. This one is the BLUE tape, and the label indicated that it was specially made for paint bleeding reduction and sharp lines, and I have fallen for this lie on multiple occasions. Frog tape is my favorite and the blue tape, along with other tape disappointments is going straight in the trash. Rant over.***
Black acrylic paint made the black box, and I hand-lettered the writing. It was tempting to buy one of those vinyl letter kits from etsy but I have no patience to wait and I have a pretty steady hand for lettering.
Ryan had also been sleeping on a futon and we decided it was time for a legit bed, since he is now man-sized. My dad and I split the cost and hooked him up. My Dad's wife Rhonda bought all new bedding for his new bed. Isnt it cute?
Also, can we take a moment to acknowledge the Instagram post he hashtagged #bestmomever ?!?
Please enjoy this beautiful moment:
