Tardis close call... Szwoosh!

Well, my geek senses went into overload, and now I am on the hunt...

One of my geeky enjoyments is Doctor Who.  I wrote a blog that I want to make a garden shed out of a Tardis.  (Stupid spell check doesn't know what that word is... Hmph.)

Anywho, I was on Craigslist, the bastion of all things cheap, interesting, or generally unwanted, and found this.

This is the item on Craigslist.

Thumbgal (This is what the Tardis looks like, for reference)

Ack!  It was plastic, it was cheap, it was the right general shape, it was cheap, and it was lightweight.  
Oh, and it was cheap!

I called.  

"Sorry, we have someone coming over right now."

I thanked him, hung up. And grumbled.  I decided to look it up online, to see if I could find the same thing... 

Husband suggested I call them back and ask what brand it was.  I did, and they said it probably was Home Depot, or Wal Mart...  It had been some time ago.

So, I looked, and tried different ways of describing it, I have found:
  • Rubbermaid makes something close, but not close enough to do the doors correctly.
  • Google Image thinks what that first image is a "door", and while there are some lovely doors in the Interwebby World, it wasn't what I was seeking.
  • Google also doesn't discriminate well, I asked for images of Plastic Cabinet, and it came up with wooden cabinets, plastic bins, doors of various types, and for some odd reason, a tan couch.

So, I will keep my eyes open, this would make a neat 'shed' for what I want, and it would save me so much work.

(I think Doctor Who just threw his scarf over his shoulder, waved, and closed the door on the Tardis, but I will keep trying...  And for any of my geeky friends, Your Doctor May Vary...)

  3. I know I have seen that somewhere...HMMMM. I will let you know if I come up with it. I can see where with a little creativity you could convert that to a Tardis.

    1. Hey, we can't watch everything, but the photos should explain what I am aiming at...
