Father's Day gift for my geeky husband.

I converted our outside, basement door into the Tardis. (The time machine from Doctor Who) It's the perfect entrance for his "man cave". I had some help with the power tools and details.
The first color try. I didn't like it so I took it back in and they fixed it for free.
The sign. I cut out letters and taped them on. Then I lightly sprayed with black paint. It took several coats.
After the right number of coats of paint I removed the paper letters.
The final sign after the white touch up.
Hanging the sign. We secured it right into the brick. The trim on the metal door was screwed right in too.
The final result!!
Doctor Who always parks his tardis in the most unusual places. My husband LOVED IT!!!! So did his geek friends. :)
