Today's artist is my very talented husband, Jeff! Woodworker, electrician, assemblage artist, painter, visionary, etc...
He'd been thinking of converting our dark basement into a family room for many years. Jeff visualized the entire room; sheet rock walls, a hung ceiling, recessed lighting, electric heating, paint color, wood flooring and how to decorate it.
He worked really hard and the results are just fabulous!
His decorating vision for the room was a Sci-fi/Retro look.

Jeff found the wooden gears online and put them together so that they ALL move when one is moved. I think that's amazing!

Saving and assembling these bits of old equipment is a great way to create Art and recycle. Jeff's Tardis, is now the focal point of the family room AND...
a functional storage space.

I'm sure Dr. Who fans are disappointed that it's not bigger on the inside, right?!
|To where or when would YOU travel?|
After completing the Tardis, Jeff remarked that building it used a lot of woodworking skills he knew in theory, but had never practiced.
Spoken like a true artist.
